    Daughter for Christmas - What do you reckon?

    So my eighteen year old has taken a shine to CAS at the pistol club and a couple of weeks ago she wiped the floor with me particularly with a lever action .22 so I am thinking

    What do you reckon guys? Octagonal barrel is the shizz.

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!

    Used a mates Henry and it was a bit of a laugh but I don't think they have the best reputation for accuracy, maybe ask @mupgripz; which lever 22 he would recommend?

    I guess if sticking with open sights ultimate accuracy potential isn't going to be a critical factor though!

    I seem to remember those don't have a very good reputation.
    Think @mudgripz would have a fair idea which one is best, he seems to have tried almost every .22 out there.

    She would likely only use it for CAS so open sights at twenty five metres maximum.

    Several years ago I saved my pennies and treated myself to a new Henry HOO1 lever. Nicely finished, ultra smooth action, very slim barrel. Took it to range with new scope and it managed at least 4 shots quite accurately before groups opened right to 2-3 inches at 50m - sprayed them everywhere when warm. Did I mention it had a slim barrel - heat distortion problems. Went back to the shop immediately. Not recommended. The Golden Boy has a heavier octagonal barrel which might disperse heat better. Might. Still some risk.

    Best lever 22s are the Winchester 9422 (an absolute little jewel), Ruger 96/22 - a wee sleeper and great little hunter with no real weaknesses, Miroku/Browning, and Marlin 39. All good - just a matter of preference and which ones turn up on sale. I think Gerbs had a 96 for sale recently.

    She was taught very well how to hold a rifle by the "know alls" on the forum at the Sika show! Thought Rushy was gonna end up with an older [much] son in law, but she is a very clever lady and learnt very quickly!
