Does Colorado have a youth hunt day? Around here rifle opens a day or two early if you are under 18 or 16 er something. Nothing like getting in the woods with your Dad at the beginning of hunting season and bagging a big buck before any of the adults have had a chance. You always see some very impressive kills in the newspaper during the youth hunt.

Ultimately if you are wanting to work on protection and use of deadly force, it's good to know that your little one can and will dispatch a big handsome deer. If they can kill for food they surely will kill to save family from harm.

What does your kid need protection from? I think a better lesson is not to be paranoid.

Agreed. I certainly feel like I want more protections from gun toting hunters in the woods than anything else....
Please take a look at my Photo Web Gallery.
I also have here some gear reviews (that I might update soon).

Do your child a big favor. Make sure he/she is educated in at least one written language.

We allowed our girls to have a small pocket knife to whittle, and slingshots for target practice. Gives them something to do and teaches them a little body awareness. They were probably 10-ish. Our older now likes to shoot guns; she's 17.

She's a vegetarian and doesn't want to kill anything. She just likes guns.

I'm a little confused by your post, a bit short on specifics. Are you asking about others experience teaching their kids about weapons and self defense? What does mountain arms, and mountain ways mean? Sadly, when I think of mountain ways I think of the movie Deliverance. As a lifelong shooter and father of 2 I would be happy to relay my experiences but give me a little more detail here.

Make sure you are properly trained yourself first, before attempting to teach others.
I have 2 daughters that are expert gardeners, fly fishing women, hunters and have been professionally trained as have I in the proper use, handling and storage of weapons. They have their CC permits now that they are old enough. They and their children are safer and more likely to survive comfortably come what may then 99% of the USA population IMHO. I get the benefit of having a family that loves to camp, fish, hunt and Raft with me. Who could ask for anything more.
This thread should fire up the PC police.
