My dad started me out with a single action colt .22 when I was about 5. I got to tag along when he went to the range for a few years till he got out of shooting. However, little did he realize that he had created a monster so he ended up buying me a red ryder BB gun to satisfy my need to shoot stuff(the local squirrel population suffered as a result). I think 5 or 6 is fine to teach a child to shoot, but that depends on the child. I know several kids in that age range that I wouldn't let anywhere near a gun, then again, I have no problems handing my SKS over to my 9 year old cousin.
