I started my kids out young. I feel the more they know the better as there are many guns in the house. LOCKED up but still, Better they know how to use them correctly then think they are a toys. had the girls (age 8 and 14) out shooting today. some people think im nutts for having a 8yr old shooting a 9mm son 17 good with everything daughter 14 great with open sight rifle daughter 8 GREAT with scoped rifle. Going to invest in a semi auto .22. the girls are very small and have a serious "limp wrist" problem causing FTF/stovepipes with the recoil of a compact 9mm any suggestions ?? S&W .22 ??
