I am a youth pastor and today I spent some time with one of our High School youth kids. But it was not what most ministers get the chance to do with a student. Today I taught a 14/15 year old young man how to be a responsible gun owner. His Father passed on a few months ago and left him "everything but the bills" This includes a Rossi 38 and Raven 25 and a shotgun.
He asked me to teach him how to take care of them and how to shoot as his father had been sick for some time and was unable to teach him. He and I will be going to the range next week but today I had the opportunity to purchase for him a cleaning kit and teach him how to use it. I taught him pistol cleaning today and the Boy Scouts are teaching him Shotgun soon.
I was most impressed that he wants to be a responsible gun owner. He is a good kid and one you all would be proud of. I am glad I have had the opportunity to get to know him over the last 6 months since he has come to us.
It was a good day.
