Default new godson on the way,...present idea

So one of my good buddies is having their first child and my wife and I are lucky enough to be named the godparents. My buddy and i are long time friends and spend the majority of our time either on a boat or in a deerstand. I am having a custom O/U 410-22 made for dad to put in the safe and let it be the little guys first gun when he starts coming out to the property with his dad. I am thinking of a slogan or saying to have engraved on the barrell. So far all i have is "dont shoot your eye out kid" Please help me out with something better to have engraved.

note: to the lurkers that know me, DONT tell TD about this, its a suprise the wife and I are doing.

I actually think the boys name and birtdate would be perfect. maybe the name of the property (if it has one)

good ida CJD however i am planning on giving it to him prior to the birth of the boy so the birthdate cant work, and the property is spread out all across the state so without a central location, cant do that.

Several families with Scottish/English/Irish (and I assume many others) backgrounds have mottos.

Maybe you go with the year of his birth. In giving the gift (and it is a fantastic one BTW) I would think about what you might want it to mean when he gives it to his son. Think like you are creating a family heirloom. Just my thoughts.

You could always have in engraved after the birth. As for location, thats a tough one. maybe your family name as well?
