My son shot my 22 for the first time (with assistance) when he was about 18 months old. Of course, he thought the little things flying out the side were where all the fun was but he wants to go with me every time now.
There is no too young. It's all on you as the parent. Keep them safe, be responsible, no exceptions EVER. Teach them more and let them have more responsibility as they get older and show that they are prepared.
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.
The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
He is no fool who gives what he can not keep to gain what he can not lose.
