We Civil War reenactors enjoy, but fear, letting children shoot our big black-powder guns just for fun. I just bought a set of ear muffs and goggles for next year. We know that EVERY Civil War reenactment or event is a potential lawsuit just waiting to happen, no matter how careful we are or try to be. God! Like those idiots who let that 8-year-old boy shoot that UZI, thinking it was funny until it flew up with recoil and put a bullet under the kid's chin. Still, we get a kick out of it, their parents taking pictures of them with us, the first time that they had fun shooting guns with us.
