Default Firearms training near Palo Alto, CA?

I have an 11-year-old son who has begun to show an interest in learning how to use and maintain firearms responsibly. I would like to train him to use and maintain a rifle and a shotgun, but I do not feel equipped to properly train him myself. I own both a rifle and a shotgun, but I am hoping there is someplace near my home in Palo Alto where I can take him so that both of us can go over the basics of firearm safety. Can anyone suggest a place for this?

Bill Tidwell teaches NRA First steps classes for handgun, rifle, and shotgun at Reed's in Santa Clara. Highly recommended for a good basic introduction to those guns.

The classes don't really cover maintenance much but you can get that info just from reading the manual and watching a few YouTube videos.
