He did hit the tree two out of three shots.

lol..yea it is a little big for him.
After the first shot, we had to brace it up on a lawn chair for him.

Might I suggest something?
First Guns For Kids—.22 Rifles by Kim (printed from TheOtherSideofKim.com)

You may already know/plan something like this....but they are pretty cheap and kids are soooo happy when they actually can hold the gun like "just like daddy".

Gotta rag on ya for one thing (I know this rifle is way too big for him) but I'd never let kids use a scope on their initial tries. Gotta learn sight alignment as soon as possible. OK rag over.....

Thats pretty cool...I hope he had fun....I never had this sort of opportunity with my step-son....

Vic, I agree 100%. That is the only gun I have, so we made do.
I wasn't to fond of using the scope, but thats what we had.
He will learn how to shoot with sites long before he gets to be lazy...lol

I looked at those guns, and one of them my brother bought for his little boy some years ago. He has since grown out of it. It is one of those little bolt action 22.
Im going to get it for him. It is a bit more his size.

Thanks for the link.

When my two boys and my girl were eight to ten years old, I tried to teach them how to shoot.
They are now in their late thirties and each one has thanked me for what I taught them. They were all impressed by my demonstration of how powerful a gun is.
To demonstrate the power, I had each try to make a hole in a thick piece of wood and a thin piece of metal with a hammer, punch and chisel. Then I let them shoot the object.
I stressed to them the danger associated with guns and told them that anytime they want to handle or fire one, or show to a friend, I would assist them.
They have each told me that they never once took a peek at one without my knowledge.
I think I did the right thang
