Looks like a nice gun to me. Anything that gets the family involved is great, and with ammo prices the way they are, you can afford to feed it.

22's are cheap and a great introductory weapon you can actually scare somebody off shooting by letting them fire a gun that the recoil is intimidating,easing them into higher calibres and different platforms til they find they're gun is the key

+1 on that! My son turns 21 next month and is hitting me up with questions on getting his permit and stuff like "what do like better, XD, Golck, Kimber,or........"

EVERYONE needs a .22. I don't think I've ever had more fun than when my brother and two of our friends literally pulverized three pumpkins... with .22's. We were young teenagers (supervised of course) and it took two cases of .22 rounds to do it. We kept having to stop to let the barrels cool off. By the time we were done there was nothing left but seeds and pulp mixed in with the dirt. Good times.

Great job, I agree with Roadrunner...everybody should have a .22. Cheap to shoot, low recoil, pretty accurate, and a great way to introduce new shooters to the sport.
Keep it up...they'll come around. They always do.

Everyone needs a few .22's... A pistol for the kids to shoot, perhaps a 2nd, because you'll never get to shoot the other one. A revolver is always nice. An inexpensive .22 tube loader, pump, auto, or bolt, for plinking and teaching new shooters the basics of long gun shooting, and a good quality .22 rifle for hunting or target duty.
One is never enough!
Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle. Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. It's worth it.

I agree too. If someone is nervous about recoil, noise, etc, start off with a .22.
