    Taking the kids and letting them participate is the best way to teach.
    We gave them each a .22 single shot for their 5th birhdays. A pistol at 12, and the rest come as we can afford it and that they can handle the rifle itsself.
    The oldest son had an 870 12 gauge when he was 10.
    .243 is an excellent "Girls" round..~LOL!~
    I have 5 girls, and they can shoot all day long....



    I get a Marlin "Youth" single shot .22 and I shorten them a bit, slim them up, give them a sling and make sure the sights are on.

    Then I take them along and gradualy let them participate, untill I can turn them loose on their own.

    I have a Stevens Modle 120 to fit to my 3 year old in a couple years.

    ya it is the trifecta, its a .22 and .243 and 20 ga, the .410 is to small of frame to fit the 243.
    i love it, saftey is great, and when the safteys off you can slip the hammer and the gun don't go off, so thats nice, cause sometimes my boy can't get it cocked right and it slips forward, but don't go off even on fire.
    LOP is a little long for him, i took the recoil pad off and it fits about perfect right now. its about 5lbs with the .22 barrel on, but really straight forward and simple and shoots really nice. i love it. and he does too.
    So only thing i'd like to change is the lenght of pull...shorten it up a bit. but oh well, took the pad off and now he can grow with it.

    That wouldn't be the Rossi Trifecta you got him, would it? 22, 410, 243? I wanna get my boy one for next year (turns 5 next Jan). How do you like it so far, if so?

    I can say from my experience, when my daughters were young they were much better hunters than my sons. They would be still and quiet when necessary, more disciplined and obedient. My oldest daughter now hunts whitetails with her bow on her own Treasure this time with your daughter Matt.

I may be wrong because I'm not a father yet but that's how my dad works it. Congrats to your boy and yourself for getting him out there and letting him experience hunting

    I agree, this is why we have sons-to do the heavy work-see my album entitled Montana hunt

    BRWNBR: That pic of ur young fella is priceless! That is something that should be on the front of a hunting magazine or a photo of alaskan living. I like your idea of using a small red dot for kids. I'm def. going to try that for my kids. It just makes good sense. No recoil from the 22, and no iron sights for the youngster to try and align. Good job, that young fella will be your hunting buddy for life!

    he's got a little rossi .22 with a fastfire red dot sight on it, really simplifies it for kids and gets them shooting pretty stinking good...quick.
    Great picture !!!!! Nothing I like seeing better than a youngster out hunting. BRWNBR you got a future and present hunter there keep up the great work and congrats to the youngster
