The best starter BB Gun is the Daisy Red Ryder. I got mine when I was 5 in 1988 and I still have it now and it works great. It is reliable, accurate and a great starter. It depends really on how much you can spend, you can get a red ryder for about $40.00. There are automatic ones that can shoot in 3 round burst that look like uzi's. you can get ones that look like pretty much anything you want. But the red ryder is the best place to start.
