Looking to pick up a good youth model .22lr bolt gun for my 7 year old midget. He's a small guy. Way too small for the Rossi pump .22 I want to give him later.

Let me know what you have.

Thanks. :D

I recently picked up a marlin 981t tube fed bolt action rifle. It's not large or heavy and would make agreat rifle to grow into. They run around $150.

I thought about the Cricket for my younger ones, but I felt they would outgrow it too fast.

Also, recently I picked up a BSA Sportsman Fifteen for $150.

I shoot my Chipmunk and I'm about 6 feet tall!

Even better, I want the pink version too:) I have an original made one from 1986 with factory soft case. Ades in Orange has a tricked out version for $200, has an exotic target stock.

The blue book mentions a lot of variations of the Chipmunk and the Crickett, I want the version in .410 bore I've never seen.

I hear that sometimes backpackers traveling light will use a Chipmunk.

Sorry I don't have a camera and ever notice that I don't allow others here to put pictures up of me? You will have to come to an Calguns shoot to witness me in action with the chipmunk:)
