    My seven year old daughter is showing interest in learning how to handle firearms. I'm planning on getting her a .22.

    She is very small for her age.

    I've been looking at the Henry mini-bolt for her, but would like to hear suggestions from folks on what they would say was a good choice.

    Thanks.

    A friend bought the Henry mini bolt for his daughter. I like that little rifle. Seems very well made, the fiber optic sights are easy to see and the stainless finish plus composite stock make for a very durable little shooter.

    My 5 year old loves her Savage Cub. I cut down the stock and restained it for her. You probably won't have to do anything for a 7 year old. The Henry would have been my second choice. Both of them are significantly better than the Chipmunk/Crickets. Might want to take a look at the CZ offerings as well.

    savage, marlin, cricket, cz, and rogue all make exceedingly fine small rifles.

    My vote is for the CZ scout.
