    Just got my son his Christmas present today. Can't wait to see his face when he opens his gifts. What age were you given your first .22 rifle? When did you give your child his/ hers first .22?

    That's a fantastic gift! I was 13 when my Dad gave me my first .22, a Belgian Browning T-Bolt.

    #1 DAD! Awesome gift! I was 15 when I got a savage mark 2. I bought myself with my birthday $. It came with a 3x9x50 Readhead rifle scope. You could shoot a gnats eye at 50 yards.

    I received a Ruger 10/22 Deluxe Sporter for my twelfth birthday. We gave my 12 year old daughter a Ruger 10/22 with pink Hogue stock for Christmas last year. That digital camo is sweet.

    I was 10 when i got my first .22, but my son will be 8 in march... But he is very responsible for his age and knows what can happen when you missuse a weapon. When i was 13 i was shot in the eye with a bb that ricocheted off a wall. Now i only have one eye. So my son knows what can happen when you "play" with guns. And i know he will be responsible with it more than i was at his age.

    Yah the camouflage was a factory color that one of my local gun shops had in stock. It was like $220.

    Very cool. He is going to be stoked.

    I'm 28 and just got my first .22 rifle. Of course a 10/22. I wish I got started earlier in firearms.

    Check out CCI Mini Mags. They have been great in mine so far.

    Got a Remington 597 for my 11th b-day. Never jammed throughout the thousands of rounds I've fired

    I got six different types of ammo tonight and the CCI were mostly what i bought, i grabed like 500 rounds of that and like 100 each of the other brands. Either way they will be used in his rifle or the other handgun my oldlady wants.

    Great present. I'm debating on getting my son a 1022. He will be 10 just after the new year. I'm 28 and still have never owned a 22. Maybe he will share :)

    Awesome gift I got my first 22 when I was 11 and wish I still had it to this day. Really don't think there's Andy way to top a good 22 as a starter first gun know just give him a few boxes of shells and a place to shoot and enjoy teaching him how to safely Handel a firearm it's a lesson he will remember and enjoy the rest o his life and something he will share with his children on there first time shooting there first 22.

    play the victim, be the victim

    Now i just gotta see what ammo works best with the rifle and buy a whole bunch of it. And i must say a box of 50 rounds cost anywhere between $2-6, and thats alot cheaper than ammo for my Ruger .357 or my oldladys 9mm Glock.

    I was 18 when I got my first 22. My son received his when he was 10. He is now 14 and "owns" 7 guns and wants more all the time. I think I have created a gun nut.
