Default For the kids

I have a 2 1/2yr old son & a 1yr old daughter. I recently received a bonus at work & decided to get my kids their first guns. I know their to young but decided to get the guns now while I have the money. Bought a Henry 22 & a Ruger 10/22. Here are some pic's:

I am a very short woman. I have my eye on a Henry Lever Youth rifle, too.
When my financial situation changes that is going to be my next gun purchase. You're a good Daddy.

As winds stated you are One Good Dad! I think it is important to introduce our children and grandchildren to good safety and clean sports. Like shooting, fishing and hunting as well as things that can be done as a family! G00D JOB!
The little ones are never too young to start teaching them safe weapon handling skills. Obviously using toy guns at this time!

I took my older son for his first time shooting a couple weeks ago. I think his going to love shooting the more he does it. With my daughter, I'm going to try and get her out this weekend. I found a nice range that I joined thats not super busy, so I can really help them out on the basics. My younger boy is 4 and I just don't know if he is mature enough. I'm thinking at the very least get him comfortable around guns and go from there.
