7. I disagree - we five grandchildren had a Daisy air rifle that we shared, nice walnut stock, etc

BUT! our uncles, fathers, and grandfather would beat our asses if we even thought of pointing it at anyone! We would shoot outside toward the burn barrel and always had to have an adult around before we could shoot. I think around 12 y/o we no longer had to do that.

Air rifles are strong as crap. My son found this out when we handed down the rifle to him.

It is bad instruction/parenting, whatever, that would have a child confused over if it is real or not and to point anything toward anybody, no matter.
