I've got a boy turning 5 in March. I want to get him a .22. He is tall and lanky, only weighing in at 41 pounds. Not a lot of muscle tone, due to a medical condition that keeps him a little on the scrony side.
So my question is.... Do I go with a smaller Crickett style .22 that will fit him now, but will be small for him in a few years OR go with a gun that is a little bigger such as the CZ or Savage Cub. The larger guns will be a little heavy for him right now and will either cause him to fight the fore end weight unassisted or he will need assistance.
I think I am leaning towards the smaller gun so he can carry and sling it now and have success NOW. and if he needs a bigger gun later then I can get him one.
Someone else out there has had this same decision to make.... any ideas?
Thanks in advance,
