You posters that learned early from good teachers are very lucky. My 1st shot was an M1 carbine on a military range at 18. Yes I had a BB gun but that was it. My parents did not own guns. NYC upbringing I guess. I found out my dad could not be trusted around guns. He gave away 2 of mine to a couple of his old buddies. I had them stored at my parents house while I was still serving. My kids started early and I used apples. Did not think of full soda cans. I really liked the Corvette.

We all know what you meant but you might want to edit that Biohazurd. Parents may not appreciate what you said about them. LOL (and then of course it leaves us wondering a little bit about you.) Just kidding. Have a good evening.

My dad wasn't a very good teacher...in ANY area of a boy's life. He gave me a BB gun, said "line this notch up with that peg on front, don't shoot anyone"

A few years later he gave me a 12 gauge mossy 500. A few years later I stole his model 60.

Never qualified less than expert on the rifle range, as I was shooting bumble bees on the fly at 6 years old with that daisy quick silver...

A long time ago, my Grandpa and I were out in the fields, and he had his .22 with him (I can't remember if it was with a .22 LR or a .22 Hornet) Well, there was this old tree next to a swampy pond, so he let me take a shot or two at it.

When I was 6 or so my dad took us to a sand pit. He had me shoot a Smith and Wesson 38 special j frame. It scared the heck out of me. To this day(40yrs later) I still hate to shoot that gun.

I was 9 years old and was at a friends house, we were in his moms room when she was rearranging her room and lifted her mattress to move it to the hall, when I spotted her .32 laying on the boxsprings. I had never handled a handgun at the time and mistook it for a toy, partly because it was a old revolver with the wood grips missing, just the frame threw me off. I picked it up to look at it, pointing across my belly sideways to the left, I pulled the trigger. It went boom, his mom comes in screaming grabs the pistol out of my hands, that's when I seen him, my friend was across the room laying face down in a pool of blood. His mom still screaming runs over to him, lifts his head to see blood squirting out of his cheek just below his right eye. She really starts freaking, I start screaming, at this point I just imagining she's gonna shoot me, I run, ran out the door heading to my house. I could barely get the words out to tell my mom, she called for a ambulance then went to help, I being a kid could just imagine the mom coming to kill me, I hid in my bedroom closet for hours, it took our pastor , my mom dad, and my big brother to talk me out. The boy lived, bullet entered just under his right eye, spiraling through his nasal cavity resting in a bundle of nerves in his neck, Dr's couldn't remove it in fear of damaging nerves, so its still there to this day. Though just 9 at the time, it was the worst day of my life. Needless to say when I was over the shock and sadness of it all, my dad apologized for waiting to teach me about firearms ( he planned on waiting till I was 10, about 3 months to long) I vowed to learn all about guns and safety soon after.
