    Wow!

    Henrys are sold in Northern Italy.

    And parts of Europe have a more gun-friendly culture than parts of USA.

    Luckily, for my budget, my daughter will do anything to avoid being seen as "girly".
    She avoids pink like the plague. So any normal weapon will do.

    This photo featured on the CF journal was taken by Oleg several years ago.

    you have to take into account that my daughter was 5 when she started shooting, 6 when she got her first rifle and 8 when she got her first handgun. shes currently 9.

    im sure in time she will only care about the features of a gun as opposed to the color scheme.

    Jerry,
    Perhaps you misunderstood me. I was not criticizing the color choices that your daughter made. Absolutely nothing wrong with pink, if that is what she likes. I was simply stating my daughters' preferences.

    It is very commendable of you to start your daughter off with firearms training at such a young age. I just wish there were a lot more responsible parents like you.

    Paul,

    My current residence is Lost In Middle America.

    Before that it was a suburb of Mansfield and before that west of Dayton out in the back side of nowhere.

    I don't particularly like the winter as I get older, but I can't stand any more heat than we have here.

    Buckshot, I lived in Shawnee Township off Fort Amanda Road from 1987 through 1989.

    It was ok then but I have to say I don't think it compares well with other places I have lived.

    What a thing to mention in the parent's corner. Then again...it's guys like you that make it mandatory for girls to learn to shoot.

    Never ventured in any of them, Jerry. Only occasionally had a beer near the plant, too far to drive home. I got within hailing distance of the house before starting social hour, usually. Just a practical thing.

    I gave my daughter a pink cricket for Christmas when she was 4. I think I've posted pics before but just because this is "parents corner"..I'll brag what a proud Daddy I am!

    Notice the trigger control? SO PROUD! That was 4 years ago, she finally fits the rifle now.

    My daughter was 7 years old when I got Henry mini bolt single shot riffle for her.
    Now, she is demanding for a CZ 452 Scout.

    Trouble is, these jerkwads can pass dumb, self-serving, agenda-driven stupid laws much faster than we can beat them down in the courts. And they're well aware of that.

    Why do you have to buy guns/ rifles for your kids at a very young age? They should be playing with dolls and not guns. Sorry, it's just my own opinion.

    Sharleen,

    It teaches responsibility and that they can be trusted. Again they do NOT play with them but use them as tools that are respected. The grandkids do have toys to play with, guns to shoot and dirt bikes (ie combustion engines) to ride. As parents we all must base our decisions on the maturity of the child/young adult.
