Guns Like firearms themselves, there's a wide variety of opinions on what's the best gun.

depending age, stature and ability start with a 22 atleast and keep going from there. dont jump to fast as in not from 22 to 12ga. get them used to shooting with something like a 22 and get them to be accurate. then move only when you and the child feel comfortable. teach them to use both scopes and iron sights. i think kids and young adults both are neglecting the simplicity and accuracy of iron sights due to lack of being properly taught.

kids and guns scare me, hell most adults and guns scare me. Let a kid tote a pellet gun around for a while. the'll learn a lot. Just hope thy dont shoot their eye out.
I cut my teeth on a bb gun before moving up to a pellet gun.

I started with .22 with an NRA rifle safety course. Those things are aperture sights only; I've never touched a scope in my life. Seems to me that if you got them used to using something like an aperture sight then scope would not be a problem to switch to.

The kid, (I don't have one BTW) would use the gun to show up his old man.

You guys must know that he can't respond because a bunch of dudes banned him. Quite a shame, huh? That's why we need to bring him back, so that he can tell us what he meant.
