I heard about this from my grandmother. We were watching the old Superman cartoons (The 90s one) when she told me about it.

I was really surprised that my grandmother knew about superman at the time.

My grandma is the best.

I don't believe it. The kid would have to be young enough to believe in Superman, yet old enough to get his hands on a gun. He'd have to either have a gun with him at all times, or know Reeves. There's no specific year, location, or really any specifics to this story at all. Sounds like an urban legend. At IMDB they claim the gun was a Luger, which I doubt because that just so happens to be the same gun he was killed with years later. So I think the stories are getting mixed.

I did find this on a website.

Did George Reeves really almost get shot by a young boy while speaking to a group of children?

This is likely untrue. Reeves often spoke to groups of children to help promote the Superman TV series. As the story goes, once when he appeared to speak at a department store wearing the Superman costume, a boy who had taken his father's gun almost shot Reeves. The boy explained that he wanted to watch the bullets bounce off Superman. Luckily, the situation was apparently averted, and thereafter Reeves continued to speak to groups of children, only without the Superman costume. This is believed to have been a story made up by Reeves, so that he wouldn't have to wear the costume at public appearances. In costume, children would often kick him and throw rocks at him to test his Superman abilities. -fragmentsfromfloyd.com

DId you know Christopher Reeves released a movie where he played a paraplegic just two days before he fell off his horse and actually became paralyzed?

I wonder if the Superman curse is going to keep up and the actor who plays the next Superman is going to die.
