Hi guys. I love reading this blog and this is my first post! My son is turning 11 this year and he loves target shooting. I have taught him all the basics and he has a couple of airsoft pistols that he has learned the safety rules with. I want to step it up with him and want to buy him a .22 for his birthday but don't know if I should buy a rifle or a pistol. Any thoughts? I want to do this so that he and I can enjoy more range time together just having fun but also so that he can take the next step in enjoying and appreciating our second amendment right! Any ideas or insight to share? Also is it to early in this day and age to buy him his first firearm?
