A video posted by Viral Hog is, well – going viral, and so are the responses to the unique family fun featured in it.

“I was practicing drawing from holster and dry fire drills and she decided to join in,” the dad said of the video.

As he was practicing in their family home, this hands-on daddy thought taking a video of the adorable (and educational) bonding experience he and his daughter were enjoying would be cute. And it really is…

Melody Lauer of Ballistic Radio and director of training for Citizens Defense Research said she hopes the video will begin a conversation on why guns should be introduced to children at a young age and kids need to be properly educated.

“To people who don’t understand firearms, seeing a video of a child seemingly ‘playing’ with a gun can be alarming, and if done negligently or carelessly, it can be devastating,” Lauer said. “What they are not seeing in this video, however, is the care with which the father is going through to positively educate that child on the tenets of safe firearms handling. Her gun is a inert training aid. He instructs her on where she should and should not point it. He also models this good behavior for her by being consistent in his own handling in the video.”

Lauer, who teaches a Contextual Handgun Course for Armed Parents/Guardians, went on to say, “Studies have shown us that early education and positive exposure to firearms reduces the risk of firearms-related accidents in children. If this family is going to have a gun in their home—as clearly they do—this father is doing is the most responsible thing for his child by educating her and modeling positive gun handling for her.”
