I like the idea, and if it's a reasonable driving distance to me I might go either alone as a range safety officer (I've served in that role before at public and private shooting ranges) or with my nephew and/or one of my nephew's friends. I agree that this should be rimfire only, and only RIFLES. .22LR handguns are LOUD, and "loud" is not a good thing for newbies. The rifle-length barrel makes a lot of difference in the sound signature of a gun. What would the shooting range look like? Will it have a bathroom available? Will it have a hand-washing station, or a table set up with hand wipes (to get the lead off your skin?) Will it be shaded or covered in case that day it's drizzling / light rain, but you want to shoot anyway and not send anybody home disappointed? Finally, will there be a safe place that kids can wait their turn to go to the firing line, and this safe place is something of a corral or pen that contains them? Otherwise kids will wander, even into the woods to do a flanking maneuver to approach the backstop area!
