I was invited to teach a brief 1/2 hour gun safety class to the 3rd/4th graders and another 1/2 hour for the 5th/6th graders at our local elementary school. I was surprised that the school reached out to me to teach the class. I think it's great that they made the decision themselves that firearm safety is important enough to seek someone out to bring information to the kids.
The best part is that out of roughly 40 kids, only three claimed to never have fired a gun. I was moderately amazed by that. I figured that there would be more. Having that many kids already shooting is a great thing. The 5th and 6th graders were the best. They all showed a genuine interest in hunting and shooting. Looks like my next hunter ed class is going to fill up fast Even had a 6th grader telling me all about the AR-15 he's building up with his dad.
