I've been looking forever for my son a LH youth bolt action in something appropriate for an enthusiastic 12yo hunter. Decided Christmas would be the occasion for his very own dedicated hunting stick…just in time for a winter trip to TN in pursuit of whitetails.
Tried to find a Brown Micro LH… despite being in the current catalog they must have only made a half dozen…they're sold out and don't know when they'll make more.
Gave some thought to a Ruger Scout in LH…pull the spacers, slap on a Leupold IER…that'll do. I messed around with it…seemed too heavy for what it is. I like Scouts…didn't really think this was it for a kid's first high power.
Found a Savage…7-08, LH, youth stock, Nikon scope already on it… rifle, three boxes of cartridges and a sling for six bills. Should do nicely. This is my first excursion with a Savage in a long time…I hope their sterling reputation for accuracy holds for this one.
