My son\'s first rifle For Christmas I got my (six year old)son a chipmunk 22lr, after much careful consideration, so far he is showing great responsablity. I know it is not a long-range rifle but he has to start sometime and somewhere, and it is really the frist time that I really had his attention other than last year when he got his B.B. rifle in which the length of pull was way to long and he lost interest after eight or ten months because he was not very accurate with it. I feel that with this he is more likely to enjoy esp. with the shoot-n-see targets and the sqirrels once I mount his scope.
