There are three golden rules to shooting that should never be broken. One, always keep the gun pointed in a safe direction; two, always keep your finger off the trigger until ready to fire; and three, always keep the gun unloaded until ready to use. There is apparently no rule that states "Do not give a gun to a child who is barely old enough to attend school, let alone understand the permanence of death." And thus, Miko Andres' father, in a bold display of progressive parenting, decided to get Miko involved with the sport of professional shooting at the age of 6.
"So these things are full of candy, right?"
Miko is the youngest practical shooter ever, possessing an uncanny amount of natural ability that allows him to dominate his bracket, which includes competitors 10 years his senior. That may sound good in regards to things like baseball or chess, but when "natural ability" is attributed to a skill that kills people, it usually involves a front page news story and increased airport security.
Naturally, safety was paramount when handing a 3-foot-tall human with a still-developing brain a deadly weapon, and Miko's parents stress the fact that he was trained under the strict supervision of both their family and the shooting community. You'd think the first part of that training would be saying, "Holy shit, that 6-year-old has a gun" and taking it away from him, but we're not gun experts.
This situation is completely under control.
