Good advice. Thanks.my advice is to forget the single shot criteria and buy a box magazine fed bolt action. Start him loading one in the magazine. No need to fill it up just because you can. But once he is proficient and has proven himself a safe marksman, he will already have a repeater that he is familiar with. I think your idea of buying a used rifle is excellent. Cruise the shots until you see a nice Remington 581, 540x, a Mossberg, etc. Buy him something like that, or maybe a CZ452 or 455 youth scout rifle.
Lol. "Best" and "lower than $300" is a little oxymoronic.I was thinking lower than $300.
Thanks gents. I learned on an old Mossberg when I was in the Cub scouts. All I remember is that it was single shot and had peep sights. Then my parents got me a tube fed semi-auto from Sears for Christmas when I was about 11 as I recall. Wish I still had that gun but it got lost in a divorce.
I'm going to start cruising some pawn shops and there is a pretty big gun show here in Belton every month or so at the expo center so something will turn up.
Wow. Entirely uncalled for.
Calling his choice a piece of shit rifle is uncalled for. You were rude. But hey, do you.Not really. It's called honestly.
You don't ask for the best and then state that your budget will only allow the cheapest.
My Dad bought his grandsons Tikka's. Not because they were the best or cheap, but they fit the "good enough to last 50 years" in a very reasonable price point.
I'm not arguing against the statement that Anschutz are some of the best rimfire guns in the world, but that photo is of air rifles.
Yea, they dress funny and wear blinders because apparently they’re easily distracted, and rifles look funny too, but I have to believe that these are probably da bestest 5.6mm (wut they call a .22) rifles…
