My son is 6 years old and he seems to be showing interest in going to the range with me. I recently purchased a Marlin Model 60 and I'd love to take him to a WMA range with me. Does anyone know if this is OK to do? I can't seem to find any information on this anywhere.

Well, my daughter came with me to the range at Flatbrook when she was 7. My other daughter is 9. I think its a matter of direct supervision and control. That and u need a current hunting license I believe. I don't have any direct knowledge of rules against it and wouldn't think there is any. Just a matter of having control over them.

The child can be there as a guest of a license holder, but no age limit.

Eye and ear protection is required too. Oh and if Sweeny's bill becomes law, your model 60 will be considered an assault weapon and you will be a felon. Overnight, no amnesty period.

I took my son at five. He learned safety quickly and even hit a spinner target with his 22. Just keep safety paramount. Taught to keep the rabbit ears which is rear sight even with the rabbits nose which is front sight lol. Worked well. Good luck

I heard about that. Who votes for this guy? I'm tired of all these politicians, especially the liberal kind.

That's a great analogy. I will use it with my son. Thanks!
