I bought a Beretta neos for my son and daughter Who are 8 and 10.

It has a small grip, which is nice for kid sized hands, and eats any ammo I have fed it.
We have put about 5000 rounds through this gun since january with only a couple of ftf's in the first 200 rounds, since then no problems whatsoever.

The other great thing is that it is so simple to break down and clean, My 8 yr old can do it.

He's right. LOL

"I'd like to get a .22 pistol for my 10 year old son."
To ME that sounds like "here kid, here's your handgun, now go play and clean your room when you're done."

Did he really mean "I'd like to buy a gun my son can use with me (because the 9mm I lend him is just a hair too much for him)." That's not buying your son a gun. To me... LOL

Personally, I have a S&W model 17 revolver; but that would be a little pricey for a 10 year old I would think.

Ruger SP101 .22 might be a better choice if you wanted to go the revolver route. I wouldn't recommend the the .22 LCR due to it's very short sight radius which makes for much more difficult shooting.
Along the same line, an old H&R .22 revolver. You can find them still for short $$. Great shooters.

I would get something from the Ruger Mark - series, they are .22 pistols with 10 round magazines. They are fun, cheap, durable and reliable. if you dont like its look then you can always go with the Taurus P .22, hope this helps!

Personally.... I would buy either the Ruger LCR .22 or the SR22. Both feel good in my hands. But I would take him to hold a few and see what he likes. After all, it's his gun lol
