I am a firearms instructor and started teaching my son at the age of 5. First exposure was my duty gun and then the safety video from the NRA featuring Eddie the Eagle. He will shoot his first BB gun next summer. His first .22 a year later if he shows genuine interest. Will constantly know the 4 basic rules of firearms safety.
I could make a list of a bunch of guns i have, or "have", or wish I had. Why would one feel compelled to provide that infornation freely? Do you feel the need to show off? Is it some immature game of oneupsmanship?
