So my wife is currently 23 weeks pregnant and we are very interested in raising our child to be a responsible person around firearms. So I guess my question is.....how were you raised and what tips do you have to ensure the safety of your family around guns? Personally, my family has pictures of me shooting high power rifle at 5 years old. I was always supervised and safety was #1 before any shots were fired. I was hunting by age 11 and killed my first deer when I was 13. By 16, I was hunting on my own with my family in the area to assist if needed. My family never introduced me to competitive shooting, but now that my wife and I are competing, we would love to share that with our child in the future. At our most recent USPSA match we had 12 year olds shooting in our group. It was amazing at how focused the were on safety and technique. These young men even ran some stages, keeping score and running the clock. It was very neat to see. I've read Massad's book a few times and it is pretty solid...But I would love to know if there is any other books I can pick up on the subject. Thanks. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
