All right folks, I just joined the group and have my 1st question. I have been a life long shooter, and also am an MP in Afghanistan. My oldest boy will be 11 next month and I want to get him his 1st gun. I am partial to the 10/22, but is there something better out there for a kid who can shoot well, but still is too new to shooting for a larger caliber long gun? My 1st was a Remington Model 80 single shot my Granny gave me when I was 7. Still have it, but my boy deserves something a little better quality. Any suggestions?
