Rifle Shooting For Boys And Girls (1957)

A comic book put out by Winchester in 1957, outlines safety rules, and some fun ideas.

Most of the material is still relevant today, except for on page 9:

Something tells me that wouldn’t go over well today… wow times have changed.

    Was thinking about starting a skeet club at school. Only problem is that they have allow students to start “dangerous” clubs. Normally I’d object to the idea that guns are dangerous; they aren’t if you follow the four rules of safety and take care of your gun. It gets dangerous when all the Call of Duty kiddies get ahold of guns. That, and all the ambiguous, poorly-written complexities and nuances of Commiefornia laws make the legality of shooting difficult to ascertain.

    Also, is it just me, or does the kid on page 9 have horrible trigger discipline?

      I’d be blown away if they let you start a skeet club at a California school! I agree, letting kids that have played video games too much around real weapons is a recipe for disaster.

      You’re right, that boy has terrible trigger discipline! Maybe trigger discipline wasn’t invented before 1957 :P

    And yet, just over the border, is what is perhaps the only high-power rifle club in a US public school:

      Whaaaaaaaat? That’s awesome! Nice to see that girls are involved too.

  3. Nice trigger control there, son… something tells me it won’t be taught indoors for long!

  4. Is this comic book worth anything? I have one that has never been used.
