I totally agree with this. Depends highly on the child, one cannot assume any specific age to apply to all children as to when they can safely and maturely handle firearms for recreational shooting purposes, even with direct parent/adult supervision present with them. Safety first, always.
I would say earliest for my future children would be 5 or 6 years old, depending on their competency and understanding of the world around them, and not being 'out of it' for the dangers that firearms pose with misuse.
