I don't like my kids playing 'guns' and notice that my DS1 occasionally does engage in gun play. We have had several talks about why we don't "play" guns, because I feel they aren't toys. He is 6, knows what they are and what they do. If I see him doing it, I remind him why we don't play guns and encourage something else. I know other kids DS's age do it, and I just have to encourage him what we feel is best and hope that he has the courage to make his own choices.
