Knowing the right time for your child to learn to shoot is different for every child. I have never been a hunter, but I do love the shooting sports and also learning how to use firearms for self defense.
I have never pushed Jack into wanting to shoot…he has always played with toy guns and bow and arrows and he was taught from a early age the respect you give firearms. We have used the NRA’s Eddie Eagle program to teach Jack what to do if you see a firearm.
So we felt that Jack was responsible enough now to learn how to shoot and so today we headed to Templar Indoor Range with a .22 Ruger pistol and a ATI GSG-5 rifle.
We had a great time and Jack wasn’t nervous at all. Jack is a lefty like me so it was easier to teach him than what I thought it would be…
