I know this is how we were introduced to firearms but I wanted to share this my 4 year old daughter was able to hit a target 7 yards away with my old Daisy BB gun. I had her shoulder it, find the target, turn off the safety, then squeeze off the shot. All I did was hold the end of the barrel to stabilize it. To say the least I am one proud daddy. I hope she remembers this as positively as I will.
