I rember the day`s when I was teaching my kids how to use a gun, yhay was a long time ago. Now I`m working on the grand kids. Watch for a good pellet rifle that will shoot accurately. It will not take her long untill her ability to shoot will way behond the accuracy of the BB gun. If you get a good pellet rifle you won`t need a 22 rifle for another 5 or 6 years, and you can take her squirrel hunting with the pellet rifle.
I started my son with a Ruger 10/22 short version at 6 years of age. He is now 10 and has taken over my Glock 17. he has also fired my Glock 26, Rossi Ranch Hand .44mag, and Colt 1911 Wiley Clap .45ACP.
But the G17 is his favorite.
