You don't have to have kids to love 'em, or at least to care about their safety.

I hope the OP figures out that we are right before he finds some idiot to tell him how to do a trigger job.
AMEN, brother on that last part.

my father drilled gun safety into my brother and i from a young age. i teach my wife now. gun safety is something i have always taken seriously. much thanks to my father for that.

How many of you have been shooting since you were her age? Did you start with a loose triggered semi auto? Didnt think so. I wish when people bought guns they had to prove they were intelligent.

Started at her age? Yes. Semi auto? Yes. Loose trigger? No. It was a bone stock Remington nylon 66 w a scope of some descriminate breed.

Not a rant mon ami. For me it was a SEMI AUTO RIFLE. That has a bad trigger.

I was raised in a no-guns household so I was self-taught from about age 15 or thereabouts. I did a lot of dangerous things teaching myself, but fortunately nobody ever got shot in the process. My wife was raised around guns and learned to shoot at a young age (not sure exactly how old she was though). We have raised our sons to be gun-safe since they first became self-aware (pretty much the Eddie Eagle program) with the promise that when they were old enough they would be taught how to handle guns. When my wife and I agreed they were old enough (6 or 7 years old, Mom wanted to wait longer and I thought they were ready younger) I printed out the NRA firearms safety list and told them when they had it memorized then they could start handling guns. That took only a few weeks before they had it nailed and we were off to the range.

I was quite serious when I said they are more strict on gun safety than I am, but I never give them that "do what I say, not what I do" stuff. If they catch me and correct me I do as they say, so far they have always been right, nothing major or dangerous though. Things like accepting a gun without checking it is empty and safe after they have already handled it and I saw them make it safe (part of the training). They do make me proud!

With a rifle thats much more understandable. My grandpa has a savage pump .22 from 1914 at 100yards it still puts every round in a half dollar coin. Thats what i started with. I still squirrel hunt. Amazing gun

My sons started at 6 or 7 with a single-shot bolt-action Remington that was cut down for kids (forget the model #). It has a pretty heavy trigger. Then they went to a revolver (crappy old Rohm) and after awhile it was a semi-auto Ruger .22/45 with a heavy trigger. The first shotgun was a Stevens bolt action 410 then a 20 gauge.

Now that they are 14 and 16 they are shooting everything that I own, except for the Ruger .454 Casull Super Redhawk.

I think that is a pretty good progression.
