Charlotte-area class offers gun training for kids as young as 6
A Charlotte-area instructor teaching kids to fire guns says he’s surprised anyone opposes the idea.
Michael Pegram, a firearm trainer, is offering gun training classes to children as young as six, and he said it’s all about safety.
“There was no other class like this,” Pegram said. “So I decided to come up with it.”
Aiden, age 9, is a graduate from one of Pegram’s gun safety classes near Mint Hill.
“It’s the parent’s choice of what their kids should be around,” Pegram said. “I’m just offering a class to let them learn to be safe if they’re going to be around [guns].”
