that is a tough question w/o knowing his personal tastes, some like wood and steel....others like black plastic.
in overall usefulness and versatility, it is very difficult to beat a shotgun imo.....birds, small game, varmits, big game, water bottles
.....right load takes them all!
i see a nice double barrel or pump with beautiful walnut furniture for me....er, your son......
