Shooting is a great activity for young people It is Testing rewarding exciting requires a cool head and self-discipline.
What age? I think more a case of Size or strength; I believe 10 to 12 years is early enough. To start shotgun shooting, you require enough upper body strength to handle the gun effectively and obviously a small gun I recommend a 28 bore cut down to size as a starter gun, I have a small 28 bore at the school for use on lessons. The 410 were very popular for youngsters as it is very light but it is very limited in use and very testing to shoot consistently.
Younger than 10 can shoot with assistance and have excellent hand eye coordination but have rarely got the strength to handle the gun and have not got the necessary concentration to shoot consistently. I don’t think it is good to start too young.
