I bought the Savage cub last year for my kids. Has the peep sight on the rear. This has been a very good rifle and being a single shot it makes my kids concentrate on hitting what they are aiming at with the first shot. (Otherwise when they miss it the other ones turn and they hate that)!!!! When they get mad and say it isn't shooting right I take it away and pick out a p-dog at 50-60 yds away and knock it over. Then I hand it back and they don't say a word.

If it was my son his first gun would be a single shot 22 (learn to hit what you aim for the first time)

Really? I've had mine since I won it off of my grandfather when I was 8 and have had no trouble what so ever. It is my favorite plinking rifle.

EDIT: Ha, just read your post, glockfire.

Default Three

1--Any of the AR-7 survival rifles-- the ones that disassemble and can be stored in the stock. I like the idea, but I've seen and fired three of them, and two were unreliable with many malfunctions. They didn't feel good either, in my hands. They weren't fun to plink with, and weren't as accurate as most other .22 rifles.

2-- Phoenix Arms Rangemaster-- I had one for 6 months and sold it for a slight loss. It was not reliable, and it had weird and un-natural safety features. I bought it because it felt good in my hand and it was light. And it turned out to be an accurate little pistol that would shoot tight groups near the point-of-aim on the sights. But it jammed a lot.

3-- NAA .22 and .22 magnum mini-revolvers with the tiny little grips and the 1" or 1.5" barrels. They're hard to hit anything with, and the recoil (muzzle flip) is severe. But I love their larger versions, such as the "Black Widow," and other models that have bigger grips and longer barrels (3" is so much better than 1.25 inches!) and good sights.

P.S. Longer barrels = higher velocity bullets. It's a significant difference between an inch and three inches.

the Raven is cheap and heavy for its size but accurate: the barrel and receiver are one unit, much like the Ruger .22 which helps to make it accurate.

Default Two

Those AR-7 survival rifles, the ones where the barrel and action can be stored in the huge hollow plastic stock, are lousy. Inaccurate and unreliable, in my experience.

The Phoenix Arms .22 semi-auto pistol, which looks good and fits my hand well, and only sells for $125 brand new, is not reliable. And it has some really weird controls and safety features that have never been seen on any other handgun (and I hope they are never used again on any future guns, either).
(P.S. The Phoenix Arms Rangemaster is accurate. It's just not reliable.)

Default Walther P22 POS

The P22 has got to be one of the worst firearms ever built, IMHO. I have one but I find the plastic/zinc combination a recipe for FAILURE! I'm selling mine and sticking with my STEEL High Standards and Rugers.

My first handgun was a Heritage arms .22 mag. It was fairly decent for a beginner's handgun. I also still have my first rifle, it was a chipmunk .22 out of Oregon. I have fired thousands of rounds through it and it is still holding up almost 20 years later.
