I'm clueless about airsoft, but would like to get one for my 5 year old daughter as a starting point to begin easing her into firearms and firearms safety. She knows I have guns, and since she was brought home from the hospital I have always had a pellet gun near the back door, for taking care of the pigeons. She knows not to touch it unless myself or her mother are around. Anyways, my thinking is along these lines: get her an airsoft to begin getting her used to shooting and being safe. Then move her up to a BB gun when she has shown the proper respect and knowledge with the airsoft, after the BB gun move her into a Cricket .22 or something along those lines. I'd like to start her out on this fairly soon as we will have our annual family camping trip in the next couple months, and figured she would have fun with the airsoft. She has begun showing interest in shooting, and has even built a contraption in the back yard that she claims is her zombie gun, which is cute. Anyone have pointers on an airsoft that would be appropriate in size/power for a youngster? Am possibly I trying to start her out too early? Thanks in advance for any suggestions you guys may have.
