The movie star, who was born in Oklahoma and raised in Missouri, told the Radio Times that he has had a lifelong relationship with firearms, including the fact that he inherited his first gun at a very young age.
“There’s a rite of passage where I grew up of inheriting your ancestors’ weapons,” Pitt said, according to The Independent. “My brother got my dad’s. I got my grandfather’s shotgun when I was kindergarten.”
Pitt also detailed his early history with guns, revealing that his very first gun was an air gun, followed by a shotgun he received at age 6. By the time he was 8, he had already fired a handgun.
