So many of you on here have stories of getting .22 at the age of 12 or younger. Or giving to your own kids at that age. What a dead tradition, thanks to liberalism. I wish the manufactures would bring back the advertising to the kids, I mean besides cricket. It was a great Christmas when a boy got his first .22. I loved the old ads! I remember seeing one with a .22 under a Christmas tree in an old TIME magazine.
