I can't even imagine what it's like to grow up without guns. Everybody in my family, as far back asanybody knows, has had guns and many have done some gunfighting with them. I was 8 when I got my first gun of my own, but I had been shooting for many years before that. Of the current generation, my nephew killed his first turkey at about 4 and his first deer at 5, with some help holding up the shotgun and rifle. He currently ownes more guns guns, knives and bows than most members here and he's about 13. His sister got her first deer last year at about 9 or 10. My wife's family is the same.
