When I was a kid back in the Carolina woods my father was my first shooting instructor, he taught me how to shoot a 410ga shotgun. After learning the basics of firearms safety, he let me shoot the single shot. Should have seen the smile on my face when I knocked the tin can off of the fence post at 20 feet down at our horse corral. The very next day he took my brother and I out into the woods squirrel hunting. We just watched as he shot gray squirrels down out of the trees. Afterward we took them home, cleaned them up and cooked them for dinner. Squirrels were pretty good eating back then.
How did you start out shooting and hunting ?
