    My 12 year old son says yesterday "when can we go shoot?"

    The answer is soon, but he's got to be home to go and not running off with his friends when we have time to take him!

    My some met me at the door when I came from the range Saturday and was asking how old he has to be before he can go.

    He's a typical 6 year old so...told him when he can be calm and pay attention to what's going on around him.

    I'm not sure who's gonna have more trouble waiting for him to reach that level, me or him.

    I started taking my son at 7
    At first you have to be super patient with them and expect to not stay long
    Once the attention span maxs out you need to be prepared to leave early
    If you stay past that and then have to start dealing with them and getting onto them it makes it a bad experience for them

    My daughter started at 4 (at the house) and did very well.

    My son has shot a couple times at the house but only on days when he was abnormally chilled out.

    When he's ready he'll be there, but the attention span is the big limiter to taking him any distance to go to a range. At the house it's about 10 minutes before he's more interested in playing on the berm, lol.

    Well... I told my seventeen year old whom I barely see (college plus SOCIAL TIME plus busboy job) that I wanted to go shoot at the range with him tomorrow. Let's see if I can pry him away from social activities to spend a little range time with good old mom. He said that he would.
