Recently I made the decision to teach my 8y/o son how to shoot. I thought he may be too young, but after speaking with some of you other fathers on here and gathering some great info... I figured its time. So today while at the local gun show I picked up this little Sears Roebuck model 3T. Semi auto, tube fed that fires .22 in all variants.. $80 out the door. It is in very nice shape for its age with minimal use. I hope he enjoys his Christmas gift as much as I hope to enjoy spending some range time with my boy.
