Im prolly gonna step on some toes with this one but i dont care. If your kid cant hold the gun and look through the scope then stay at home and do what small children do. I saw a facebook post where the gun was in this big ol vise thing and the scope had a damn iphone attached to it so the phone screen showed the crosshairs. Are you kiddin me. The kid looked at the phone and pulled the trigger. Im sorry but that just bugged the crap out of me. Theresso much more to it then that but lets just skip all the other stuff and just kill something.
