My 9 y/o daughter is asking for a .22 rifle for Christmas (warm my heart!). I know there are some pink colored youth .22s I have seen around, but I would rather buy her a good quality .22 bolt action starter. She has shoot my CZ .22 with me, but the length of pull is definetly too long for her. So I know I need a youth model.

Girly colors are a bonus, but, by no means required.  What do you guys recommend/have experience with?

Thanks

Eta: My younger daughter (7) will also learn on this rifle too, so youth model is definetly required.

Savage Cub. My daughter has one. It is very accurate, and it even comes with the Accutrigger. I have a red dot on it, and at 50 yds off the bench, she can knock down pop bottles all day long with it.



This Christmas, she has talked me into building her a 22 AR. I'm waiting for Magpul to release the pink Moe furniture now.

CZ scout, Probably the finest quality in it's price range that I can think of.  
Marlin 25Y or what ever they call it now, or the savage equivalent.

You can't go wrong with a Scout, comes with a single shot adapter.  Buy a few 5 or 10 rounders and your GTG. Old world craftmenship & deadly accurate. Actually a fun size for an adult too.

I have a little daughter, but she is years from shooting. I was wondering what everyone thinks of going straight to a 10/22 compact or youth? That's what I am leaning towards.

Gig, can you tell me more about this .22 AR? I will probably start her on a about action, but I am curious about which .22 AR upper is gtg.

Thanks

I think this one is in definite contention for me.  I already have a CZ 452 Style .22, and I love it.  I am going to shop for it this weekend, so we will see what I pick up.  I will post it up once I get it.

Any of you guys use a bipod to teach your daughters how to shoot?  Bench rest? Or just have them hold it?  I did bench rest with bags on our first outing, and had her busting clays at .25 & .50yds.  I think that is optimal distance, I want to make it fun for my daughter.  

I am so friggin' excited to buy her a gun for Christmas!  I never thought after having two daughters that they would ant anything beyond Barbies and American Girl Dolls!

ETA:  Any youth models with threaded barrels?  I am going to order my first silencer this week!

This is my back up to the CZ, I think.  Anyone, have thoughts to any .22 youth rifles I should avoid?

My son had a Cricket when he was like 8 . It fit him well and he liked it . There maybe beteer rifles out there but this one was nice and compact and worked great for us . he's 17 now ( how time flies ) and he says he's gonna keep it for his kids .      ;)
