My son said if I didn't take pictures he wouldn't give it back. To all concerned it is UNLOADED.

Need to teach him to keep the finger off the trigger. Nice looking rifle (and son, too!)
Link Posted: 6/22/2002 3:21:31 PM EDT
He asked me before he put it on the trigger if he could.

Nice pics! When I clicked this thread I thought it was about the old magazine "Boys Life". Anyone remember that mag? Is it still in print?
Link Posted: 6/22/2002 5:52:56 PM EDT
Yea I Kind of remember it. I need to take a poll of the ages of people on this site.
Link Posted: 6/22/2002 5:58:06 PM EDT
Actually, it probably isn't that great of an age yardstick. I'm only 27, and I got Boy's Life when I was a cubscout.

Did you make him check the chamber first to verify the weapon wasn't loaded? Good training in Rule 1 for the kid

Ditto! flashback to cubscouts. "May I start a fire for you ma'am?"

Yea your a baby yet...And yes he checked the chamber even though I told him it was unloaded. He has had a Hunters Safety Class. Belongs to Freeport Jr. Rifle Club. and is about to take the NRA classes when I get some money together and don't have to travel to the end of Long Island.

YES, there was a magazine by the name of Boys Life. It finally got cancelled back in 87 when subscriptions fell off to a bare minimum. Seems like they were only being subscribed to by the Catholic Priesthood.

He has been at Calverton, Mitchell and Freeport. He has a CZ452ZHM and is going to a shoot at Roslyn Rifle Range next Sat. He is also going to try for his High School Rifle team.....My Son needs lots of practice. He hates shooting with the glove, Jacket useing proper stance.

All he wants is shoot AR15's and now AR10..Which isn't going to happen. He needs to get the basic steps down before banging away. Also his age keeps it illegal to shoot anything over a 22 at this point.

Practice, Practice, Practice...you can never have enough.

I always like seeing pics of kids with firearms. Let's you know that another generation is going to support the 2nd.

Nice looking kid....and rifle!

Well now you know what to get him for Xmas or his b-day..... An AR .22 conversion kit!

Link Posted: 6/24/2002 5:31:08 PM EDT
What? Is that some sort of local law?
since when are there caliber/age limits in NY?

as for Boys Life the magazine, I got it as a boy scout until I turned 18 and left the troop, in 1997

Afraid so kids till the age of 18 and I might be wrong cannot legally own a gun, They cannot shoot anything higher than a 22 cal.
It also has some restrictions on shooting Game. Yes were all messed up. A kid could come from NJ and compete in the Olympics but a kid living in NY is banded he is under 12. Just found this out
Link Posted: 6/24/2002 10:10:40 PM EDT
Oh no!!

It's HOME ALONE IV!!

Sorry about that...

You've got to be kidding. Why do you folks put up with that shit?
Link Posted: 6/25/2002 7:24:42 PM EDT
There are people working on that right now. There is a bill in Albany trying to correct this problem
Link Posted: 6/25/2002 9:22:35 PM EDT
never heard of that law. I was hunting deer at age 16 in NY with a shotgun. Owning a gun may have an age limit of 18 but I know of no restrictions on what can be fired
Link Posted: 6/26/2002 4:21:28 AM EDT
Not sure about N.Y., but typically the rule is that kids under a given minimum age (15-18) are not allowed to be in possession without being accompanied by an adult.

Hey , Great pics , Great Kid , Great weapon. But how in the hell did you guys elect Hillary ? Didn't you guys remember your American History class from 7th grade? You know , about the carpetbaggers in the south after the War Between the States ? You do remember don't you ?
Link Posted: 6/26/2002 9:15:29 AM EDT
Yea I know I guess we were just out numbered at the booths. Maybe sooner or later people will wake up.
As far has I know a kid is not allowed to shoot anything over 22 cal. Until the age of 18. He is not allowed to own a pistol till 21. I need to look closer into it.

Same thing like if you own a pistol your not allowed to let anyone else shoot it. Stupid laws and they just started messing with the hunting Rules and children also.

Damn man, you need to leave NY. I started shooting .22's from my pop's lap when I was like 3 or 4. I went on my first Deer hunt last year when I was 14. Hell, in Arizona a 14 year old can be in the field with a gun by himself. (I believe it is 14, but it may be 16. Pretty sure it's 14 though.) Those are some really messed up laws man.

Looks like a good kid who has a Dad who cares enough to spend time with him. I see he is being trained in the shooting sports. That is good.
Enjoy your son, for he will soon be a man.
Have fun!
