    I think she's a wee young for a real firearm, and that handgun doesn't look like a rimfire. I'd start her out with an airsoft.

    I started my kids shooting when they were about eleven, then only if they wanted to, and wore their hearing and eye protection. They can learn the rules and respect for a weapon very quickly. I was active LEO for many years and my duty weapon hung on a hook in my bedroom when not in use. All of my kids knew how to shoot it, clean it, respect it, and leave it alone. I still shoot with my kids and grandchildren and it is always an enjoyable day at the range.

    Kid's too young, imo. Unless that's an airsoft or bb gun or something. That would also explain the lack of eyes and ears.

    Well...

    My daughter was in kindergarden when she started shooting my P01. The one time that she forgot to lock her elbows and got a hot brass down her shirt she locked back the slide and dropped the magazine out of the weapon before telling me "I don't like your gun right now daddy!" I guess it depends on the chils and situation. She will be getting my Taurus 85, with pink grips added, for her 9th birthday.

    I see nothing wrong with it. Maybe some eye and ear protection, that's all.

    My eight year old shoots 9mm handguns WITH EYES AND EARS. I assist him with my hands on his wrists.

    Children's ears are fragile, hearing damage is a life long disability. FAIL!

    She appears to be around 4 or 5.

    Maybe a little to young

    My 12 year old started shooting when he was 10. He will shoot my XD45 or Kimber TLE but he prefers the 9mm CZ PCR. He will go through ammo like candy if I don't keep a close eye on him. He can load the mag, rack the slide, and flat wear it out.

    My 8 year old started shooting the Ruger 22/45 when he was 6. He still prefers the .22s but will shoot a 9mm when his brother teases him!

    My favorite Christmas present this year was a candid picture of me and my sons out shooting on the day after Thanksgiving. I didn't even know the person had taken the picture. They had it blown up to a 8X10, framed it, and suprised me with it for Christmas!

    Looks like a win to me. All of mine (5 of them in total) learned to shoot at about that age.
