1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    Ruger 10/22, fixed 4 power scope. This package can be had at most WALMARTS for about $250.

    I've seen the 1022s for as little as $189. locally here in Orygun. Another possibility is the Winchester Wildcat, a bolt action, slender, and beautiful .22 rifle. My grandson and I went shopping for a .22 and he was sold on the auto chucker Ruger. I told him to keep his thoughts open to a bolt action or pump while we checked the possibilities. When he spotted the Wildcat, he was permanently in love and he's even more excited after a couple of sessions at the range. The only hang up for me is that the gun is a product of Russia. But everyone that sees it is really impressed. We paid $239 unless I'm even more forgetful than I thought.....Bob Dodd

    p.s. The Wildcat comes with 4 magazines, shoots long rifle only, good safety, removable bolt, rough but real checkering, driftable sights for windage and an adjustment for elevation, and the grand boy just has more fun operating all the gizmos for safety and cleaning.

    You can check in to a Remington 512 it a tube fed gun and will shoot 22 shorts, longs and long rifle in any order you want to shoot them and my kids love to shoot it.

    Don't have one for sale, but I've had good luck with clip fed Marlin and Glenfields. They are basic 22's that can be had for $50-75 used. Add a Bushnell 4X scope and you have a groundhog killer out to 100 yards. I've killed probably over 100 groundhogs with my vintage model. Still have it, put tens of thousands of rounds through it, and it will still print 2" groups at 100 yards. Bought it used in 1972 for $19.95. Just about any entry level 22 will do, as I've bought and sold others, and they perform just as well. I do like the Bushnell Custom scopes though. Very clear with a full field of vision, and low cost. I've set up others with these same guns and scopes for pest control, and have never had any issues. 22mag is more noise.

    Check the pic, circa 1975 me on the left. I was 15. Whistled on a 22 Hornet shell, we both counted to three and fired. I said, "did you shoot?", and he said, "did you shoot?", at the same time. 125 yards. Both shots through the groundhogs chest were 3/4" apart. Ahh memories.

    I am going to cast a vote for the Savage Classic bolt action .22. It is as accurate out of the box as custom rifles costing three times as much and has a handsome walnut stock with a black fore end cap that is a real knock out. It is around 350 bucks./

    The Remington 597 is a good semi auto gun. If you buy it used Remington will not exchange the first two generations of magazines for 3rd generation. The 3rd generation mags work extremely well, but first two generations were junk.

    Marlin 39A lever action, over 100 years and only minor changes, classic looks, shoots s, l, lr, can easily mount a scope. Teaches youngsters to aim rather than spray and pray. If it was good enough for Annie Oakley, it should be great for your grandson. Win. 22/94 would be a close second.

    +3 for the CZ-452. Mine shoots extremely good groups with almost any ammo, some of course better than others. Hap

    Add'l comments: I agree with the comment that the young fellers tend to blast away with the semi-autos and it's just that much harder to convince them to learn the proper safety and skill techniques. Regarding the "youth" guns, we found most of them were marginally right sized for the 11 yr old (and not husky or tall) I was dealing with and it was obvious that the "youth" guns would be way too small way too soon. Then, I too, would have leaned heavily toward the CZ bolt action or the Marlin levers, even the Henrys but the cost factor for a knock around first .22 rifle for a young fellow just couldn't be justified in at least our case. This young lad had saved the $190 he thought it would take to get into a Ruger 10/22 and then fell in love with the Russian Winchester - that's hard to swallow - so Grandad and his mom pitched in the extra $50 bucks to get what he wanted and appreciates all the more. More food to consider.....breakemall....Bob Dodd.

    EE, Not trying to start an arguement, and I do own a CZ 22 rifle along with a few Anschutz rifles, but did you ever hear of anybody using a CZ rifle in the olympics? Even a Cooper or Kimber?

    Get him a Cooper. They are worth the money and it's a rifle that he will hand down for generations.

    The old Remington Nylon guns are fun to shoot, and a bit of a collectible.

    I used to have a Ruger 77/22 in .22LR. It was quite accurate and very easy to mount a scope to with their supplied rings. .....Rick
