@Captainjack88 find him a lil 22 S/L/LR bolt action,single shot, Savage/Stevens used to make em, still a ton of em floating around cheap.
Ive gifted em to my grands and god children, lil singleshot teaches em good shot discipline from a early age. youngest ive gifted,4/5 oldest 7 (her mom was a worrywart)
cci CB 22 short are still available, found em for 100 rnds for $10.95 low noise, no recoil then they can move up to LR as they get older.


if ya get em somethin new, something like this, the SAVAGE RASCAL but it is .22LR only $149
aahhhhhhh many memories to be made here…

Hey Buck,
Winchester
Model 67A
I have never shot it.
This is the shape it was in when I got it.
I have kept it oiled over the years. The past year as I have started this new hobby I took the bolt completely apart and broke a spring. Order and install new one. Learn a good lesson there!
This will make a great starter rifle for my Grandson.
Especially sense it came from my mother.

Lucky young dude you have there. I’m over 50 and I am still looking forward to getting custody of my grandmother’s 22 short gallery gun. I’ve only recently grown into the maturity that will allow me to cherish it the way my grandmother did.

I mention this mostly 'cause I think the bright colored plastic rifles are worth considering on 2 points:. 1) how old will be old enough to treat it with the care required to preserve it? And, 2) what happens if his little brother or sister is the one that really appreciates firearms or family tradition?

I am suggesting you might want to consider teaching them on starters that are replaceable. Letting them shoot your mom’s gun with you while you’re at the range will make it really obvious if they are ready to appreciate the history over the bright and shiny.

I do have my first 22 (a Glenfield 25 box mag, bolt gun) and it bears lots of scars from the carless way I handled it as a child.

Milton,
Wow :v:
I have read your post 3 times✌️
Thinking, thinking, thinking…
What’s a poor boy to do now…
Good advice, I love it✌️
I have some time to figure this out.
He is only 4 DAYS OLD :rofl:
I will get this rifle in top notch shape, not only for him but for me and my Mom.
With some help from the Brotherhood I will learn about how to refurbish a stock and it will look outstanding :v::v:
I’m still on cloud 9, life is good :v::v::v:
