From time to time I run across an article or some proud parent's video of one of these kids--and some are scary good!

What stands out when you meet one is that they are invariably polite and courteous. Well-mannered, and fully aware of the priciples and rules of firearms safety.

In gun control, pay attention to how well she controls her guns :D
Is there any practical benefit other than on the range?

Can you cite any reputable source that indicates this training will increase her likelihood to store her guns safely or to be less at risk for accident, suicide or homicide?

Sorry if I sounded angry, but I meant he message behind it. Everybody who posts a gun thread has an agenda. There's not a single thread about guns that isn't posted for a reason.

The little girl has served as range officer & advocates proper firearm safety, that & she is one hell of a shot, the "agenda" is SAFETY. Something that personally need to pay a bit more attention

Yes, people should be safe with their guns if they get them.

I don't think anyone will argue that they shouldn't be safe and get training for their guns.

A point? How about the idea that beginning the teaching of a subject at a young age is a good thing? When it involves deadly weapons, the absence of proper teaching and training can lead to danger to others.

The scariest thing at a deer camp is a 24-year-old guy on his first hunt with his first rifle. A teeny-bopper with several years of experience in shooting is just another member of the group.

See video above, it is sad to say that some morons who want to get a cheap laugh will hand an unsuspecting person a firearm that they can't handle just to see them get hurt , those morons piss me off

Yes. Seriously.

Can you cite any reputable sources than show training—such as in your OP—increases the likelihood of that person storing their firearms more safely or being at less risk for firearm related accidents, injury, suicide or homicide?

For hunting, sure.

I don't think anyone here is against people learning how to use hunting rifles.

Can't speak about if proper training decreases suicide or homicide, but are you really saying proper training and storage doesn't prevent accidents? It should be a given that it does.

You're the person who said hunting. I shouldn't have put rifles.
