My 3-Year-Old Wanted to see My Guns!

I was so proud of her!!!!

She just asked me out of the blue if she could see them and so I opened the safe. I pointed out a few and now she knows which one is the Ruger, which is the Glock and which ones are AK-47s

At what age did your kids show an interest?

Naturally, I had to take a couple pics:

I'm a very proud daddy!

She is very cute.

My first memory of a gun was about 5 years old. The guy who lived accorss the street showed me some rifles and fired one in the ground. He gave me the empty case.

Probably wise that you showed her... No curiosity, and if she ever wonders in the future, asking daddy gets what she wants; she won't have to go find them herself. Good job.

Love it! Those pics are an anti-gunner's nightmare!

My son is 7 and I always let him hold guns when he asked. But now when I ask him, he says, "do I gotta wash my hands afterwards?" I say yes, and he says "no thanks"

He could safely handle a firearm in his late 4's LOL. He has his own Ruger Bearcat and is very safe and handling them. Safety is first (as it should be) We have Eddie Eagle comic books around the house. He's 7 now and a very good shot.

Now my 4yo is a different story. She still doesn't quite understand the danger of firearms.

Cute pics bro.

What he said.

From my earliest memory, I always knew that when i asked daddy, he would show me his firearms and let me handle them under his supervision.

I also knew what would happen if I touched them without his supervision or approval.

Thanks everyone:-)

She didn't want to hold the Chinese AK, she wanted me to hold it, so I did. I won't push her but I sure hope she keeps getting more and more interested as she gets older.

Yep. Let her look. Make time to show the kids so they are not overly curious. I let my kids look and handle guns pretty much whenever they ask. They are of course learning safe gun handling at the same time.
