X2. At TMGN kids 10 and over can shoot under the supervision of a parent or legal guardian. No renting machine-guns until 21, period.

With proper supervision, at the AGC, age is not a factor.


LOL! I can remember taking handguns out to shoot at Whiteford Quarries, by myself, at 16

I have been taking my Grands since they were big enough to safely handle the firearm. Adding others as they grow. I start gun safety by 5-6 years old.

Is it allowed, or do they need to be 21?
thanks

I’ve brought my high school neighbor to the range before, with his parents’ permission. I made sure to share the lane with him the first time and still watch him like a hawk. He now has a membership at a local range. His dad, who works all over the world and is rarely home, bought them both memberships. So I take the kid.

Completely legal. Follow safety suggestions above and enjoy.

Additional suggestion: don't put anything with extreme recoil in their hands; avoid blowback centerfire handguns as 'first guns'

Best first handgun: single action .22 revolver. Slowly advance after that.

They may need a break from the ear muffs squeezing their heads, my kids do.

I taught a male friend in his late 30s who is really into the movies, to shoot handguns. He was very nervous. We went over muzzle awareness, indexing trigger finger, stance and grip with a range blue gun a couple of times. He settled down enough to be able to take instructions with the actual gun once in the range. Shoutgun and clays check; archery next; rifle to follow.

Occam, do you guys have to fill out paperwork at an outdoor range??
And, are you saying no standard silhouette targets?

It’s up to each range, how they handle that. Any range that’s open to the public is going to have a web site that at least mentions their policies in that regard.

On the silhouette-targets-for-noobs issue: my experience has been that, especially with younger folks, a positive first outing frequently results in them wanting to roll up a target they’ve ventilated and taking it home. And sometimes posting it on social media (great!). They’re more likely to do so, and share their experience, if the “I was shooting at human-like shapes” part is dialed down.

For kids, zombies are very popular.

But you can also order a very wide variety of some kid-friendly targets from bakertargets.com. balloons, zombie dinosaurs, zombie monsters, spiderweb, aliens, many more.
