Gun range offering birthday parties for kids

    WFAA report on a new Dallas shooting range that plan on hosting parties for kids …

    Eagle Gun Range will host birthday parties for kids.

    “One of the reasons we’re doing this is, when I had my boys, I didn’t have a place to take them and educate them about how to handle a gun safely,” Prince explained. “I really want families to be able to take their kids here and teach their young shooters how to shoot safely.”

    Two rooms will be available for birthday parties.

    “The age limit is eight years old. You have to be tall enough to get above the shooting table,” Prince said. “They’re not gonna be left unattended. Parents are gonna be one-on-one, or if there’s not enough parents we’ll have range safety officers here to show them how to do it safely.”

    It is nice to see a positive article in the mainstream media on kids and shooting.

    Personally if I was the range owner, from my own experience, I would not let an adult without any gun experience supervise a child who has no experience.
