    Yep. Figures. Anyone keen at something will also have a keen interest in the tools to do it with.
    Guns don't kill people - drivers do.

    He may be a shooter later, One of the top American small bore and full bore shooters when asked about his rifles and ammo replied I don't know anything about them
    the armourer gives me the rifle and ammo and I shoot the match then hand it back, So all he has to think about is the match not wether his equipment is going the fail,
    When I first started shooting I had little interest in the rifle and how it worked I just liked shooting later I got into the mechanics of firearms and loading ammo,
    Some of the friends I hunted with had no interest in guns more than that it worked and was safe we spent time training to an acceptable level of safe handling and accuracy
    Our fathers had all served in WW2 and we had done cadet training at High school none of us ever shot anybody or committed armed robbery,
    You don't have to be a gun enthusiast to be a hunter the gun is only a tool used to gather meat or a gold medal

    I'd like to employ my personal armourer to clean my guns, sort the ammo, reloading and stuff. But she's not that interested.

    Where are the parents ... what are they instilling into their children's brains about firearm safety ... why do they not take ownership of firearm safety with their children ???
    ...amitie, respect mutuel et amour...

    ...le beau et le bon, cela rime avec Breton!...

    Get with the times, it's 2018 not 1970.
    Parents aren't required to teach their kids anything in this new improved modern world, it's up to schools, support groups etc to teach kids everything these days.

    Labour is in, so the state will dictate what our children will learn.
