I have a 14 year old son wants to try IPSC. He is been to a hunter safety class and been hunting with me so he knows how handle a firearm safely.

Is he old enough to do it?

Thanks,

ASR

My 12 year old little brother managed to give me a whoopin at a match today. Shooting a Glock. With 10rd mags. Against my Para with hi caps. I'm not gonna hear the end of this one for a while......

My 14 year old daughter shot at the local steel shoots last summer. We had some new guys, including a few LEO's who never showed up again after she beat 'em a few times.

MY SON STARTED WHEN HE WAS 10. HE HAD HUNTED BEFORE. HE STARTED WITH A HI-STANDARD 22. HE MOVED UP THROUGH A 380 TO A S&W MOD. 3914-9MM. HE SHOT THIS FOR A YEAR (TOTAL TIME A YEAR AN A HALF). AT 12 HE NOW SHOOTS A PARA-45. HE IS MM IN IDPA, AND "D" IN IPSC.

THE 45 TOOK A WHILE TO "MASTER", HIS SCORES PLUMMETED FOR AWHILE.
BOTH IDPA, AND IPSC WILL LET THEM SHOOT, AND BE MEMBERS, PROVIDED THE PARENT AUTHORIZES IT,AND STAYS WITH THEM DURING THE FIRST FEW MATCHES. (RIGHT BEHIND THEM)
