Kids are Great...especially when they grow up and marry!
In point of fact, I am DAMNED proud of the way we raised her. Proof is that her husband is the VERY first boyfriend of her's I ever liked, and she married him. Kid comes from great stock: His dad is retired 06 Naval Intelligence, personal buddy of Ollie North.

Kids Progreession with guns...
You know what worked great for me when my daughter was six? We made a game out of disassembling and cleaning and reassembling my guns when I got home from a match. She picked up on nomenclature real QUICK! She picked up on the three main rules of gun safety even quicker. She liked getting dirty with the gun crud so I let her help me clean certain parts of various weapons. I think I let her sit between my legs and hold the Ruger 10/22 WITH me as I fired some rounds so she could get used to the feel of it. This was when she was 7 or 8.
We kept that up until she was 10 and I started her off on my Ruger 10/22 rifle. Position, seated with her elbows braced on the insides of her knees. Rock solid position. Later on she went to the Ruger Super Single Six .22LR/.22WMR. Stayed with that before moving to my Browning Hi-Power 9mm and she discovered that all the moving steel of the slide and such was too much of a distractor. SO, she's a revolver gal. My wife OTOH, is a 1911 chick all the way!
That's fine by me. Since I gave the daughter my SP101, I now have an empty hook on my safeplace door. So I need a replacement. Don't think I want another SP101, so now I have decisions....decisions.....Ruger Alaskan 454/45LC? ParaOrd TAC-4 in the SpecOps finish? Sig P220 STS with SureFire X200 gunlight? Hmmmmmmm
