    Dad was a WWII vet and had no interest in firearms but made no attempt to dissuade my interest. First real exposure to actual firearms was
    a firearms safety course at the local Sherriff Department range taught by a one armed Sherriff's Deputy. He shot some melons etc.. to demonstrate the destructive force. The impressions and lessons are with me to this day.

    My eldest who’s 23 tells me of conversations he’ll have with friends. Because of video games these kids think a gun is more “powerful” then another in the same caliber. Entertaining stuff to me I must admit but frustrating for him to have to explain.

    I was 12 when I got my Fire Arms Licence and I believe I was the youngest person to be issued one. There were Caveats like adult supervision etc. But it was my own license and my own guns. At 15 I owned a .22rf rifle with suppressor, a 9mm Browning 9mm, a S&W .357 526, a Walther PP and a Colt .45

    I then got a Shotgun license with a couple of guns and really enjoyed the hobby but it didn’t last. I joined the RAF at 18 as an Armourer and got to play with some good stuff and at the same time, hand in all my pistols due to legislation after Dunblane. It didn’t make sense to me really, let me play with big stuff at work but take my personal guns away as we’d all been tarred with the same brush and become unstable.

    Can a kid go to the range in the U.K with his/her father and shoot his guns and not have a license?
