Let's face it...If you don't teach your kids to shoot, someone else will. Wouldn't you rather be the one to show your kids the ropes, proper gun handling, safety procedures and more? The Gamo Recon G2 Whisper air rifle has a lot going for it, including its light weight. It shoots pellets (either lead or alloy) and is great for instruction as well as hours of shooting entertainment. This rifle is part of Gamo's Youth Precision Airgun line. Of course, that doesn't mean only kids can shoot it. In fact, the low velocity and light weight make it attractive for adults who just want to do some plinking without a Herculean cocking effort. Most shooting instructors recommend starting with open sights. Once the shooter is accomplished in using them, mount the dot sight for further instructions using optics. Move your shooter along and help him progress to a higher level of marksmanship without having to buy another air rifle.
Remember to get some reactive targets that immediately deliver feedback to the shooter without having to go downrange to see what happened. Showing the shooter where the shot landed helps hone shooting skills and keeps him interested. Lastly, this is a pellet rifle. Unlike guns that shoot steel BBs, the ammo from this rifle has a significantly lower chance of ricocheting and bouncing back to the shooter. That said, everyone (not just the shooter) should wear safety glasses. Remember to remove all pets from the area so ricochets don't bounce back to them.Features
