Pre-rifle training for my son
My son is turning 5 on the 4th of July this year. I will be able to bring him to the shooting range with me!!!!! I really want him to be as safe as possible and 100% ready when his little feet hit the ground. I am making front and rear sight cutouts for him so that he can consistently show what a good sight looks like. I am drilling him on how to carry the rifle to and from the firing line. I am going over the basic parts of the rifle with him. I am doing my best to teach him firearms safety. In short, I want to completely take the mystery and fascination of the firearm away and have him look at this as a tool which, above all, must be respected and treated carefully.
Please, provide me with your experience in ways that you passed down this type of information with your kids. I have learned that, although experience is the best teacher, more often than not, it is still best to learn from others and their mistakes (God willing, no mistakes here)!
The natural state of man, the way G‑d created us, is to be happy.
