Saturday I'm taking my 12 year old to the range for his first time. The wife is not happy about this. I gave him his first lesson tonight, and she has a horrible look on her face. She's probably going to fuck a black guy. Phone Post 3.0

My mom didnt like when I was taught to shoot, or build fires or use a knife, or punch and kick other kids etc etc...

Sometimes you just have to tell women that this is stuff men need to learn and that they need to stay out of it if they arent going to be supportive.

Not her, but coincidentally that's what I told my buddies at work. He's a good kid, but not as active as I'd like. Phone Post 3.0

My wife and I have been having these discussions since before my son was born. He is 2 now, and it still comes up occasionally. But I'm wearing her down.

I start with a hard bargain, saying I'll take him shooting when he is 8, she says never, then I say maybe 9, she says 16, we settle somewhere around 14. Then, when we've got that deal done, I say that was for real shooting, obviously BB guns and air rifles would need to start way earlier as a safety precaution before the real thing.

I let her win most arguments, but I'm not going to negotiate much when it comes to father/son activities.

Kids that know how to handle guns don't accidentally shoot their friends.

I don't care if my son is gay, but he's not going to be a sissy.

My 3 year old daughter is interested in guns. She told me when she gets bigger she gets to shoot the little gun. Damn straight killer. My wife is okay with this. It is part or our safety training. We talk about firearms, who can touch them, what to do if she finds one, etc... Fire arms exist and kids need to learn about them. 12 is a bit late for shooting. 8 is a better starting age.

V/U for all, even the guy bringing the hard truth. Tonights lesson was strictly clearing and placing a weapon on safe. He put his finger on the trigger a couple times and I moved out of "dad" mode. Phone Post 3.0

If you own a gun the decision is already made imo. If you're wife is telling you ti wait until the kid is 16 or never or whatever then that would be the height of irresponsibility. He needs to learn to respect guns and part of that is knowing how they work, what parts not to point at people etc.

If you don't own a gun and want to use the "don't touch it run away" that's fine. But the kid won't wait for you before he meddles with it, better to be proactive rather than reactive. 8 or 9 is plenty old. My 5 year old has taken a couple of shots with the pellet gun. Phone Post 3.0
