On our third daughter we finally got it right. got her a red Ryder BB gun and she loves shooting cans in the yard. She got it at about 4 yo.
Any time we do anything with guns she brings her BB gun. Her older sisters were probably 8 when we got them a pump pellet gun.
I grew up with a single shot bolt action Remington .22 LR. All the girls shoot that rifle and learn about sight picture and practice. The 14 and 16 yo each have shot the .223 and a 7mm-08, as well as a 20 gauge youth model 870. I'll estimate they were introduced to the centerfires at 10 or 11. Same age as Hunter safety.
