I can't remember the first gun I ever fired. I do remember getting a Daisy BB gun for my 6 or 7 birthday. It's no telling how many pounds of rusting BB's are around my old home site. I wish I still had that little gun, IIRC it had gun safety rules branded in the plastic stock, my Dad's safety rules were much harsher.
There on, from that age, shooting a rifle or whatever was expected and about as natural as activities like swimming, basketball, fishing, etc.
Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

Some time before the age of nine. My Dad would take me hunting for food, rabbit & squirrel with an Savage over/under rifle.

Started shooting .22 with my dad at 5-6ish, but only with him.
when i was 7 i got a crossman airgun that i was allowed to take out alone.
shot lots of stuff with my dad between 7 and 12, and he gave me my Rem. Model 7 .243 when i was 12.
then....well, i shot everything i could get.
I thoroughly disapprove of duels.
If a man should challenge me, I would take him kindly and forgivingly by the hand
and lead him to a quiet place and kill him.
