Proven responsibility goes a long way.

Apply that to all you do, and you will have plenty of support for your activities.

This is sooo true.

Case in point: I allowed my daughter, an honors student through

grade school and high school, a lot of latitude when it came to

choosing her college and courses.

As well as displaying responsibility, you may want to get

some part-time work, to sock away some dough to pay for

ammo, accessories, and some nice firearms, when you come of

age.

Theres one key thing i forgot to mention. My parents are chinese, and so am i. Of course. And they want me to be smart and all that like normal asians but im not even close to that. Ive considered joining the army, but i know i cant go through what they do in camp. Sooo, i toke an interest in guns. Do you need a license for a .22?

I play airsoft ALOT, and i treat it as if it were a real firearm. But i guess ill just wait hmmmm . Ill just take my friends dad and beg him to let me shoot his ruger

A .22 is still a firearm so yes you definitely need to be legally allowed to own a firearm in order to own one.

Being a Veteran when you apply for a Weapons Permit is a

big plus. If you choose the armed forces, get a MOS with

a valuable job skill, like construction, electrical or, plumbing, so you can

transfer it to working trades when you get out ...

My son is 15 now and I have had him shooting since he was 10 years old. There is times when he wants to go shooting and I am not able or willing, he fully understands our family policy about him not touching any of the firearms I own with out me there to supervise him. I have taken him to several safety classes just to keep him aware of as much gun safety as he can intake.

What you may want to look into any firearm training class at the local gun shops, maybe your parents will be willing to go with you if they see that you are willing to learn firearm safety.

BB gun is expensive and almost cost the same as the real gun. Used to have a KSC Glock 18C with all modified parts i could buy from Hongkong.

If i were you, save some money and wait till the time comes. Respect whatever your parents say about guns for the time being. For now.. maybe play some MW3 or BF3?
