Good job. Mine's still too small for anything bigger than a .22, but I swear his Mama been giving him miracle grow in his food, so we'll be moving up in caliber/power sometime in the next couple years.

Was this before or after he shot the .357? I'm guessing before.
Yep, before. I have to roll up .357 rounds just for him. My 125 gr JFN sitting on 15 gr 2400 might be too much for him i think. i rolled some the other night with 4227 for him for our next trip.( I reclaimed some bullets from some early experiment/failures that i used just for him to burn up) then i will give him the option of trying out my HV rounds just to see how he does. I think he can handle the HV rounds with the hogue grip on the .357.

He asked if he could shoot the 1911 on the way home the trip before this one. I figured he could handle it, so i said "sure". This day, when he reminded me, his mother tried to psych him out by getting all worried giving me grief about how it was too big for him. But he stepped up and "took it like a man"...in retrospect, i am now bit more poor considering they ALL want to shoot the 1911 EVERY time we go.

Please don't remind me, at least I've still got about 10 years. And at least he's the only one I've got, so I'll only have to buy one clunker!
I was given my first truck, but it was dragged out of a cornfield and I had to fix it and get it running myself, my son can look forward to pretty much the same thing.

When we had our first child, my mother cautioned us that putting stuff up out of a kid's reach was the wrong approach. She believed it best to teach the child to leave things that didn't belong to them alone. Worked well for my kids.

The only thing the young man did wrong was not hitting him in the head. The cost of that bullet would be saving taxpayers thousands of dollars per year.

I only got my ass beat once that I did not deserve. My dad apologized
for it. But that incident and how Dad handled it taugh me alot on what
it really takes to be a man.

My 12 year just "purchased" his first gun a few weeks ago (to be legal I
purchased it), they have 5 guns they shoot regularly that are "mine".

Anytime my boys want to see guns I get them out. I use the time as
weapons safety training. I have several parents who let me take them to
our range whenever there is time. Training and safety are at the top of list
for the trips.

Teach your kids about weapons and take the mystery and fascination away from them teach them they are a weapon and a tool, that can be enjoyed in a safe shooting enviroment but can ultimatley save your life and a life of a loved one. Then who's going to need locks.
The reporter showed her ignorance, assault rifle my foot, this weapon was used for personal protection. The label that is hung on a weapon should be for it's intended use, it was used for self defense, not to assault any one.

Congratulations to the young man for defending his family and home, even more congratulations to the dad that had the wisdom to teach him how to use the rifle. In today's world everyone in my home knows where the guns are and how to use them, and which ones to use depending on the need.

Now lets see how the media plays this out.

I kind of wondered about the "assault" rifle as well. I expected an M50 the way the media made it sound. Kudos to the kid and the father (or mother) that taught him responsible firearm use.

Assault rifle. Hmmpf. Guess that makes my Sig .40cal a pea shooter.

Well it IS an assault weapon....i would much prefer my kids have an assault weapon in the AR or 1911 platform as opposed to a kitchen blender platform.

ANYTHING used to beat/kill someone is an assault weapon...hell it coulda been an assault & pepper shaker!

We need to remember, and so does the media, that assault rifles of 200 years and more ago were of the black powder variety, where you put some powder in the flash pan, powder down the barrel, bullet down the barrel with a ramrod.
