    We should not forget that the spark which ignited the American Revolution was caused by the British attempt to confiscate the firearms of the colonists. -

    Thanks guys. She has had a Red Ryder BB gun for about a year. We have been talking gun safety to her from the time she could understand the words.

    The cricket is a great entry level gun specifically designed for young children.I got a bb gun at 6 yoa and got to shoot my Dads 22 when I was around 9 yoa.

    Congrats, I took my 7 yr old to the range for the first time last month and she actually wanted to stay longer and shoot when I thought we were done. Hope you got a picture or two for the scrapbook.

    My girls (9 and 12) save all their paper targets. They both have a shelf full of them. It drives their Mom crazy, she can't stand clutter and sees no use for them.
