Hi. Me and superchicken want to go shooting in the woods with my friend. We are both 18 but our friend isnt. Since we are the ones that own and are transporting the guns, is it ok for him to be shooting them with us? What about if they have a note from their parents and shit.

Taking a minor shooting is not a crime, however taking one shooting without parental consent can be considered contributing to the delinquency of a minor in some states. The parents would have to press charges.

I wouldn't expect any problems if you are shooting in a proper place(have permission) and follow all your safety guidlines. I've never had an issue with the law if they come up on me while shooting and I've had all my safety gear on and a proper fireing line and backstop.

No shit, good thing I left early with my son. That's all I need is the ex wife to see our son shoot up a pit with a G17 in hand.

Oh yeah as for minors, .....whatever I am drunk.
