    No guns or weapons at the moment. I don't mind if when they get older they have water pistols but I don't want something that supposed to look like a kalishnakov et al. DS does have a little toy cannon that actually shoots wooden bullet type things at soldiers - it's not something I would have actually bought him but it's hand crafted entirely by FIL so I can't really say no (FIL is a very skilled wooden toy maker).

    A few weeks ago we were at a big family reunion bbq and there were a handful of toys, one of which was a toy gun. DS picked it up and said "what's this?". I like that his is blissfully unaware of such things.

    As for more girly toys, I will be actively delaying as long as possible any bratz, barbies, etc. BLEGH!!!!!

    [QUOTE=Happy2be3;6518818]I get that... But my question was.. What do you use them for? As far as I understand guns are for killing things (animals and people).. Are you telling me the only thing you do with guns is shoot green bottles?

    No, you go to gun ranges and shoot targets, take part in international shooting competitions, do marker races {targets hidden in a property, shoot them as accurately and fast as possible}, shoot clays, do nationwide tournaments...

    It's like martial arts. Do Shaolin monks go around beating the hell out of random people?
    The police don't practise by mowing down animals.
    Archery is another example.

    Most of the time, shooting is for fun and only used on targets.

    There's a LOT of information out there on helping people to understand gun ownership myths.

    THANKYOU! Finally someone answered my question. :-) I and I think most people have no problem with guns being used as a sports to shoot non living things. Problem is.. Most kids associate guns with killing people as that's what's on the media all the time. It's this association that leads me to choose no guns for my son.

    I honestly have no problem with any toys whatsoever. Lol i just realised there is nothing that i would not let her have.
    My first meth lab maybe? Ha.

    The guns dont kill people argument reminds me of the gif- if guns dont kill people, people kill people, does that mean toasters dont toast toast, but toast toasts toast?
    Or something like that bahahaha

    Yeah no toys are off limits here

    We do draw the line at tvs or consoles in the bedrooms, but as far as toys go my two can really play with anything
