How old were you when you got your first weapon   ?

I was 6 when my dad gave me a tiny thumb length pocket knife and 12 when he gave me a .22 long rifle. 

I never hurt myself or anyone else so I don’t think I was too young but I know people who are appalled my parents gave me these things at a young age

    I don't need weapons.  I have myself, my intelligence, my two hands & feet & other bodily parts.  Since I was young, with these alone, I can & have inflicted serious damage to those fools who have tried to take advantage of me.  I do my "hunting" with a shopping cart.

    10 years old. My family moved to Alaska before it was a state. So roaming the wilderness I had to be prepared - knives, hatchet, 22 cal and/or shotgun in toe. And correct - I was trained so I never had a problem.

    I've really never HAD one.. A Weapon  is Designed or Used to kill, injure,intimidate, harass, deter a HUMAN Being. not a :"pocketknife"...

    I got a BB gun at 12, a .22 at 13. My Grandpa's .410 shotgun  at16.

    I got an Old Timer knife at 12, too.

    The ONLY serviceable  "weapon" I've had was two antique .32 black powder revolvers, which were really antiques/curios. Never got ammo for either.

    Besides that, two SKS'. One at 34, another at 54.Even then, Soviet army surplus.I used them ONLY to target shoot.

    I have a deactivated PPSh-43,an old Soviet sub machine gun.Still, i wouldn't  USE it to defend or  kill even if it fired. I see guys OC all the time in my town. Ive even fired automatics   ("machine guns" to YOU) Legally. at Marana: PPS-41, BAR, STEN, Maxim. Thompson M1A1 and Uzi at Vegas.

    Never received any weapon but I'm a girl. One time my dog Cuddles found a knife in a leather cover from underneath my bed...where my dad used to keep his stuff.

    Nothing wrong with any of that. Pocket knife at 8, shotgun at 12 or 13. But had access to guns before that, just none of my own.
