    Check around for a Cricket. Tiny single shot bolt-action for around a $100. Bought 2 for my kids and they were 7 and 10. They love em. Can find them anywhere.

    + 1 on the Cricket. Got one for my daughter when she turned 7.

    Plenty of time for the 10/22 in a couple of years IMO.....

    That Henry Youth might be a choice if you want a repeater but I agree with those that recommend a Single for the the first one.

    Or how about a Cricket?

    Or how about the new Remington model 5 youth? I like this one because of the single shot adapter and then the 5 shot mag too.

    You might even consider something like a Savage Model 24 over under which gives you a 20 gauge bottom and .22LR upper both in single shot for something he can use both ways. I think there is a youth length in that too. Also you could find an old Stevens 22-410 for that sort of thing.

    Lots of other choices. A good Youth length will last him a while and be something he can hand down to his kids.

    The Henry mini bolt action .22 I got for my son is a single shot on the same pattern of the Cricket.

    I am going to pick up a Cricket at the end of the week for my 7yr. old. My local shop can get it for $140, Sportsman's Warehouse has them for $149 and Walmart sells them for $90. Seems to be a good starter rifle. I learned on a .22 singleshot Remington at about the same age. I started a thread on the Cricket over in the General Firearm Discussions section .

    Thanks, I do see where the single shot bolt action will be the best for several reasons. Now all I have to do is decide on the make and model!

    You might look at a cricket, it's a single shot .22 these rifles are very compact. IMO these rifles are a good choice for teaching our youth proper firearm safty and shooting. you can find them at wal-mart, (well at least the ones who still have the display case) for around $100

    I bought my son a Savage Cub last year. It's a single shot with an Accutrigger. Savage did a really nice job. Next up....We've got a Winchester 94-22mag. My son helped pick it out....guess he's watched a few old westerns with his old man!

    Here's what the Cub looks like:

    Savage Arms Mini Youth Model Cub

    I think starting off with a single shot makes sense when teaching firearms safety and how to handle a rifle. Then, move them into a 10/22 or other semi.

    Just my two cents worth,

    I am think about a Rossi single shot, with changable barrels from .22lr to .410.

    I learned to shoot on a bolt action .22 with sights, and I recommend the same-a clip loaded rather than a tube magazine, but a bolt action with sights for sure. I have a 30+ year old Marlin Glenfield that is still accurate enough for squirrel hunting and cost under $100.
    I'd hold off on a semi auto till he learns to shoot well and safely and make his shot count.
    FWIW, I learned to shoot in the Cub Scouts well over 50 years ago. The boy scouts awarded merit badges for marksmanship, but I don't know it they still do. Might be something to investigate.

    Enjoy.

    The Chipmunk made by Rogue Rifle Co. is a good bolt .22 for kids. I like the 10/22, but for reasons previously stated plus the fact that the stock setup is a little on the heavy side for kids, I would go with a kid's size bolt.

    I was thinking the same thing. We have a .22/20ga, and it's not bad at all. I even bought the extended recoil pad for it.
