My daughter did it at 8 years old as well.  Her reading comprehension and maturity was pretty high at that age.  The instructor was excellent.  I made it a point to make sure she attended the classes, and did not do the online course.  I kept her on turkey and grouse the first year and a half.  She is 10 and started on big game this year.  She will probably be 12 or 13 before I let her swing a shotgun on birds on the wing.

My son is 8 and just passed. Parents could not even sit by there kids in class, because it was full. A teenaged girl, who slept through most of the class, and could not identify any gun, got a 58%, still passed. My son and most others paid attention, and studied. Kind of a slap in the face.

How does a 58 percent pass?  I thought it had to be 70, which is still too low IMO.

I'm sorry some had a bad experience at Tacoma sportsman's club.  My daughter took her class there at  11, three years ago.  I thought the class was great and the instructors were fantastic.

What?  Our class this year was 70% to pass, how can 58 be considered passing?

I think it is 60 out 75 questions is passing for the traditional class.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.

Yes 60 out of 75 is passing, but some teachers will go over the wrong answers with the students. Then they pass.

That makes more sense, that is an 80%.  Still shouldn't pass them if they got the answer wrong originally though, that would not have flown when I was an instructor....
