    are those mini ak's :eek5:


    and yeah, if we taught kids early, then we wouldn't have near as many problems today. It was part of my culture growing up, and i turned out just fine.

    look like full size 74's to me. I was brought up around them and I haven't gone on a shooting spree yet. During my fathers time they actually taught marksmanship in school.

    yeah, i too was brought up around guns and learned from an early age "guns are not toys". No shooting spree in my future.

    Wow. Im guessing this is an old picture?
    I too was brought up and told at an early age that if I ever handled a gun improperly I would get my ass beat.

    Even showing them proper bayonet handling :cool:

    My ten year old daughter already has her own 10/22 and thinks her greatgrandfather's Colt Woodsman is her's too. (not quite yet :) )

    She learned early as I did, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

    Yup, a little education can go a long way. Never once did I go grab any of my dad's guns to show them off or play with them. I understood that they were dangerous if I didn't know what I was doing.

    Ya, that's really how small Ak's are. I always joke about how they're made for 14 year old Vietnamese girls.

    I worked at a Boy Scout camp rifle and shotgun range for two summers, in gun-friendly New Hampshire, though the council the camp belongs to is in central MA.
    This one bitch who lives down the road from the camp (moved there from the heart of Boston) continuously calls the police, trying to file noise complaints, and complaining that it's dangerous for kids to be around guns.
    So far, the biggest injury we've had was a kid cutting his finger by somehow getting it pinched in between the shotgun pump and the mag tube. Unless you consider the countless bruised shoulders to be injuries, I'd say we're doing pretty good.
    And any time the police cheif shows up, all he does is shoot with us and hit golf balls into the lake with the camp director.

    That sounds like the biggest cunt in the entire world. :ugh:

    I hope the police charge her with filing numerous false complaints

    She's a good 3 miles down the road too. we have neighbors barely 1/2 mile down the road and we never hear a thing from them. And we only shoot during daylight hours too. What else do you expect from someone from Boston?

    exactly.. start them off on a BB gun if you want.. then move on to a 22..

    but I figure any completely healthy kid should be able to shoot under 2 MOA consistently by the time they are 10

    GET OFF MY LAWN!
    I started with a Daisy 880 bought for me for my 8th birthday, then a Remington Nylon 66 .22 a couple years later. Had .22s at the boyscout summercamp and even got to hang out with my dad at the ISP range and learned to handle his 38 revolver and the trooper's duty weapons (S&W .357 and 9mm) before I even turned 10.

    I still remember very vividly my dad showing me what a gun does by putting a watermelon on the range, telling me that it's just like a human head, then blowing it apart. I never once wanted to go play with the guns and treated them with respect.

    No. its a .22 single action revolver. Lightweight alloy frame. Made in the 50s or 60s.
    Way back when there was a gun dealer around this area they called the crazy dutchman and he had more guns than he could get rid of.
    He died and they auctioned off several hundred guns he had in in his store and collection. Most of them never used.
    My grandpa at the time didnt have much money so he only bought one, the Bearcat
    Got it for $32.50 though

    shooting it and asking the kids if anybody can put it back together I think is what he is referring to.

    that's it?! A watermelon isn't even a living thing! Kids and their parents are WAY more violent to a bug they step on just because they exist...
