My oldest is aged out 😭 but my little girl will be able to go in a few more years 😝. I have a rule that you have to hold the gun and shoot by yourself before I take you to shoot one. I don't play the game of daddy holds the gun and aims and the kid pulls the trigger.

No Bipods or shooting sticks allowed?

How old is she? I asked my 7-year old this morning if she wanted to go. I expected her to say no because she flip flops a lot on hunting or shooting anything. Her eyes lit up and said yes I wanna go. It got my mind thinking but there's not enough time to get her a .410 or something similar and practice. I think she's probably a year or two away anyways but it got me thinking.
She is 8. I got her a stevens 301 turkey .410 last year and she used it to go squirrel hunting this past fall. I bought an ATI pistol grip stock for a New England single shot shotgun and modified it to fit her gun so that I could adjust the length of the stock. I don't know why they don't make a youth turkey model and I couldn't find a youth stock so this was my best option. If you are able to get to a sportsmans warehouse I think they have the 301s on sale right now.

They are. But I am talking about little baby jr sitting in my lap and just pulling the trigger why daddy does everything. Not in my house. You are going to carry, shoulder, aim, and pull the trigger by yourself or not at all.

I’ll help carry, but the rest of that is the same at ours.

Anyone who wants to borrow a 410 for Youth weekend and you can meet me somewhere close to Lexington, I’ll be glad to meet you this evening. That will give you tomorrow to get a few practice shots in. I got an American Tactical Nomad with a red/green dot on it. I’ve only shot it like 4 times. No I am not responsible for anything that may happen to your child because they were using my gun.🤦‍♂️
