continuing with the great tradition I just bought my 9 year old son his very first gun, a new 702 plinkster .22 from Mossberg. the wife even helped pick it out for him (I'm lucky to be married to a fellow gun nut). the boy cried in happiness as soon as he realized it was his and not another one of daddy's toys. just thought i'd share that

That s awsome. Especially the not daddys share toy.

So when he tells daddy no don't wine. lol

I think you will have just as much fun watchn him shoot as he will shootin.

That is AWESOME! It instills confidence in your children when given a gift like that. No longer are they reliant upon your guns to shoot, but have thier own, to call thier own. Right there, thats baby steps to responsibility. Good call!

Good deal

I take my 5 yr old grandson and he loves it.
He picks up brass at the range and has a collection of various sizes.
Good learning tools.
If more people did that we would not have so many accidental shootings.
Regards, :lol:

btw, his first shot with it, he hit a coke can at about 50 yds. then missed the next 20 or so times, but he was hooked after the first crack of the bullet.

Whenever I have a kid, they will already have all the guns that they are ever gonna have time to shoot... I plan on giving my son/daughter their first gun on their 8th birthday, as long as they show the maturity necessary for them to have it as their own. If not, they are going to wait until they are 10 at the earliest.

I still have my first gun: Remington .22 single shot, given to me by my father when I was 14. Getting that, was like winning the lottery to me.
