    Hello. Id like your thoughts on when, how, what, ideas on getting kids to shooting. Been taking them to the range, havent let them shoot yet, havent bought a firearm for the exercise. Dont want to go BB yet any ideas welcome. Safety will be thru education programs in house or thru the community support. Id like to expose them and let them choose their own sport when the time comes; just basic instruction. Growing up, my dad was an avid gunner yet didnt buy us an airgun until 16. If that was then, how should I do it before TV culture gets them.

    Why not some air soft guns ? Safe & might create an interest.

    I started my kids at 6 years old with a bbgun,
    at 8 yr old went to a 22 single shot rilfe.at 10 yr old I took them
    hunting with me they carred the bbgun (no bb's) at 12yr the kids
    took gun safety classes from our state DNR.
    My youngest is now 16 and has been shooting with me for 10 yrs
    and hunting for 6 and hand loading for over 3yrs. These are the best, and the safest hunting and shooting partners I will ever have,Start them young teach them right from wrong, and you will have a lifetime of fun.
