  • Those where some great photos.

    A drop-in 22LR conversion with an AR-15 is a great starter rifle. With an adjustable stock, they work for kids of all ages and then you can move them to 5.56 when they’re ready just by switching the bolt carrier. More traditionally, I like the Henry lever guns and the Savage Rascal is a great rifle for smaller kids. If you have a 22LR supressor, then the Savage FV-SR is one of my favorite plinker rifles for all ages.

    On the handgun side, lots of choices in 22LR these days. Most of the 22 semi’s are threaded or have an option for it – Walther P-22, ATI/Sig 1911’s, M&P 22’s, SR-22’s, Ruger MkIII’s… The P-22 and SR-22 are nicely sized for smaller hands and have light triggers. We have an older Ruger Single-Six that is also a favorite.

    Absolutely, Awesome stuff.

    I try to be sure the kids understand the constitution and the right to bear arms.

    I have four boys and they all know and appreciate firearms and firearms safety. My wife also enjoys to shoot. Currently we’re working at getting the whole family NRA Life memberships.
    Each boy has been hunting already and two have bagged their first buck. We look forward to a lifelong love and appreciation of firearms, personal protection, hunting and shooting.

  • I do not have children but it is always refreshing to see the youth get involved in the hobby.

    My almost six year old has a pink Crossman BB gun waiting to be opened. Maybe if she can prove she’s responsible with it, we’ll get her a .22. Even though it’s a BB gun it will hang out in the safe like the “real thing.”

    I destroyed waaaay too much stuff with my Daisy and nice Beeman spring air rifle…latchkey kid who had both by the back door.

    If you really loved firearms, you wouldn’t have kids. Roy knew.

    ‘Now, I love firearms, but have never owned
    a full-auto firearm.

    Roy has a bunch, all completely legal. He
    dates the girls, but has never let one talk
    him onto marriage. As a result, he has money
    for his hobby.

    As I told a guy that said, “Wow! What
    a great collection!”

    “Yep, that’s the wedding that he never
    had.”‘

    Be like Roy. Break the cycle, rise above.

    My dad wouldn’t even let me have a BB gun until I was 14. By that point, I wanted a real pistol.
