    6 year old daughter and 4 year old son. I got my daughter her first rifle for christmas. She has shot it a total of maybe 6 times. The sound scares her, and she is kind of prissy. Im trying to get her involved as much as possible without pressuring her. My son has a bb gun and he wants a real gun so bad he can taste it lol.

    If you are not currently using it, look for some hearing protection. It helps with the sound and can prevent shooters from developing a flinch. Also it protects their hearing They have them in all prices ranges. I have two pairs of Howard Leight electronic muffs that block 22db but amplify lower sounds so you can converse easier. I got them for about $38.00 a piece by waiting for them to go on sale. There non-electronic muff for around $15-20. You can even use disposable ear plugs.

    Ive looked around for some that fit properly, with no luck. So i opted for ear plugs, and she flinches bad. Im going to get some muffs soon, hopefully it will help with the flinching and improve her outlook on shooting.

    Great for you!!! Tell your daughter how beautiful she is when she shoots! If you haven't already, check out faliaphotography on utube- she demonstrates lots of cool guns and holsters and the like- makes shooting just lovely! My son is 7 and between two parents who work full time and all the commitments we all have, we're doing our best to keep him from becoming a pod-person, addicted to the the glowing screen! Am hoping our love of shooting rubs off on him. Good luck and welcome from Kentucky.

    Welcome to the forum from the left coast!

    This is a great place to learn, and kudos on getting the youngsters started early. Even if they don't really get into it later on, at least they won't have an irrational, emotional fear of firearms-which is 80% of the problem with most folks nowadays-and they will know how to handle them safely.

    Greetings and welcome to the forum from the Space Coast of Central Florida. I started shooting at about 6, so I think you are starting them at the right age.
