    What about one of those gas strut type new air rifles.?
    No recoil and noise from a spring and i assume you will be starting him on bags etc before he can hold it up.

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!

    Bit of a worry alright. Mate i would have thought that you would be shouldering a shotgun not cruising the forum. Mind you the ducks are flying high over here at the moment.

    Good on ya Lloyd!

    Buy the best rifle you can afford and put it away until he's 16.

    I already have a Rifle put aside for my eldest Granson if he ever gets into Hunting

    He's only 3 months old ATM.

    It was my Fathers hunting rifle.

    The day before Dad died I told him I will keep it safe and pass it onto one of my Grandkids one day.

    He was very happy with that.

    Cheers
    Pete

    Buy him something quality but don't put it away. Use it then it will have a history. He can say this was dads and he used it a lot we used it together and now its mine.

    I Have no kids but my nephew will get my 20g Beretta 687 SP3 when he is old enough, in the mean time I ill be using it.

    I even purposely got some 28g inserts. Better than a 410 to learn with!

    Have no kids of my own to spoil so lucky him.! In fact eventually he might even get all my rifles / shotguns and assorted stuff
