My eldest son is turning13 this Thursday and so happens a friend of mine was selling a brand new never fired Colt 22lr pistol. For 350 and would allow me to make payments on it and give me the gun before I paid it all off... How could anyone resist! my boy wants to get into competitive target shooting ( where can I find a JR. League??) and I think this will be quality father son bonding time! I am so excited, he really wanted the Ruger MKIII/22 but it was almost 600 and between you and I I think this one is nicer and easy slide will help him out... What do you all think? It is not a Glock but good for his smaller grip and good starter gun?

Me three. I think for me as I had an absent father even when he was around was not a very good one. Not that I am griping he gave me a great example the one not to follow. I just do the opposite. My dad had guns I never shot with him not once, he had many rifles and not once did he take me out to shoot those either... So for me it is do the things I wished my dad had done for / with me... So my sons can have it better than I did.

Way to go. It's good your son has the interest. I would have loved if my dad took me shooting let alone BOUGHT me a gun.
My son is on the high school rifle team and I can hardly get him to go shoot with me. Maybe it's me. Post some pics after you go shooting.

John Bender: You know what I got for Christmas this year? It was a banner f*^%#in year at the old Bender family. I got a carton of cigarettes. The old man grabbed me and said "Hey. Smoke up Johnny."

I have one of those, ironically my dad gave it to me when they came out. Mine is very accurate as I love to shoot plates at 25 yrds with it.
