Last month, my step-mother's coworker and 2 of her daughters i believe 13 (background on the purple 10/23) and 20 years old (foreground on the sub2k 9mm). The mother used to be pretty anti-gun, but she let me take them out and teach some things.
They were willing to try everything from a 10/22 (couldnt tear the youngest away) to handguns to my Mosin 91/30.

I started them on the Mosin and worked backward. They started out thinking all were scary. Ended with "these are all fun, but the Mosin kicks a lot - but I hit a steel plate at 100 yards with it!!"

Fun time for everyone.

My grandson's been shooting 22 rifles for a few years and tried my Ruger Standard last year, but it was a little heavy. Now that he's bigger and stronger we gave it a whirl with a Taurus 8 shot 22 revolver. The hammer pull is a bit tough, but we'll get past that with time.
