A different option that I chose to let my child get slowly acquainted with firearms is the shotgun adapter. I slide these into the barrel of my single shot 12 gauge and can shoot anything from .22lr, 9mm Luger, .410 or 20 gauge. The range suffers but it's all about teaching fundamentals and firearms safety.
