"I highly suggest that if you have children you teach them weapons safety and take them shooting. It makes a great day with your kids. It also gives you the piece of mind that they understand the weapons are not toys and there will be none of the sneaking around curiosity because you take the time to properly train your kids and do not make the weapons "Taboo"."
Amen to this!
This worked so well for us and our two sons. There was never a time when they did any of that sneaking around.
Besides, sounds like you had fun.
