    Shooting, Hunting, Fishing and nearly any outdoor activities are where the bonding in a family take place.

    Give yourself a "Pat on the Back", because that is so rare these days.

    My oldest grandson is 2 1/2 so the answer would be "no".
    However, we are working on "pew pew.........pewpewpewpewpew........pew".
    There are only two options as I see it.
    Either I'm right, or there is a sinister
    conspiracy to conceal the fact that I'm right.

    Can't agree more. My son and step daughters have all been involved (as they desire) with family excursions boating, fishing, rving, hunting, shooting blue rock and target shooting on our rural property. The girls are more the lake excursion type, although they do enjoy target shooting with handguns. The grandkids have also been on the boat, fishing and when I have a chance I use the ole' Heritage Rough Rider to help them learn basic safety (4 rules) and gun handling. We talk about what they should do if they see a gun (tell an adult) unattended anywhere. My son started with hunter safety education and similar home lessons. He's had a shotgun and rifle many years (from Dad), and recently purchased his own Beretta 96A1. I guess that's a long answer for "yes I do".

    I take my grandson deer hunting every year.
    "Guns are a lot like parachutes ~ If you need one and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again".

    The problems we face today are there because the people
    who work for a living are out numbered by the people that vote for a living

    "No man who refuses to bear arms can give sound reason why he should be allowed to live in a free country" Teddy Roosevelt

    Gun control is like trying to reduce drunk driving by making it tougher for sober people to own cars.

    My children seemed to have little interest in shooting. I took them a few times. Didn't really stick. Grandkids are still a bit on the young side, we shall see.

    I have taken my kids to the range on a regular basis. They enjoy it and look forward to going. Heck some days we shoot in the morning and fish in the evening.
    A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

    The 2nd amendment is not about hunting or shooting sports, it is about the citizens of this country having the means to protect themselves and the states from the tyranny, oppression, and misery of an over powering government. Modern rifles are a means for the citizens to stand up to an over powering government.

    I started mine early. I cut down (18-1/2")n a old single-shot Remington "Boy's Rifle" and put a Redfield aperature sight on back and a Lyman globe sight front on it. Cut 3"" off the butt, and stained, oil-fiished and boned the stock. They were 6,5, &4 whe we began. The son was a serious sight to watch at 6, whe he fired the 45, walked back up the two steps to the firing line, chambered another round and "rinse, repeat". By 8, they all were keeping them on the paper with the S&W 39 at 15 yds.

    One of the girls doesn't care about shooting, (married a guy who was into Mopar and drag racing).
    The other girl has my favoritee KelTec P-11 as her EDC. (She needs it - she lives in Virginia) and I gave HER daughter a SW9VE.
    Both boys have signifiant habits and arsenals.

    So, yeah. Three out of the four Started early, learned well, and continue to train.

    You must be careful what you pretend to be, because in the end, you are what you pretend to be.

    My son is 8. Its about time I get him a .22. He has expressed interest in my daily carry. I have told him that he shouldn't touch it and it's not a toy. One day I'll take him to the range with me. Thankfully I got private access the the local PD range. *perks of growing up with the head of CID*
    Speed doesn't kill you. It's the sudden stop. That's what gets you.

    Whenever I can. Only two of my grandkids live nearby, but the oldest has been to the range with me several times when he came to stay weekends with us in the past.
