Am going to take my 3 yr. old daughter to the range in the next week. Only as observers. She has her hot pink hearing protectors.25dB. Nice warm jacket and Dad showing her the sound, feel and hopefully love the sport. She knows Dad goes shooting but she has never seen where I go. My wife might even like it. Thus meaning more hours on the range with the family. Wish me luck..Crossing fingers. With little ones, I think training begins way before shooting.
