    dbrown1997 I do not mean to be a hard butt. But you have to understand we here are adults (most of us) and although we can understand that it is great to see a young man like yourself interested in guns(and it sounds like you have done some homework on guns) We do not want to incourage you to do ANYTHING with out your parents being involved.You sound like a smart young man and I am shure you understand that if your parents do not want you to do something and you take something wrong that is said to you here it could be trouble for ALL involved.So with that said I would like you to talk to your dad tell him how you feel remember he can't read your mind you need to talk to him. Do not TELL him ASK him about what you want. See what he has to say.
    If you get the info. about boys club or boy scouts or NRA shooting then he might see you are doing your homework and thinking about it.This could show him that you are responsable enough to get into it. He might even get into it with you to learn more about guns and end up takeing you shooting!
    Remember you are just learning and you need to learn to shoot the right way.You have a long time to learn ( we all learn something every day) You might as well do it the right way first.This includes how to handle talking to your parents about things they may or may not agree with.
    You can do it!

    If youre not legally old enough to go purchase one you cannot legally carry one without a parent present...

    You'll shoot your eye out kid!

    Just had to do it.

    Sounds like your best bet is to think like an adult on this one. Put together a plan of action say "Dad if I pay for your license would you pay for my first .22" >?

    See where that goes.

    Just in case you didn't get the reference it was from the Christmas classic movie "Red Ryder." The boy in the movie wanted a Red Ryder BB Gun for Christmas and the response from everyone was "You'll shoot your eye out kid!" He gets the dream gun, promptly goes outside shooting, and ricochets a shot into his glasses breaking them. Then, he remembers everyone's warning!

    Remember, most of us are old farts! ;)

    That movie was my life. I am sure most on here too. I remember drooling in the wilson catalog. Do I want the crossman or the daisy? Decessions decessions.

    I JUST thought of something & just RE-Read the hole thread just 2 make sure.

    WHAT IF---Somewhere along his DADS live
    POPS got in trouble and CANT get a FOID card?

    Maybe he Wont get one cause he CANT DBROWN
    (Something to think about)
    that could be a reason he dident get it yet!

    Never know he might not want 2 tell you the "Story of his Life"
    (Which I could understand if he did have a problem with LEO in his younger years!)

    IF YOU GET A GUN & GO IN HIS HOUSE
    HE GETS ARRESTED & BUT QUICK!

    ANOTHER reason you need to ASK YOUR DAD!!!

    I would just like to interject at this point.

    Do you actually sit down and talk to yer Dad?

    I mean no offense cuz I don't know you or your situtaion. Please try to understand where I'm coming from.

    Your Father raised you. He's spent his entire life looking after you and doing what he felt was in your best interest. And as articulate you are (for your age), it seems he's done a fair job.

    You on the other hand, have raging hormones wanting to create an abyss between you and him. Again, no harm meant. You are at the age that most young men want to distance themselves from their parents. You want to be independant, and it's completely natural. It's the way things work.

    I ain't no shrink, nor do I play one on TV. BUT...
    I can tell you that your Father knows what's coming around the bend. You will soon be gone (in his eyes). He has no intention of hurrying up that process. He loves you and he would love to have you around for a little longer.

    Try to see it from his eyes. If you should ever have children, you'll look back and understand.

    The only time I ever heard my Dad say 'I love you', was on his death bed. I still wish he was here. Why?

    Cuz I never really got to talk to him. He bad - my bad. We both lost.:(

    Put the guns aside. When you get up for school tomorrow, give him a hug before you leave. When's the last time you did that?

    Ok... Off the soapbox and on to paying bills.:bleh:

    But if thats the case mac, and there are certain restrictions keeping somebody from getting a foid in illinois, wouldnt one of the restrictions be against minors having one?

    Here in TX all you have to be is 18 for a long gun or shotgun and 21 for a handgun and have a felony free criminal record.

    Im not real keen in illinois law as I would die before moving to such states, but I would think if they restrict getting a FOID pending a criminal background then they woulnd tissue one to a 14 year old kid either...

    I'm NOT sure either JLA but I was think'in & that kinda poped into my mind
    (And it woulda made sence then why he was "Putting it off")
    Thats the only reason I said it.
    I dont know if they check Kids against Adults But I would think they would.

    Im with allot of others on this one tho a Better Relation with his Dad might be the key
    I had a pretty good one with mine BUT we had our moments!
    My Mom died when I was 11 so I was with him 24/7 ALLOT
    He rode my Azz as a kid but it was the "Tuff love" he just wanted me 2 be a good kid. (HATED it THEN---RESPECT it NOW) its how I raised mine LOL & NEVER expected another one @ age 43 BUT She keeps me Going!
    Shes Respectfull to others do'es good in school, even Volenteers in picking up the crap on our beachs & with me when I play Santa @ our local Boys & Girls club (I admit I have more fun then the KIDS doing that):D
    But when your 14 Dayum its a TUFF time Im Realy Impressed how many
    People have tryed to give the young man GOOD Info tho!
    And you know as I know when he started this thread he was talking about an AK for his First Weapon. NO WAY !!!
    Had I asked my Pops 4 an Assualt weapon as a Kid I think I woulda heard a Mouth full!
    BUT None of us know Him, his Dad, there Relationship Ect.....

    His DAD is looking out for HIS better Interests Like you do Yours, & I do mine.

    FUZE I have one of those tooo But mine Dont have it imbossed in the Stock
    Very Nice BUD
    Sorry about the Rant

    OK, I am really dumb it seems..you have to have this "foid" :eek:thingie to own a firearm? and it has to be renewed?:mad::mad: Please someone shoot me if I ever try to move there!!:bleh:

    One of my sons married a Canadian, very nice gal, he moved there cause she had a good job and he did'nt. He had to leave his shotgun and rifle with us. he still hasnt met the requirments to own even the .22 rifle there. he loves to hunt and misses being able to do so.

    that really has to SUCK big time!!
