LOL, We're sticking to the pellet gun for now guys!!
Downsouth has seen him shoot with help, and he's shot some .22 pistols with help, but it's time he learns to handle himself on his own with a rifle.

He's a fast learner, but he's still not safe enough on his own yet (meaning, without me having a hand on the rifle) for a live, gunpowder and lead type gun, be it a rimfire or a .410...

I only had to jump his case twice for putting his finger on the trigger and failing to safe the pellet gun.

Good job on teaching him safety. When he can use a gun by himself, definetly concider a .22 or a .410 for his first gun. He'll treasure it always.

Don't be a wuss Trip; nothing teaches firearms safety like driving your parent to the ER.

What about a bow?

He's actually been practically begging me for a bow. Maybe for Christmas...

(insert nervous laugh here...)... lol.... I think...
His actual birthday is this Thursday. Maybe a SCAR 17 by his...20th birthday?
Nah, sorry, I'll buy him a car before a gun with that price tag. But, he'll more likely be buying his own car too, or I'll just give him mine with that lifetime warranty, all I'd have to do is just keep it registered in my name to keep the warranty.

Here's a funny...
I put a notice on a local facebook page, kinda half jokingly, "will work for ammo". I got an offer I guess. Guy said he needs some leaves raked. I told him to send me his address, and I'll be there in the morning.

Did I really just do that? Yes, I guess I did... And I'm gonna follow through too.

Cinder , its a 5.7 gen 1 with a small girly cam and intake . Its his daily driver so nothing wild . SOunds good but it resonates the shop doors and walls TERRIBLE !
Got it stable but I need to set timing and fix a dang oil leak on the valve cover .
Change oil and figure out why the secondary is not opening .
Should have put a stall converter in it but he is on a budget .
Damn thing stalled right in the middle of the intersection ... in the rain and int he dark thanks to choke flap closing up when I floored it .... FACE PALM !
