I guess this begs the question.....what is the appropriate age to let yoyr kids accompany ypu or your family to the shooting range? I have taken my 3 and 5 yr olds out to Panoche hills when we go as a family. Granted they are away from the firing line, the line is taped off with red "danger" tape, and they both are required to wear eyes and ears when we have a live firing line. My 5 yr old usually gets a session or two with the daisy bb gun and hes good for the day. I haven't taken either to a public range basically because I'm there to shoot and not babysit. I have seen babies in arms (not armed) out at Los Altos gun club, but never near the line. Personally I wouldn't bring a child that small. But the world is full of 'different' parents.
