Everybody in my family knows how to shoot. My nephew is only 13 now and he has been shooting since he was 9. Hope to get him this summer to do some more shoot and I know he wants to go hurting sometime to. Hope I can do this since I'm in KY and he is in IN..

I'm trying

But I think my eagerness to teach my son outweighs his physical capacity to learn and perform. He's only a year and a half old.

Hell yes everybody in my house knows how to shoot and do it safely. My little girl is only three and a half and she has better gun safety then most guys I see at the firing range. I taught her by the time she was two how to clear my AR15. When she wants to shoot or even handle one of my firearms she askes. I have gotten much greif from people for teaching her so early, but I say the younger the better. As long as the child understands what the firearm is for then teach them. I beleive that the kids that accidently shoot a play mate are the ones thats parents made firearms a secret thing that the kid wants to sneak and find out what they are. Just like when Dad hid all his Playboys and you had to find them to see what they were.

Ryo think maybe you right, because pops never keep weapons secret. But even Ryo younger brother's weapons are kept in gun room in house behind lock 3 inch solid oak door. Both self and younger brother taught from very young age that weapon is tool for sport or combat or hunting and is not toy. Ryo think you good father like Ryo own pops. Luck to you and family in future.

Your friend,

Me too

My late husband used to shoot and shot on a US team at a local USAF base in Cambridgeshire UK in the 1970's. He died before he could teach the eldest boy (22 now) to start shooting so I did and he's not bad. He enjoyed it a lot and did sports shooting for a while in Peterborough but here in Ireland the clubs are restrictive in their membership. I would love to teach my youngest when I can as he is straining at the leash to learn, that's why I taught him to use a Tonfa which helps with reflexes, balance and co-ordination.
