    Might be a good start. Looking at one of these for my 9 and 11 year old.

    Every one of our nephews has this setup....they really enjoy it because it also gives them the option of the 410. It comes with a handy storage case and are about $200 for the set.

    I remember that when I was 9 or 10 I was using a ruger 10-22, easy to use, fairly light and will last throughout the teen years... I still use mine to this day.. Also, good for a scope or open sights.

    My 7yr old daughter has a CZ 452 Scout.
    You have the choice of single,5rd or 10 round mags.
    Can also put a full size stock on it when they out grow it.
    But it fits me fine when i have a coat on.
    It was a little heavy for her off hand shooting but this year she can hold it up fine.
    Thing is more accurate than me.

    Same here I got my 10/22 at 9 and still use it 20 years later.

    Default Rossi

    Rossi makes a super light, small .410/.22 single shot break action. I put a sling on for my son and he loves it; packs it all day. Bought on base for about $130. Check it out.

    Cast, yep, that's the link I posted up top, sounds like you got a heck of a deal though. I think we paid just under $200 at SW for theirs...

    Another vote for the CZ452 scout rifle. I think I got my wife's for around $300 but it is well worth the extra money. It is without a doubt the MOST accurate rim fire I have ever had. It is truly a fine firearm. My only complaint is the magazine. I have a 10 round magazine for it but prefer the single shot insert. The 10 round magazine kinda hangs down out of the gun and I don' like that.

    When I have children, the CZ will be their first rifle.

    Plus "ONE" for the: CZ-452 SCOUT They are so accurate that many adults, Myself (63) included extend the LOP for adult use.

    They do make a 5rd that is almost flush with the bottom of the magwell.

    The 10 Round only sticks out about an 1/8" and yes they do offer a 5 round magazine. The .22 Magnum is the one that pee's me off. So I have modified them to fit flush. Side Note: on the CZ's, I have a 453 with single set-trigger, and it is adjustable to 00-00 the 452 trigger is so adjustable as to make the Single-set trigger not needed.

    Default Rossi and savage Cub

    I have both the rossi 410/22 combo and savages cub rimfire. The savage is a much better made gun and a blast to shoot. They also make it in a very girl friendly, bright pink. My 8 year old duaghter just adores it and begs to get out shooting any chance we get.
    The hammer on the rossi was a little stiff for her to enjoy shooting too much.

    I like the idea of getting them a gun they can keep when they are older. I got my son a chipmunk when he was 8. He loved that gun and still likes it but at 15 and almost 6'2" it doesn't fit him.

    The Rossi 410/22 is a great set up. My youngest loves his Marlin Lil' Buckaroo. I chose it due to the bolt action and safety is just like any other large game hunting rifle.

    Default Crickets are the way to go

    I have both the rossi combo and a couple crickets for my now 10 year old.

    the problem with most youth .22 s is the weight.

    Rossi 22/ 410 5 lbs
    henry mini bolt 5.5 lbs

    ect....

    Cricket 2.5 lbs...

    it's a cheap little gun, but they shoot great. $120 bucks in black syn. can't beat . and when they grow out of it give it to another youngster and they will never forget!!

    Default Marlin 915

    I purchased this gun for my son's 7th birthday. I like stainless guns and this one fit the bill nicely. High vis sights also.
