for new rifle shooters, a bolt action 22 is the best place to start. able to learn basic shooting practices without any recoil to deal with. most people learn this at an early age, but even older new shooters should start here. i started with a 22 at about 7 or 8, and by the time i was about 10 or 11, i was shooting my fathers 243. so the suggestion for a 22 for a new shooter is the same one i will make. just makes sense to start at the beginning of the learning curve.
