The problem with that, is the two guns that I hear most often are great instinctive pointers - the Luger and the Peacemaker - are two of the WORST pointing guns I have ever handled.
My son, who is not quite 2 years old, has balls (and toys) for several months now. I haven't really "taught" him yet how to do it. I think some of it may be learned from watching, but part of throwing a ball is instinctive (IMHO)
