i'm looking into a starter rifle for my boys - the length of pull on daddy's guns is just getting frustrating for the oldest and he reallylikes to go shooting.

Looking at the cricket and others...so i'll take your input. I'd like something with irons so i can teach him how to use them, but also want the ability to put a red dot on it as well. My oldest has some eye issues and some pretty thick glasses - he has a hard time with a regular scope right now becuase he can't get a good weld on the stock. He shoots very well with a red dot though on my 10/22, but the stock is still too long, and the trigger just plain stinks.

don't have alot of dough to put into this, and don't care if it's break barrel or bolt, but i want it to be single shot, and want the ability to fire LR, Long, and short (this goes without saying in most of them since we are not getting a repeater)

he can't hunt with the 10/22...and since i'm buying a new gun, it's time to get a weapon he can grow into. looking at possibly a youth stocked NEF or Rossi to grow into. I can always get the adult stock for it, and barrels to add calibers. Would love to get him out with some .410 shot shells for squirrels too.

Thx TS and Andy. just got off the phone with the W1F3 unit and I've been veto'd. (for now)...we'll see if things change. she thinks he's a bit young...i can't wait till she finds out what they actually do in cub/boy scouts which he is starting this fall. Could be a long winter...
