I take my boys to the range but only outdoors. Not to an indoor facility. If they are there, I'm not shooting at all. I'm 100% dedicated to whichever boy is shooting. I feel like they are old enough to be there when they can take it seriously (safety), stop on a dime (safety), fit into eyes and ears properly (safety), and can refrain from putting their fingers and other objects in their mouths (safety/lead poisoning). There is a trend there.
Good on you, we need more responsible gun owners/parents like you.

Are you the type that walks up to a parent at McDonalds and stops them from feeding the kid french fries?
I remember watching that video from China a few months ago where a young child got hit by a vehicle and was laying on the ground hurt while many people just walked by her. You sound like you would do the same thing.
