By the time i was ten years old, i had a .22 bolt rifle, a h&r .410, and was picking out a Marlin model 60. My nephew had his first deer by that age (supervised). Of course, it was my family that taught me about firearms, not a interweb forum; i guess i understand that rule. It would be nice to have a "kiddie pool" area of the forum, but that might be a lot to ask of the staff.
Dead Bears, the only good kind.
