  •  Experienced parents? (3+ / 0-)

    Yes, under limited circumstances, one on one, outdoors. Away from the house and other people/kids.

    I grew up with guns. Both parents were experienced and could teach and model safe handling/use/cleaning.

    It takes a long time to develop good habits, the muscle memory and automatic attention to where the open end of the barrel is pointing at all times.

    There was a diary some months ago. Experienced gun owner took his kids camping/hunting. Two kids, himself, loaded gun, inside the tent. Gun ent off. During the night, IIRC. Luckily no one was hurt. I'm sure that guy was/is a very careful hunter. Setting up camp + kids + gun was more than he could manage that day.
