I would NOT do it
It will lead to a habit as bad as any drug

Very similar principles involved, I agree watch him first, go over operations unloaded till comfortable, remember your breathing,, and have fun. Its ablast,, literally.

I'm guessing your 14? If so nothing to be nervous about, I have a 15 yr old daughter that handles my full size usp .40 caliber no problem. (And just between me and you, she's a bit of a girly girl.) Just get comfortable with it. And throw lead..lol
