To some of you all this is going to sound odd, but I think the most important gun I have ever owned was a BB gun. I grew up in the city limits so I couldn't go shooting when ever I wanted, granted the closest place to shoot was a short drive away but time was limited. So when I couldn't get to the range I went out back and shot my BB gun worked on my form...etc. Ammo was really cheap $10 for 1000 bb's at one point I was going through 3000 bb's a week. Well I'm older and I still have the same bb gun I even went out and bought a high powered pellet rifle for small game. I honestly believe that the bb gun is one of the most important guns an person can own, just recently I got my oldest nephew one so he could shoot, granted he's not that great yet but he's getting there. Also I hope it will teach him proper gun safety so maybe when he gets a little older we can take him out to the range with the 22 (sister says he's too little) while me and my sister don't see eye to eye if it weren't for the bb gun I wouldn't shoot like I do today. I hope to make this sort of thing a tradition in my family, just out of curiosity what do you all thing?
