I have two kids. My son is 11 and my daughter is 14. They are the best kids in the known universe. They are smart and healthy and happy. They are excellent students. They can also repeat the FOUR RULES on demand:
- Treat every firearm as if it is loaded
- Never point a firearm at anything you are not willing to destroy.
- Never put your finger on the trigger until you are ready to fire.
- Always know your target and what's behind it.
My son loves to shoot. We in fact are going to the range this weekend! My daughter couldn't care less. She's gone to shoot with me a couple times because she (we) thought it was important to learn how to safely handle firearms.
--I am a very lucky man.
