Brad Pitt became a gun owner at the tender age of six.
The Ocean’s Eleven star who was born in Oklahoma and raised in Missouri reveals he started with an air gun and was soon upgraded to a shotgun which he inherited from his grandfather. He fired his first handgun at just eight years old and Pitt claims growing up with weapons has taught him to be responsible with guns. The newlywed who shares six kids with wife Angelina Jolie tells, “There’s a rite of passage where I grew up of inheriting your ancestors’ weapons”. My brother got my dad’s. I got my grandfather’s shotgun when I was in kindergarten… “The positive is that my father instilled in me a profound and deep respect for the weapon.”
