I have a 22/45, so I'm a fan of the Mark series. Of course, theres many others to pick from. SR22 if you want more of a modern handgun feel. I'm just a biased Ruger fan

I take it your daughter is the mother of your grandson? I ask because I am guessing we are talking about an adult child. I want to make sure were are not talking about teaching a 5 year old for the first time.

If we are indeed talking about an adult I think they will have a great time with that autoloader. I would start out putting just a couple rounds in at first. Then after they have shown that they understand your safety instruction, I would let them fill it up all the way. I always do that with new shooters. I am assuming that you will give them proper safety instruction before letting them handle a gun.

Just went to the Limber website - honestly, it kinda sucks. Does Kimber make a .22 auto-loader? I do like Ruger, it is surely on my list....

I just realized were are in the handgun section. I have a Ruger 22/45. Awesome shooting pistol. I have trained several new shooters with it. Every one of them loved it. I would still start them out with a couple rounds at a time though. It is a lot easier to do something stupid with a pistol than with a rifle.

yes my daughter is the mother of my grandson . funny, reminds me of the Ray Stevens song "I am my own grandpa" too funny a song there!.

Anyway, he is currently 2 1/2 yrs old, she is only 22 yrs old, and a small build, a girly-girl kind of girl. I suspect the gun, with a crap load of others, will eventually be passed down to him. But this particular .22 - as soon as he is ready!! Waiting on that day every day

Nice looking gun, that Ruger. So tell me - does anyone make a .22 auto that will shoot both long and short?

Make it 3 votes for the Ruger- and no, they do not make a .22LR/ .22 Short in an auto. There are a very few .22 auto rifles that can do that- Remingtons with a floating chamber.
