If you ask him what he wants to do when he grows up it make guns. He would rather watch hunting and fishing shows then cartoons, and would rather be outside then playing video games. I think he's on the right track.
I say good for you!!!!! My daughter is on the same path and I'm prouder than punch of her, she'll start shooting in 4H when she's 8 yrs which will be about a year and a half. She handles her own fire arm from safe to bench, and I've had ZERO complaints from anyone that she is on the range and most of the guys are out helping her and encouraging her, she's not allowed to shoot by her self yet but with an adult by her to coach her if needed she's GTG, her gun handling and safety is better than 90% of the adults at our local range.
I'm going to build her first centerfire with a brake and recoil reduction!!
Way to raise your son, something to take pride in and dang right he's on the right track due to you being an involved and interested father!!!!
