thanks guys. i do have some air rifles in the attic somewhere. ill start him on that.
my biggest concern is him being mature enough to observe safe handling procedures. but i will be sure to keep my attention 100% on him at all times.
im also gonna start him at paintball, and maybe thats a better start point as mistakes are more forgiving so long as masks are kept on.
when i agreed to be his godfather it never occured to me that my friend might pass away before his time. but its time to man up and raise his son to be the kind of stand up sob my friend was.
