Looking to purchase a .22 bolt action rifle for my son. Not semi auto or anything like that. I want to teach him patience at the range. Then move him into handguns after. Willing to travel a bit, from SWFL. And after the holidays. FTF only as I don't have a particular FFL I go to. I do have my CWFL for those who don't know me. My son is 9 and has shot before.

Thanks brother. My dad has one but refuses to gift it to his grandson, he thinks it is too early for him to learn. Yet both my father and I learned to shoot on the same rifle, at 7 years old. Trying to understand his logic but he is drunk most of the time.

Thanks man, it is on my list. Just seeing if anyone has something they want to part with. Not a priority on "my" list but he has been begging me to go shooting. He even wanted to attend the course with me but his lazy butt would not get out of bed so...

The Ruger American Rimfire comes in a "compact" version (which is what I got, since it was for my daughter). She was 10 at the time, but she's still very petite. The compact version comes with two stock inserts. You can also get standard size inserts. FWIW.

Another nice thing is that the RAR takes the 10/22 mags. If you already have a 10/22 and a bunch of mags, that's a handy feature.

9! Sure is old enough my uncle, ex marine taught us right when I was 8 or 9. He should gift it to you and let you decide. Or just go get one yourself. We learned on an old pump action, like the ones used at the county fair. Now options abound.....and it doesnt cost that much...

I started at 9, Savage makes the Rascal it's the perfect size for kids. You might be able to pick one up in time for X-mas I remember my first gun and how happy it made me, it was a milestone. It's 161$ at Buds in many colors. Merry X-mas

Don't rule out lever actions. I bought my son a Henry lever .22 and he loves flipping that thing.
Also serves same purpose as a bolt which is one round per flip of the lever/bolt.

At $299 it's a great all american deal.
:thumsup on my list. I look at this every time i walk into walmart
