much safer than giving a kid size .22 rimfire rifle to a child. can't help but think the five year old in the news shooting his 2 yr old sister could have been avoided by giving that boy an air rifle instead of a firearm. NO five year old understands true danger of a firearm.
growing up we shot each other with a Benjamin pump up .177 air rifle loaded with a bb size seed. we were stupid and certainly knew better. dug out a few hits on my legs... at least we shot low at each other with limited pumps. with 10+ pumps, that Benjamin .177 air rifle would shoot through a metal trash can.
Agreed, but truth be told, it was many adults that wanted something "quieter"
