A whole lotta truth here.
I just got back from teaching a bunch of boy and girl scouts basic rifle skills. We shot paper at first, but then finished-up with steel silhouettes, spinners, and a "dueling-tree".
The kids had so much fun they were glowing. Which was a good thing 'cuz the kids whined and weaseled "C'mon -- just one more target (25 rounds) -- pleeeeeeze!" until it was nearly dark.
The best thing that a parent or adult can do is to teach safe firearms-handling and marksmanship to the next generation.
