Why not? As long as they're safe.
I worked the Area 7 Championship and saw a very young shooter there (9?) he was shooting safely and was darn good. He needed a booster step to reach some of the ports, but that was no big deal.

They can definitely learn to handle firearms safely. Close supervision is necessary, but how else are they going to learn?

Society today thinks kids are helpless and refuse to give them credit enough that they can indeed learn skills such as safe weapons handling. These midgets and I spend hours at home doing weapons drills and situation training for obstacles that may incur muzzle calls and safety concerns.
The video didnt show it well, but that little 6yo one, when she was running the pistol, her finger came out of the trigger guard after every shot - she knows the score on trigger discipline already and made a habit of it.

Taught mine at age 5, daughter and son, and never had to lock up ammo or firearms. Both of them are teaching my grand kids to shoot and respect firearms also. Its not the age it's the degree of maturity, discipline and respect.
