I use to go squirrel hunting with my dad when I was 5. He would kneel and aim, and I would stand behind him and pull the trigger It was a Sears Roebuck bolt action single shot .22, iron sites, and it was extremely accurate. I had that rifle for 25 years. Loved it.

When I was 12 I went camping in some private woods with a group of friends and their fathers. One of the dads brought a little .22 revolver, and we took turns blasting away at cans.

I did not have the advantage of a shooting dad. The 1st gun I fired was the M1 Carbine when I was 18 and in the AF. That was 53 years and a lot guns ago. My kids shot their 1st time at 5.
