I might have to get one of those Crickets for my kids. My kids are at about the right mind set to learn the uber fantastic world of firearms.

I was born with a 1911 in one hand and a Remington 700 in the other.

A number of years back, I got my oldest grandson a Chipmunk. It was a great starter rifle for him. The tinny rear sight was problematic, but I eventually got around that by installing an inexpensive scope.

I've never heard of them being called "Chipmunks". Wal-Mart in my area sells a rifle that looks very similar and is called the "Crickett". My wife's sister has one that was given to her a few years back by an old man that lives down the road from her.

I wound up buying the savage cub- pink with thumbhole stock, basically the same rifle as the chipmunk or cricket. my daughter wanted the thumbhole. picked up a marlin 915YS the other day- very nice also - $189. daughter #2 wants the marlin, daughter #3 wants a 45-70 in stainless and laminate, and my 14 month old son just drools over everything!

I wouldn't hold back too much on this purchase. I don't remember my first football or baseball bat, but i remember my first .22 single shot, bolt action with the big external cocking mechanism on the back. I found out later that my dad picked it up used from a friend. I learned to shoot with it & so did my nephews. It is in a closet at Dad's house. I didn't know it wasn't brand new, but i could tell it was well made.

Honestly, i just got a bit misty thinking of all of the fun i had with that lil gun. I threw inumerable newspapers in the ever-present Mississippi rain so that i could buy my own ammo. I may have to go by & make sure it still shoots straight.
