This is one of the big no-nos that seem to cause so much controversy. I always smirk and roll my eyes when someone says how they do not allow their kids to play with guns ever. My brothers and I played with them, hell we even shot BB guns (with adult supervision) and we never tried to kill anyone. And never thought guns were something to play with. So, do you let your kids play with guns? *Fake guns people*

Ds is 5 and imo too young for a real gun. He has nerf guns.

They are allowed to play with nerf guns and squirt guns. We are teaching them how to handle real guns. Tey have so far only shot bb guns since it is all we have at the moment, but we will be getting a 22 soon and teach them that.  I hunted from when I was little and want my kids to learn how to handle them correctly

She has 2 fakes and will possibly be allowed a real one when she is older. If she's interested she can shoot a real one when she is old enough (mature enough) but she is only 3 now.

 My kids both have toy guns, and my oldest dd will be getting her first bb gun in a year or so. Probably for her 6th birthday, going at the rate she is. My girls both love going "hunting" in our living room. They like to "shoot" their stuffed animals, then they get all excited, and have to run and tell daddy they shot a bear (or a duck, or a rabbit, lol).

No. Toy guns were allowed starting after age 5.

Guns are a weapon and/or tool. Not a toy. My children USE guns. They practice with them. They compete with them but like a screw driver or any other tool they do not play with them.
