i wish it was like the old days were you would learn to shoot way before your pops .56 spencer carbine stopped nocking you flat on your butt.you had to know how to shoot.heck, kids were helping in cattle drives by the time the were 12.you guys are talkin' about picking up a gun for the first time at that age.

u should get them hooked as soon as possible. my little cuz was 5 when he first went hunting and is constantly begging to be takin again he loves it. they dont have to shoot just take them a couple of times. and see how they like it. u may have to wait a couple of years based on the maturity of the kid. good luck n let us know if you need more help

As soon as they pop out start taking them hunting.

As far as carrying or taking a weapon, start small...I'd say around 8-10 once they can understand the responsibility it takes handling a weapon. Give em a bb gun or something. Later on, once they prove to you they're responsible, up the gun to a shotgun or something. Then when they are 16 and on their own, they can go hunting by themselves without you around.
