The best part about the pumpmaster series is that it doesn't have to be fully pumped to achieve accuracy at short distance 5-10yds. And when she gets older she can practice longer range. I got to about 30-35yds when I put a Tasco 3-7x20mm scope on it and it did decent shot placement. With the horrendous triggers on most of the cheaper guns you really need to concentrate. Its really nice practice! Anyway Best of luck to you!
