How old were your kids when you taught them gun safety?

My kids have been around rifles since they were little, but handguns didn’t enter the picture until they were approaching double digits. They learned to shoot right after I did - I wanted them to be safe with and know how to use handguns if they were in our home.

What age did you teach your kids about firearm safety? Did you teach them to shoot at the same time?

Started talking about that guns aren’t toys around 3 and a half. Had him shooting a rifle at 5. We’re stepping up to a 20 gauge, and maybe some .38 special this year, since he’ll be 10.

Time to add the next step of teaching the great grandbaby… she just turned 6 and is starting to take an interest in her moms shooting practice. As shes learning to read, one of her practice items is the 4 safety rules.
