    I've never been to this store. I think I will have to check them out next weekend.

    Um...correction needed...

    She has a "single-action rifle"? I think that is supposed to be a "single-shot rifle."

    Other than that one flaw, it sounds like sound marketing strategy mixed in with a good basic safety opening to teach children proper use of firearms. I will have to do something similar with my own store and the 4H kids I will be teaching to shoot later this year.

    BULLoney!

    A few years back, they put up a white paper about the evils of the gun companys marketing to youth so as to lure them into the evil gun culture.

    They carried on at length about the topic. I can't find the article now, I suspect it's been flushe down the memory hole.

    I read that in the paper this morning. I have been an occassional customer of B&S in the past. I am proud to do business with them in the future.
    When my daughter was a child, I taught her to shoot safely. Today she is 31 years old and has had a CHL since 1996. Now she has givien me a GRANDson and I am looking forward to the day when we are teaching him to be a responsible shooter, gun owner and hunter.
    Kudos to Beverly and Steve (B&S Guns)
    I plan on taking my GRANDson there for a visit and to maybe make a purchase.
    As for today, I am headed to the gun show at Big Town.

    Good job from B&S.

    Also there will be no future of the shooting sports and industry if there are no "new shooters" getting into shooting.

    Keep that in mind.

    Right.....sure, we believe you :rolleyes:

    Trouble is that you want so many "responsibilities" that no one will want to exercise their right.

    Glad the article was not biased. Things must be better (and different) in Texas. ( besides the food)

    I can only hope that this is the beginning of a trend.

    Thats pretty cool. The best way to solidify gun safety practices is to get 'em started at a young age.

    How come none of the shops I go to have a kids section?!? Well, coming to think of it, I'd probably consider it an insult. :D :p

    Well 22 junkie arn't we all little kids at heart. In fact I call the gunshop that I go to all the time my toystore. When I get a chance to go into a gunshop that I've never been into before I feel like a little kid in a toystore.
