I took my boys shooting today for the first time. My older son does GREAT with our Savage Model 7a--he's a natural and had a blast. My younger son really enjoyed shooting it too, but he currently lacks the hand strength to load magazines all afternoon or to charge the 7a (which has a small, very stiff bolt lever). And he would like something lighter too. I was thinking about a 22LR single shot like the Savage Rascal or Henry Mini Bolt for him. Any suggestions on those two, or other similar options? Or am I approaching this the wrong way?
