    My son, the mighty hunter

    My five year old had been learning to shoot a BB gun. I thought Iíd share pictures of my sonís first kill.

    I thought someone else may have a pic from their hunting expeditions (especially since many people hunt with a camera) that hey could share.

    oooooh dear. Nice aim there . I was all worried that he'd actually killed something and the pics were going to be all icky.... I'm not a big fan of hunting, at all.

    Oh my God. Shouldn't he have been supervised? Who was with him that let him aim at your car? I assume that's your car.

    I take it you have figured out how to post pictures.

    Yes, I believe that a boy with a BB gun should be supervised. My husband and I are in disagreement on this matter. It is true that a BB gun is relatively safe and don't usually cause damage, but I prefer supervision. As always- I won the argument.

    I was painting and my husband was doing some construction related thing when this happened. Mason came in and I could hear him telling his daddy that he needed him to come look at something. Husband said he was kind of busy and maybe mason could just tell him about it. Mason said he had done something on accident and it was really bad. Husband said what was it and mason told him he shot the window of my van. I had to hide a little because I got tickled about it (no one was hurt and I love when I'm right and husband is wrong). I couldn't be mad, not at mason anyway. We all went out to look at it and Mason asked what we were going to do about it. I said the first thing we would do is not shoot anymore unless there is a grown up around. and them I ran in to a salvage yard and picked up a new window and my husband replaced it real quick. As far as accidents go it could have been much worse. Mason now understands itís important to look at what is behind the target. We actually have a special place just for shooting with a large rock backstop.

    You've got the proof.

    Well at least he didn't try to hide and let you find it yourself. You guys are so self sufficient. I probably would have taken the van to an auto body shop and been charged hundreds of dollars.

    Is he not a bit young to be messing with a gun of any sort? I mean he is only five.

    Having been a city girl who was never knowingly around guns I can understand this question. I don't disagree with you.

    I am astounded that you find it funny to let a five year old kid play with a gun. I bet you'll find it as funny when he accidentally shoots someone.

    I've spent a lot of my youth in the country, and there is no way I would have been let near a gun at that age and i wouldnt even dream of letting my seven year old nephew near a real gun.
