I've read copies that I've picked up art SHOT shows. It's a fine magazine that tends to be geared towards competitive shooting. But, that's not a bad thing, is it? I would definately get a copy or two and see if the youngin' in question is interested in a subscription. You should also look at the NRA's magazine for young shooters. I forget what it's called but, it's not bad either.
