I was speaking at Champion Forest Baptist church in Houston the other day when a proud father showed me a video of his daughter shooting an AR-15. It wasn’t the shot that was so great, or even the rifle, but 3 seconds after the first trigger pull she turned around with her face aglow and exclaimed - “That was awesome!” And it is – shooting is a blast. My kiddos aren’t ready to shoot a .22 yet, but we have lots of fun with nerf and airsoft guns and as the video below shows – tomahawk throwing.
My six year old son loves throwing my old Hibben tomahawk. He isn’t quite strong enough to wield the full size Cold Steel’s I have, but he will stay in the yard throwing this smaller thrower a good 20 minutes at a time, and he’s getting quite good!

So take the kids shooting, doesn’t have to be the big guns, but anything is fun. Heck I just ordered some big bore blowguns, I know they will love those. And while you are at it, take a liberal shooting too. Nothing changes an antigun mindset like the truth – shooting is fun! And it’s quite safe and not that scary after all.
