I know, I know I've heard both good and bad. I was going to buy a high point 9mm carbine but this came up and I wanted to start shooting at further distances. If its no good I'll just pass it on to my 17 year old and get the 700. It's my first "big rifle" so we will see how it does.

HBB, good is going to be based on how much you plan on shooting it. if you only plan on maybe a couple of boxes of shells a year, then it will probably serve your purposes. if you plan on reloading and working up loads for an accurate rifle, whether for hunting or target shooting, and shooting quite a bit, then you might be better off going ahead and getting a M700 and let you son have his first big rifle.

You know, if you use an SKS & some soft-point ammo, you could hunt that boar and have a handy bayonet for backup.

Id get a mosin..you.can get the rifle and the spam can of 880 rounds for probably 200$. Cheaper than a .22, but in the long run youll obviously save more money shooting a .22, just a route to consider.
