So my bb girl, who is 4 years old, asked us for her birthday for "a gun like daddy's. A real one. Not a toy. One that shoots. But little, like me."

So I bought her the most inexpensive co2 powered airsoft gun I could find so she can learn the basics. It's black and green and has zombies on the package.....

Should I feel like a bad Dad for buying my sweet little girl a "6mm zombie killer" for her birthday?

Almost time to take the 4-Legged child to his Groomer. He's tranked...so there will be no "nipping" of other puppies or the groomer! He's already loopy. He's a DUI-Dog under the influence....
A little change up: I will be doing my Cleveland football spot today at 1Et instead of tomorrow.....www.thesportsfix.net & @TheSportsFixCle

Thankfully she agreed. And we spent half an hour or so shooting her stuffed animals, leaves in the yard, a tree and 2 of her blankets. (All her ideas.)

She's so little it takes 2 fingers to squeeze down on that trigger. But she's pointing it at the stuff she want to shoot and being careful not to point it at anything else, and keeping her finger out of the trigger guard when she's not shooting. Which is better than some adults I know.

And all it took to gather such a seriousness from her was me felling one of her birthday balloons with it as soon as I got it functional.

Next step: getting her to sight over the top of the slide.

Delta- no more guilty than when I was at the range this summer with 3 pretty teenage girls- my granddaughters. Tearing up targets on the 50 yd line.

Gonna be some shook up boys out there!

I dont care to plant but I might indulge with these a bit .
4-500 rnds and a AA12 you can do some serious planting .

I don't think so. I did tell Santa to bring my 5 year old son a Rossi .22/.410 combo though so my opinion might not be the best one to take. Junior was hitting 2 inch targets at 80 yards last weekend too!! Yeah, I'm bragging a little
