I know many of you have kids that have been shooting for a long time but I just now have seen enough safety respect and rule following from my 2 that I now trust them to shoot more than the pellet gun. This is how they spent part of their Spring Break. The boy's a lefty, does that cost more, or just harder to find gear?

Awesome Gary. My son is 8 and started shooting the 10/22 I got for him this past fall. He had shot a BB gun for a couple years as well as my dad's old bolt action .22. He too shows the responsibility, behavior, focus and listening skills but before and during each shooting session we continuously go over the 4 rules of handling firearms.

My son also shoots lefty but does everything else in life righty. I was talking to another dad at baseball practice this week about his son that also shoots lefty but does everything else righty. Be prepared for either more expensive guns or less options as he starts his collection.

I like the stock on the bolt gun your daughter is using.

Can be a little more pricey but thereís a good bit of LFHD products out compared to 10 years ago.

Well Done Dad.
I'm a OLD Geezer and I'm also a Lefty. I Never liked Left-Handed Firearms, they felt awkward, So I just Shoot Right-Handed Rifles ,
Actually a Lefty can cycle a Right Bolt Action Faster than a Right Handed Shooter can.
On the AR Rifle there's a Brass Deflector accessory That attaches to the Pic-Rail that will Deflect the fired cases Down and away
from the Left handed shooters face .
Enjoy the shared Time with the Kids!!

My nephew is a lefty and shoots lefty but has never shot anything but right handed guns. He is a fine marksman. Shooting a right handed rifle is natural to him.
