Review of Prepper Pete’s Gun of a Son

Review of Prepper Pete’s Gun of a Son

If you’re not familiar with the Prepper Pete books, let me tell you a little about them! The Prepper Pete books are children’s books that explore preparedness related topics in ways that are easy for children to understand.

Gun of a Son is the third installment of the Prepper Pete books. It is the story of Prepper Pete buying his son Charlie his first firearm and how Pete teaches his son to use the firearm safely and correctly. Going through a gun safety class, and later spending time at the range, and hunting together.

Gun of a Son teaches all of the safety rules as you would expect, as well as what kids should do if they find a firearm.

The book also shows the mistakes made by the grasshopper to show the dangers of making mistakes. This is probably my favorite aspect of the book, as I believe the visual example of why we don’t do things will help some children learn the concept better.

If you have young kids, this would be a great way to introduce these concepts to them. The same goes for all of the Prepper Pete books, which you can find by visiting the See the Books Page.. There are currently three, with more in the works! If you have a good idea for a topic, you can submit it on the See the books link above.

  1. Rev. Dr. Michael E Harris says:

    I do not have children in the right age range nor do I have any grandchildren. However, these might be useful for my friends in CERT.

    I would like to see a page or two of the book so I can see how (or if) it compares to the type of children’s prepper books that FEMA produces (theirs are activity books, but anything that helps)

    ” I believe the visual example of why we don’t do things will help some [adults] learn the concept better.”

  2. Looks like a great bunch of books and might mesh well with the “Eddie Eagle” program of the NRA.

    Growing up in the Sunshine State, one of my Father’s favorite saying was, “There are two kinds of people in Florida, those who prepare for hurricanes, and those who wish that they had”.

    God Bless

  3. These books came along at just the right time. My son loves them ad the gun safety book goes right along with what I’ve been teaching.
