I got a .22 for Christmas when I was twelve. We lived on a farm in the middle of nowhere so there wasn't much damage I could do aside from the local bird population. I grew up around guns so I knew the safety stuff, which is what matters. I wouldn't give a gun to a kid in the suburbs, but you're out in the country, so it's all good. ;-D

We live in town, but we obviously wouldn't shoot here. We'd shoot out at my dad's farm. And he will be taking a hunter's safety course before he even considers walking around with it. I let him shoot my .22 mag, but I'm right there, literally.

I've caught them coming out and I've never felt them to be really that hot. Maybe a different model or something. This gun's a bolt action so maybe that has something to do with it.

Reminds me of a not so plesant experience during basic training. WE were live firing the M-16s and one of my sheels ejectd and landed (or should I say stucki) to the neck of the guy beside me. Watching the TI peel that off was not fun to watch.

We were shooting .40 cal handguns this weekend and I thought about this. They're really not too hot at all. I mean when they hit the snow they melt it down a tad, but I can touch them immediately after they're ejected. Maybe it's the size of the rounds. My 7.62x39 never seem too hot either.

Alright, Guru, this had to have been a different caliber than a .22. Either that or you're exaggerating big time. :-b ;-)
