I asked for a bb gun once and my dad flatly refused. Too dangerous he said. He then went and bought me a double barrel .410 shotgun instead.

His line of thinking: people dont think bb guns are dangerous and people use them carelessly. The shotgun you KNOW is dangerous, and you treat it much more carefully. Therefore, its safer.

I love how that guy thinks.

That is where parents need to teach their kids respect for firearms. Be it a BB gun or a high power rifle. That is also where most parents get into problems with giving their kids a BB gun for Christmas and setting up a target in their basements and allowing their kids the freedom of shooting it when they are not around.

My first rifle was a .30-06 that was given to me when I was 5 by a alcoholic uncle, I still have that rifle. But even when I first bought my own BB gun I took it out into the desert to shoot it. When it came into the house there were no BB's left in it and like the other firearms it was stored properly with them.

Kids these days can’t have any fun. We used to walk the neighborhood with our BB guns all the time.
Yup, those starlings perched on the power line made for a tough target from the sidewalk or pavement back in the day.

I hate those **** birds to this day.

I HATE starlings. Nasty, flying rats. Starlings and house sparrows are the only song birds I don't feel guilty about shooting when I was younger. They do absolutely nothing good for our native species.

I remember the days...walk down our neighborhood street with the old one-pump Daisy 860 over the shoulder. No one ever batted an eye, and that was in the early 80s. My grandparents had a 25-30 acre patch of woods across the street from their house, and I could get lost in there for hours. Of course, rabbits or squirrels were the "real" trophies back then. The dang fox squirrels were tough - if you didn't hit them in the head at close range, they just absorbed shot after shot while we danced around the tree I'd treed them in. Good times...
