I'm gonna start my son next year when he turns 10. I will be purchasing him a .22 rifle (not sure which make or model). Of coarse this will be in my possession 99% of the time and he will have supervised range visits. I will turn it over to him when I think he's ready for the responsibility (most likely 21 year old).
How old were you when you first started shooting? I started when I was 8. I started with a 12 guage. Nice, right? LoL!
