She has the 60 gunner left hand grip on the stock!!!!! She's a natural!!!!Great thread, piggunner. Have you ever read the book "Guns Up" by Johnnie M. Clark? Great read about his time in Vietnam with the M60.
Anyway, this is my (then 10 year old) daughter last fall with a Remington 521-T Jr Special. I think it was built in the early 40's. .22 short, long or LR. She is obviously having a good time. She hung the target, an SR-1, in her room. No AR shooting for her just yet though
5yrs'ol is not too young if they're mature enough to memorize and exercise the Golden Rules.What age would you start a kid on a .22 LR? My friend's son wants me to take him sometime, but he is only 6 right now. I thought maybe in a couple years.
I have a turk 8mm that I cut the barrel down to 18" and drilled and tapped it for a scope and mounted a cheap 4x scope, I cut the stock down put a slip on recoil pad on it. it is my truck gun, it will shoot 2 MOA with good ammo or about 6 MOA with old surplus ammo, I can keep them all on a paper plate most of the time, it kicks like a mule.I had a 8mm Turkish Mauser as my first rifle. I plan to pass it on to my first son ( when I decide to start being responsible and not buy M14 stuff all the time like that's ever going to happen) when he turns 8.
But no kids yet. Not wife........possibly ever.
10/22 is a lot cheaper to feed.........My grandson had BB gun training at 5
At 6 he started with a cricket
He is now 8 , the cricket is way too short for him as with the last outing 2 weeks ago
Tossing up between a 10-22 or a 30 carbine
