I think this book would be ok for high school aged kids. I Don’t think I would recommend it for younger than that just because of the adult themes with guns and violence

I believe a young adult should be taught how to safely use a firearm for proper use such as hunting. I don't think it is appropriate to fill a child's mind with thoughts and ideas pertaining to the material found in this book. There are so many positive things to fill a young mind with. Killing others with guns is not one of them.

I wouldn't recommend this book for young children, but I think it would be appropriate for teenagers.

I read the book, and I personally don't see any reason why kids or at least teenagers shouldn't be allowed to read it. The book was informative to say the least.

As with all media generally thought of as adult-related or for mature audiences, I think with proper guidance and if the parent or guardian believes the lesson is one that the child can receive and analyse properly, then absolutely, yes. If you believe your child is too impressionable and easily led awry, I'm not sure it would be on the list of things one should introduce to them at that specific point in their lives.

I think this book would be okay for older kids, especially if it is accompanied by conversation with a parent. Younger kids shouldn't have to worry about stuff like this yet.
