Kids grow when they are given opportunities to grow. After some discussions with my wife and in-laws, we decided my son should learn basic gun safety, and that’s a dad’s responsibility. Papa lent his .22 rifle to us for the afternoon. RULE #1 Always clear the chamber. “Never give or receive a firearm unless the chamber is open and clear, son.”

There are many deeply-felt concerns when working with kids and firearm safety, and they all came to mind. Since we live in a state that’s popular for hunting, we thought we would get good habits in his head early. It’s better to learn good habits than to pretend there aren’t any problems.
