Slowing it down is really, really good for teaching gun handling and marksmanship (not to mention easier on the budget, even if you're shooting .22s).

    Next - if you select a double-action revolver, the DA trigger pull is a huge discipline builder... even with dry-fire. Balance a penny on the barrel (if it has a rib) throughout the DA trigger stroke while keeping the sights aligned on the target... can't really get much out of that exercise with an autoloader.

    Last - if you start him out with a SA revolver like a Single-Six, he will have to learn good muzzle and trigger discipline to de-cock and unload.
    Gasmitty has given some sound advice, and I agree!
