Update on .22 Youth Rifle
« on: March 14, 2019, 08:54:13 PM »
I appreciate all the suggestions in a previous post for buying my great Niece or Nephew their first rifle.Some I may even have to buy for myself. My nephew called me today and they found out it was going to be a boy.If it had been a girl I had a pink rifle picked out.I ordered a Savage Rascal FVSR single shot with a heavier barrel that is threaded for a Suppressor today.I love Accutriggers and I wanted to train Winn on a bolt gun with a safety like most of the hunting rifles he would be using.Now to decide on a 2-7 power scope for it. He may as well have a variable power like the big boys.I had my nephew shooting an AR at 5.I figure I will have his son shooting this rifle at 4. ;D

That will be one lucky boy and he will have a rifle to treasure and teach his own kids how to handle a rifle safely. :)

Great choice Roger. Not only will it teach him to use a bolt, but has some safety also, more so than a semi-auto

I think this is awesome. And I think itís really really cool and important that you are taking the time and mental effort to come up with a gun that he will not only see as a ďbig boyĒ rifle but also something that he will be able to manage and have fun with. Iíve seen more than a few kids get bothered by learning to hunt/shoot because one or both of those factors are severely lacking. Good job Terminator! 

This is one of the reasons I try to always make sure my safe is stocked well with quality rifles on the lower end of the power/recoil range. From a quality air gun to my .17, to sturdy and capable 22 cals, and itís the main reason Iím so happy to have my .257bob back. One of the best parts about this hobby/passion of ours is introducing new hunters and shooters to the outdoors, whether they are 4yrs old or 40.
