My older two each have their own Crickett's. DS was 4 when he got his, ODD was 6, I think, or maybe had just turned 7. They were thrilled with them. DH takes them out shooting and they are turning into good shots.

However, before buying the guns for them, they got a very, very thorough lessoning in gun safety. They got drilled, too, so we knew they knew the correct answers and knew the why of the safety. So long as the gun safety is taught, I see no problem with a 4 yr old having a gun.
