Another thread is about what the best gun to start a kid.When we(brothers) were kids our first gun was a stick.Our dad would make us carry a stick to teach us how to carry a shotgun.If you pointed it wrong or did something wrong he would correct you.We also were gun cleaners before we were allowed to really hunt.After he felt we were ready we all started with the same Harrington&Richardson 410 single that my dad started with.After that was a Model 12 16ga. or side by side Montgomery Wards 20ga depending on which brothers were hunting.It wasn't untill highschool until I had my own gun.A Citori. It's still my favorite.On the other thread,if I was buying a shotgun for a kid starting out it would be an 870.But the absolute best gun to give to a kid eventually is one that belonged to thier Dad or Grandpa.(just my opinion)
What was the shotgun you started hunting with?
