    It sounds more like it was an exercise in putting your imagination to work as a kid and your parents saw value in that. The risks are always there but the learning value is irreplaceable.

    I have that opportunity on the farm everyday. Several current day inventions were created on the farm out of necessity. Have made a few myself. Thinking outside the box.

    "I couldn't have put my foot on the moon without going outside the box".- Believe it and it can happen. My relatives were part of that and I suppose so was I.

    In my 57 years I have seen many things happen with a BB gun. I still bought my sons one. It since has helped keep them alive and well. Gotta learn to protect your eyes sometime! - or hands, or back of the head (paintballs), or butt, or even your heart (romance). All of it can be lethal .

    Learning not to be reckless is a biggy if the parents would just teach it - if they can.

    Some have to learn the hard way anyway but better with a play gun than a real one. Sling shots have their value as well. Tazers?- well I no longer have to stick my fingers in the wall socket to figure that one out.
