Mr SNS at 21 with a brace of breaktop revolvers.

Top Break Revolvers and Suicide Specials: Many were poorly made all were basic, inexpensive, simple guns which sold at modest prices . “Suicide Specials" were the "Saturday Night Specials” of their day and age. Beginning in the late 19th century, a huge number of these were sold through various retail outlets. Examples are Iver Johnson, Harrington & Richardson, and (H & R Firearms)

The fastest growing 4H program here in Claiborne parish is the shooting sports program. Kids learn to shoot .22 rifles based on the NRA rules. This year for the first time we offered .22 pistol. I believe in encouraging new shooters regardless of age. That is the only way to insure the survival of hunting and shooting. We currently have volunteer instructors in skeet, trap, rifle and pistol. Students are required to furnish their own gun, but that is not enforced, if someone wants to shoot we always manage to find them a gun to use. 4H furnishes ammunition and targets. Dave

Passing shooting and hunting on to future generations is the surest way to protect it.

I've been trying to pass on my love of guns to my kids, but it only seems to have taken hold in one of the five.
I'm only shooting 20%. :(

I've walked down the street in my city with an FS2000. I have a pic somewhere of that...
