I'd personally recommend getting the most basic, cheap model you can get. If you get bored with that throw on red sight or the Ruger 25 round magazine (very reliable and a blast to play with). If you really want to change the look of the rifle though there are so many stocks you can make it look like anything you want. I heartily recommend getting one, even if it is simply because you can make that rifle into a pretty great little target rifle or you could turn it around and make it the best squirrel killer in the world. They're wonderful rifles and would make a great first gun if you ask me.
Sounds good to me!

I learned to shoot on my dads old single shot remington target master model 510 and would recommend it to anyone to learn on. I still have it and that's the gun I want to teach my kids to shoot on. I've never fired a straiter shooting rifle and if you want to learn how to shoot accuratly instead of just goin out with a semi auto and goin pop pop pop pop then a single shot is the way to go. I started shooting a lil younger than you but I was about your age the first time I went squirrel huntin. by 15 I was drivin tacks and doin it with iron sights. I suggest a single shot to learn on both for safety and accuracy. Or atleast a bolt action. Lookin back I'm glad I didn't learn on a semiauto. Do they still make the single shot target masters? Now that I think about it I wouldn't mind buying a new one and see if they still make em the same

You know I was just thinking about bolt action because I they force you to take it slow and make the accurate shot but I am unfamiliar with bolt action rifles is there any nice bolt action .22's For under $300? I am still of course not eliminating the 10 22 just exploring other options

cricket makes one of the best single shot 22s you can buy. I bought one for my wife and plan on buying one for my son when he gets older. they are about 100 dollars and extremely safe

Savage mark 2 was my first gun, and they not to expensive for a basic model. Or, you can get some of the better Target models and have a real fun time "making your shots count" in 1 ragged hole!

I'm sure it would be fine but I bet you could get something just as good for less money

Which is better? The savage mark ii or the marlin 925? I like the marlin 925 but everyone says the trigger is bad. So which is better out of those?

I have a marlin 25 which from what I can tell is the same gun as the 925 but older. Its a great gun and very strait shooter. That's what I used when I graduated from a single shot. I don't know about the savage but from my experience the marlin is great
