    Welcome from Utah.

    You may want to take a firearm safety class either through your state via hunters safety course or through the NRA. These will be great beginner classes to familiarize yourself with the proper safe handling techniques with a firearm.

    Here are some links regarding safety classes that you can review:

    National Shooting Sports Foundation

    Washington Hunter Education and Safety Course

    NRA Education and Training

    Most of these courses are provided at a minimal cost.

    Welcome! You should really check out Cornered Cat | If you have to fight, fight like a cornered cat.. The blog author is a mom/firearms instructor, so the insight is genuine (Lima's another great resource who's already been mentioned).

    Here's an example of an article that might help: The First Lesson | Cornered Cat

    I've got my own wife reading these. Kids for us should be coming soon, and although she's fully supportive of guns in the home, she wants to be as safe as can be....which means "gun-proofing" the kids.

    Welcome from Fort Worth, Texas.

    Please educate your daughter on firearm safety...she needs to know what the gun looks like so she can identify it if/when she see it and she needs to know to never touch it (you will let her know later when it is ok for her to learn more about it but until that time she must know that under no circumstances is she to touch the gun). 5 year olds are very curious and they like to touch things and they need to be taught what they are allowed to touch and what they are forbidden to touch and they have to learn that there are severe consequences for touching something that is on the no touch list. Like a hot pot on the stove, she won't know that it is off limits until you teach her that it is off limits.

    When you show your daughter the gun identify it by saying something like; "this is Daddy's tool. Daddy's tool is very dangerous and Daddy's tool could hurt you. Remember when you got hurt doing ______? It will hurt a lot more than that so do not every touch Daddy's tool. If you touch Daddy's tool you will be punished...do you remember when you got punished for ________ well your punishment will be worse than that if you touch Daddy's tool...do you understand?"

    I would recommend not identifying it as a "gun" until you are certain she won't tell anyone that Mommy and Daddy have a gun...until then, Daddy's "tool" should be enough of an identifier.

    Also, do not ever get a pink gun for yourself while you have young children in the house. Pink guns will look like toys to your children and they might mistake the real gun for a toy.
