I grew up in a family that hunted... well, the boys did anyway. I never had much interest in it and we moved to the lower 48 just before I was old enough to go with my Dad on a moose or caribou hunt anyway. I did fish a lot and still love to fish. I have fired a gun several times, but it's not something I enjoy. I have never owned my own gun. We just got our kids their first BB guns as early Chanukah presents. They are super excited and can't wait to go after the gophers that are rampant around here. What age did you, or your kids, get their first bb gun or other gun?
