Dads are the worst driving instructors as well.

Nope, dads make the worst driving instructors and people should seek professional instruction whether it's guns or cars. Obviously, I'm a gun enthusiast, I've actually made my own Title II firearms under my company name, I've collected and shot many different types of firearms over my 32 years of serious involvement in my hobby and right to bear arms. My associates and friends know this and I don't mind taking them out to the rang for a little familiarization shooting, but I always promote that if the non-initiated chooses to enter owning their own firearms that they seek out highly proficient, professional and certified range instructors.

Such a blanket statement is wrong. Some dads would be the worst driving instructors, some dads wouldn’t be the best choice to teach their sons firearms safety.

Would you also be the worst shooting instructor for your son, if you had one?

Did you receive "training from a highly proficient professional and certified range instructor" with your first gun? When you go to the range now to "familiarize" with a gun now do you take an instructor with you to train you? It's a gun (simple point and click interface) not brain surgery. The operation of a car is 10x more complicated and deadly than a gun yet any yahoo idiot can get a license to drive. Even with great training many car owners are still idiots on the road. Training is always a wonderful thing but never a substitute for hands on. A father may be more intense when teaching a child to drive but that's because they care, an instructor is there to just get you in and out so he can get paid. To bad training is not required for idiots who vote.

At this point it may be wise to tap a friend that’s an avid current shooter to help train your grandson when that time comes. If it’s been decades allow fresher wisdom to prevail.
The range I use is perfect for new shooters. They’re very strict with rules. Even the members will say something to non-compliant shooters. The perfect environment to learn safety rules. I’m sure there is a comparable range in your area.
Actually no - if he's going to shoot my guns, I will train him. I have land upstate - no need for a range. By the time he's old enough to own one, he'll have had more training than most.
