I am not a parent, but my best friends son is 4. He is basically a nephew to me.
Both his father and I feel he is wayyy to young to shoot, but we're going to the Patton Museum soon and will probably be stopping by my range and gun shop (Knob Creek) on the way home.
Is there anything I can impart to the boy on what shooting is all about at that age?
Is it worth making a distinction between the usual "don't touch" and "this is a gun, really don't touch" at that age?
Any thoughts on not letting him see dad and I handle firearms at the shop for fear that he'd want to emulate us?
I guess the short version is, I'm not a father, but I am a responsible figure to a few youngins. What can I do to be a positive influence regarding firearms to the kids in my family?
