I happened to run across a 50lb pistol grip arrow at the flea market recently and thought it might make for a good start in lessons on weapons for my 7 year old boy. I've never used one, and I'm wondering if he, or I, will even have enough strength to load it. Hubby was using a bow and arrow at 6 years old. His uncle took him rabbit hunting, and he's said that he thinks his uncle took him for rabbits rather than to a range with a target, to teach him that weapons do kill. Any suggestions, opinions?
