undefinedEddie Eagle's message was delivered to Isaac Hunter Rathner-a 14-year-old high school freshman-multiple times from the age of 4 to 7. His gun-owning parents supplemented that education with constant reminders after he got behind his first trigger, in this case, that of a .22 LR Henry Mini Bolt when he was six. Those lessons continue to this day, despite the fact he's experienced enough to shoot his father's suppressed pistol (as seen in the above photo).
