Default Suggestions on a trainer for a 6 year old?

Any suggestions on a trainer air rifle for a 6 year old boy, something strong enough to be taken seriously but not weak enough to see the pellet/bb flop out of the front, how do these .177 hit a target at 20/30 yards?

Get either a Remington airmaster or a powerline 880. And they hit very hard at that distance. The two I mentioned are pumps so it is dependent on how may times it is pumped up and how many times said 6 year old is capable of pumping it.

i got my air rifle when i was 11. i would use one or two pumps and shoot it into a pellet trap in the basement. its a pump with a max fps of about 600. how is this not a good choice compared to the other two already mentioned that im sure reach a higher fps than that?
