Peep sight is the best to start a new shooter kids especially. It's easier for them to grasp the dynamics of sighting. Buckhorns next will be a breeze to master.

You're doing great things Winds!

Congrats! I fully support educating kids at a young age about responsible use of firearms and, if they want to, letting them practice (under careful supervision & instruction, of course). Hell, it may just save them from growing into brainwashed liberals haha :P

I wish my Dad had been around to get me active at a younger age.

The last time I visited my son in Virginia I carried my Glock21. When I got there I proceeded to unload and secure my firearm in a portable safe. My 5 year old grandson watched me do this and said that his mom would be angry at me for bringing a gun. I proceeded to tell him that his mom knew about my gun and that it was not a problem. We did not discuss it further but my son is active military, special operations. He is intimate with firearms. My daughter-in-law's father and one of her brothers are LEO's. She grew up aware of firearms and I know that she does not object to me carrying. I cannot wait for the time that I am able to introduce my grandkids to the shooting sports, however, I do not know what they are being taught in school and at home. I just hope that they have not had their minds poisoned in this regard.

Damage? Because you taught some tradition, you yourself was no doubt taught by your parents, that is not damage because they choose to be true to your original core belief.

Great that you have choosen to now embrace firearms, but cut the kids some slack, they will more than likely do just fine as you raised them to be.

Believe me, I am not angry at my kids at all. I am simply trying to teach them firearms can be a positive factor in our lives, unlike what I taught them. There is 'no slack to be cut'. I know my kids only know what they have been taught. As for me, my parents neither taught me to like or dislike firearms. It just never was discussed and was never an item of discussion in my house. Like I said, I just never knew better.

Glad to see someone change their ways!

Firearms are a wonderful hobby, when you open up to it. I consider it somewhat of an "art". There are infinite possibilities, any part of a firearm can be made from different things, there are tons of different ammo types, there isn't a limit to what you can do!

There is something to be said for the fact that they would've made their own choices either way.

My Father took his life with a firearm when I was 9. Most everyone expected me to be terrified of them, but in a way I knew the THING was not evil, it would not have saved him by not being there...it's just a thing, and it was my Father's actions that took him. They just never intertwined for me.

Instead of hating weapons, or even remaining complacent, I've eagerly welcomed all chances to learn about them, and finding out that when you use common sense with archery, hand to hand combat, knives, or firearms, they're more than protection, they're damn fun & can be very healthy hobbies.

Point of this ramble is: often there is no accounting for aspects of somebody's future self. Most of life defies logic & reason anyway :P

Damn, I gotta get some sleep before I do this twice
