My wife and I are expecting our first child, a girl, the end of January. It seems to me that a youth model rifle would be the perfect baby shower gift...

I may end up buying her a gun before she is even born. Is that abnormal?

And don't forget to get them their very first mentored permit- and get them every year. Makes a wonderful collection, and when they go along in cammo, display it on them.

My first grandkid, a GRANDSON, is due April 7, 2012.

Yinz just gave me a perfect idea.

I'll guess a gun; a little camo jacket, BDU's; a mentored permit with license holder, and a pair of hunting boots? LOL

I got my first child, a daughter, a reloading kit for Christmas.
Also for Christmas, my newly born grandson is getting a camo hat, "Life's A Game - Hunting is Serious", also got him a Primos Deer Calling Pack, with instructional DVD. Don't know if he needs the DVD, other to verify what I teach him! LOL. Told his Mom and Dad I'm waiting for his first birthday to get him a new .22

At some point, probably around the age of 6,7, or 8, I'll get him a membership to a local gun glub that holds youth rifle shooting clubs and competitions. (.22 to start) That's how I started out and it pays off every single year.

They do youth field days and all kinds of other events too. They are in the process of getting a bunch of members certified as HTE instructors.

Im 39 now but my great grandpa bought me a rem 760 in .270 caliber the day I was born in 1972. I was the first great grandson for him. I don't rifle hunt any more only archery but I still have that gun and think about him. I think it is a gift that will last a few life times.
