Kinda says something don't it....
just showing that picture would have the libs freaking the hell out. I taught all of my kids how to shoot and defend themselves my dad thought it was a bit much teaching them how to knife fight as well as hand to hand stuff. but I do not worried about them in that way like a whole lot of other parents do.know how is to be pass on, or so I always thought. and I also know if they ever need it, they will know what to do. something I wished someone taught me back when I was a kid.
Good lads. Makarov 9x18. I should have bought more at $239.00 years ago.

Our high school in 1970's Southern Ontario had a rifle range and rifle club. Half the kids were rural and most of us shot for sport since we were kids. A WW2 vet teacher and a couple of local police officers helped run the club. No one thought anything of it. Different times.

Starting in elementary school (about 4th grade) we hunted from home to the school, gave any game we took to the school lunch lady who would clean and cook them (mostly doves and quail) for our lunch. We kept our guns in the coat room at the back of the classroom. We also zero'ed our rifles before deer season. First day of deer season was always excused from classes, but we still had to make it up later.
"We also zero'ed our rifles before deer season." Should have added the principle and the school maintenance man built a rifle range out back for giving instruction in shooting to the students. Mostly the boys but more than a few girls learned there.
My late father, who was in the US Army during the Korean War(but didn't serve in Korea) would have freaked over that picture. After he married, he went to work as a welder. Sometime in the late 50s he became co-owner of a gunshop in upstate NY. He was very selective as to who he sold to, and never sold any semi-autos; rifles or handguns. Dad was totally opposed to having kids shoot; I went in USAF at the age of 20 in 1977, and one condition was that I was not to get any firearms' training until I turned 21. He fired the M-16 as a reservist in the 1960s, but after firing it once gave his CO a choice: no M-16 or he would quit. He left the reserves that weekend, and never looked back.
