    He understands the rules, but not the consequences of not following them.
    This is the key. All kids are different, even in the same household. My older son (14) started at age 9; my younger son (now 9) is still too young, maturity-wise.

    My sons had Nerf guns from the time they could hold one. At five they got airsoft and at six BB guns. At eight a Ruger 10/22 which now they are bored with since they'd rather shoot my AR. To answer your question ....3yrs old it too young to be introduced to REAL firearms. Keep them put away till he's older. BTW good for you for stepping up when your fiance's family wouldnt. Being a father is the greatest thing ever!
