Police & Child Services show up...

Fox News: New Jersey police and Dept. of Children and Families officials raided the home of a firearms instructor and demanded to see his guns after he posted a Facebook photo of his 11-year-old son holding a rifle.

“Someone called family services about the photo,” said Evan Nappen, an attorney representing Shawn Moore. “It led to an incredible, heavy-handed raid on his house. They wanted to see his gun safe, his guns and search his house. They even threatened to take his kids.”

Moore was not arrested or charged.

I was older, about 14!

But, my dad let me shoot his double barrel shotgun, when I was ten! That was the last time I asked! Darn thing nearly knocked me on my butt! I think hunting has given me a more complete knowledge of my world. It, also, showed me how devastating a GSW could be on a small animal. It, also, gave me a better understanding of the finality of death! (here on earth)I would never want to do that to a human. I hunt more with a bow, nowadays!

me too

and i still have it. it's a 20g single shot. :P

I use Blue Wave, but don't expect one of THEIR silly taglines.

Mine was/is a .410

Then I got a .22 when I was 13.
