    My dad was against toy firearms (to include BB guns). He said they teach bad firearm handling habits. I now understand his rationale.

    The difference between a Socialist and a Communist is that the Socialist doesn't have all the guns yet.

    I went backwards. Dad started me with a 12 gauge only because where we lived we couldn't shoot unless we went to the club which was trap and skeet only. I was about 10 i think. A couple of years later we moved to NY and lived in the country and got a .22 and shot holes in anything i could use for a target.

    You know that little thing inside your head that keeps you from saying things you shouldn't? Yeah, I don't have one of those.

    I agree with the rationale that toys cause bad habits I made my son handle every gun toy or bb as a real gun at no point anytime was he to point even a toy gun at someone. But for BB guns they can teach a lot of important stuff such as trigger control and using iron sights properly before the noise and recoil cause even more bad habits. A 22lr doesn't have a lot of recoil but to a 5 year old it can still be kinda scary

    My first gun was a 10/22 and I wanted much more at the time.

    When I was a kid, my Daisy Model 25 was as good as a 30.06, to me.

    I could hit a dime at 50 yards, too. I'm surprised I didn't wear that thing out.
