Comfort is a big part of control when learning.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

The shot gun rifle combos are marginal with both barrels. A real 22 that you can replace the stock on easily if it needs cutting like a savage 22 bolt rifle or 10/22 would be a good start as it can grew with them and stay with them for life . No little kid .22's. If big enough a real 410 shot gun may not have to much recoil when design for children. Mossberg has several micro sized 410 shotguns that are scaled for kids. 9 year old could shot those fine with lite bird shot loads.- 505 super bantum weight 5 1/4lbs and have a 12" lenghth of pull. How well it fits can help with how well a child can shot them.

UN, that's a good price when you consider the need to add in the transfer fee.

The Henry .22LR lever action is 100$ less than the M6, has very nice

furniture, and a very appealing Western style most kids will enjoy.

IDK, but JMHO- perhaps the terms "scout rifle" and "younger kid"

may not be a responsible mix?

Otherwise, if you give the charge in question a bolt-action 22LR

with a small scope, you'd probably maximize their potential, while

giving everyone else a very nice small game fallback...
