Hope you all don't mind me posting my two cents worth. The tradition of a father or grandfather teaching his son/daughter or grandson/granddaughter
the proper use of a firearm is going the way of the dinosaur. I am from the south and teaching your child the safe way to be around firearms and the
proper way to conduct ones self when a firearm is involved is really woven into the fabric of our lives. A tradition .
I was ten years old when my dad bought me my first firearm. It was a 410 gauge shotgun, bolt action. That little shotgun still sits in my closet. It
was the very gun my son & daughter shot for the first time, the very firearm I used to teach them the proper way. Just as a dad teaches his son how to
throw a baseball and swing a bat, here in the south firearms as I said are woven into the fabric of our daily lives.
My children are grown now, my daughter is 27 and she shoots tighter groups than me at 25 yards. And that's with a little 9mm . My son is just a good.
Keep this tradition alive folks, it really really does matter.....a lot,
