  1. So-so much depends on the child, so-so much depends on the parents, so-so much then depends on the other kids the child hangs with... {most of the time about 50%-80% is the influence from their little friends}. If you really could tell what a kid was thinking all the time, or even get a grasp on what they truly understand, from what you think you just taught them........ you should be a teacher or a psychic {kid whisperer?} I have taught firearms to both Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts , and even a few Marine recruits. Kids do all kinds of things that can be pretty strange with a weapon---- toy or otherwise. There is a lot to learn and failure can be a high price. Well-- I will firmly stick to my assertion that a progression of training starting with an Airsoft, then a BB/pellet , then a real gun will work very well to train a child as they grow into guns. It works, and the degree of foul ups are slowly learned on the way to more lethal weapons. Kids seem to really respond to the slow trajectory that they can actually SEE from the brightly colored plastic projectiles. It is a strange world for a Kid today , kids can do some odd stuff >>> like this for example {{PS. we spray-painted the Airsoft pistols with some sky blue paint. Not just because it shows it to be more like a toy, BUT cause the kids kept loosing the black ones in the tall weeds. Blue paint helps in finding them! Kids will be kids.}}
  2. Airsoft guns for a 10 year old are great. I do agree they could look a little more like toys, versus the tactical look! But the parent/adult that buys them seem to be the marketforce for the manufacturer and the seller. Giving a 10 year old a pellet gun, or a real gun, FIRST and you are asking for trouble. Kids will be kids; and it is usually the good kids' friends who mess with the wrong gun. Unless you have 24/7 supervision of the kid and their friends they hang with, why on earth would you give em' a real gun first? If the kid can't safely handle an Airsoft, then they sure don't need anything more lethal. I have instructed at least 5 kids using airsoft pistols. I trained them as if the gun "were" real. I also trained them to shoot at a target in a pond (I know shooting a real gun in water is a NO-NO...and I told the kids this, but airsoft water shooting really tells the kids a lot about their aim.) Get an airsoft , when they grow out of it , then move up to a pellet/BB.

    Help Please

    Figure 8, can also be seen like a "Snowman". The front bead {near the muzzle end} is the Snowmans' top half. The middle bead is the Snowmans' bottom half. When you look down your shotguns rib, the snowman should be put together correctly. Top half (front bead) above the bottom half (mid bead).
  4. The young dude is in luck. Maryland Municipal Code sec 152.87n par. 5 allows for strict interpretation of the subsequent code of the bushido. Since he may claim that he was defending the castle of his master ,and thus the honor of any virtuous maidens held within; he is exempt from punishment by the shogun of the emperor. But if it is found his deed of bravery was not admirable.... well then, it's seppuku for the dude.
  5. Ooooh, I know what that is! It is a Straw Man Argument. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Straw_man Dumbduck invents some reply to a comment that was never made here, then boldly refutes it with fallacy (B.llS..t) Since a man from Texas told me to read my history ...here is a historical fact fer you. >>> this guy (the one with the towel on his head) is a Saudi prince. 15 of the 19 hijackers on 9/11 were HIS subjects. Now since this arab guy has a lot of money ($ and oil $) , well Dumbduck, maybe you can figure out the rest ......... TokenWhiteMale: spoken like a true tea bagger with the gusto of Rush dittohead! Where'd you get your Percocet scrip?
  6. "There's an old saying in Tennessee — I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says, fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can't get fooled again." ~ President George W. Bush, 2002 now its a time to go ponder some deep thoughts:p
  7. Then sir, that is exactly the way a respectable black man duly elected to the Office of the President Of The United States should be treated. Respectfully agreed with. Or respectfully dis-agreed with. Keep up the respect, and you will make me proud to say that you are a righteous fellow American and a gentleman.
  8. Oh, so that is the reason. And just how would you treat a 'respectable black'?
  9. texas >> on der topic of relative 'intelligence'; thankie for the lessons (by yous example) on grammer and punctooation ! it shurin is a heap eezier not havin' to hit the shift key! i will now tries it. well i took yous advice and reads my history book and lookie what i find; didin' you know that states like texas were a slave states? even found out that the republic of texas (tejas?) was based on keeping black men, women, and children as imprisoned slaves to work for their master texans (massa?) . the slave state continued when texas joined the confederacy an only ended by the yankee defeat of the whole south! since that time, to present, there are many who hate blacks and the federal government in the south, these race & gumbermint haters' are collectively (luvin'ly) referred to as 'rednecks'. thankee much on the advice to read the history. you is keepin us infromed . it surin' explains a lot about the feelings afor the black president today. oops..gotta go now, glenn beck is on the fox news and is gonna tell us what to think {and do}, see ya at the next 9-12ver teabaggin' meeting!
  10. Liars !!!! .... Liars !!!..... YOU ---- YOU ----- Socialist Commie's ain't a gonna git my Grandma with your Liberal death squads !!!...... No brainwashin' our children afore they gets their G.E.D.s and their very own double-wides .... Wheeeew. The above rant was directed at no one on this Forum. It was merely my morning teabagging exercise. Gosh, it felt so good to git things offin' my chest (and away from the voices in my head:D). Now, please continue. I believe some of you were engaged in an incomprehensible conspiracy based on rage and hatred of a black American President? Carry on ........... with your delusions.
  11. I come back, and y'all already lost me. Why use butter instead of toilet paper? Is it a Texas thing, the rest of us just wouldn't understand?
  12. A cornsprisee birther blog from a Canadian website? But, why do they hate America so much? Aren't their any Black people in Canada, or do they want us to follow their Queen? I'd love to chat a bit longer but I gots' to go get my Oxycontin and teabags ready for the next townhall meeting. Hey Verna, gets' me my I tacticol tools, I seez me an intruder.......... OOOPs, NSFW

    Ready?

    Nice boat and motor! I have a 14' Jon boat that has a V-Twin 23hp Briggs longtail . I use float pods on the back to raise the rear. In nearby Illinois, the early-season goose hunt is scheduled for Sept. 1-15, while the teal season is Sept. 5-20. Good luck...
  14. Geeeee... I just got my Three Wolf Moon T-Shirt and I think it is great to wear to attrack wolves (and eagles). Check out the other customer reviews before you wear one hunting: http://www.amazon.com/Mountain-Mens-Three-Short-Sleeve/dp/B002HJ377A I wonder , how does wolf taste? Let us know if you BBQ it.

  15. Leave your choke alone. 17 out of 25 is very good for a beginner. Why mess with success? If you play SC on that same course again, best thing to watch for is HOW you are breaking the clays with your existing choke(s) and ammo . In general, in general, in general new guys try to "open up" a bit (like Novaking said) to LM or IC. BUT every gun is as different as every shooter (also I'm assuming your shooting single barrel 12gauge auto??) Don't change your choke setting until you have shot the game more, and especially till you try different ammunition. Your IM choke may be the same pattern as some other guys LM choke (in his gun). Don't mess with success , yet .... too early to change anything. Work on another 17/25 , and then another, with what you have now. You will learn a lot. (PS.... Sporting Clay ranges are usually 50 to 100 shot courses, you have plenty of time to know what choke to use.)
