Hi everybody! I'm new here, looking for advice or direct link to the topic -

With current virus thing around all gun stores are closed(or expected to be closed for public)?
I'm looking where I can buy a 22lr youth bolt action rifle(cz/henry/other) (i've got plenty of time to train my kid now)- if this is still possible.
Any dealer in WA who can process this purchase/paperwork?
Thanks!

Welcome to the forum! :thumbsup2:

So, you’re already proficient with guns, and can train your kid? That’s great!

What do you already own, and where do you shoot?

Thanks! Yes I do have experience, newbie to the forum, not to the gun-theme :wink05:

I don't have much in my safe currently, but still keep my 10/22 ruger, few berettas and CZs.
Indoor ranges are currently closed, and as we know national parks are closed as well for public access, still have few places "in wild" - but need to check if they are accessible now. Would appericate any hints or advices on "where I can shoot now?"

Welcome.
I'd start with a 10/22 or CZ.
I bought my youngest a Chipmunk .22 when he was about 10.
Outgrew it in a year.

It was a transition model, laminated stock, had a "Davey Cricket My First Rifle" case (they bought out Chipmunk)

Cute little gun, I shot it before, my brother shot a rabbit with one a few years ago when we were camping.

Not sure where to buy one right now, but my daughter likes her Savage Rascal. Got it because it's simple, no striker to pull back. Just open the bolt and slip in a round.

HIya. Might be helpful to know where in WA you are in order to help you.

So first, Welcome to WaGuns!

Next how big of a kid?

Second, I second the Savage Rascal .22 over the one you have in mind.

It does typically cost about $30-$50 more but you will appreciate it versus cocking the firing pin back every time.

Plus your child will totally be able to transition to any bolt action. You get a better trigger, better working gun.

I started my 4 year old on it and he was small for his age. So size and fit is extremely important.

You could also get a youth stock or an adjustable stock for your 10/22. I've seen similar youth stocks here on WAGUNS for $30 or so. Personally I'm getting the Hunter X22 stock for mine. I can set it up for my boy (6yoa) and add the spacers when I want to shoot it without him.

I went this route and would recommend starting with Ruger Charger (10/22 pistol) and then upgrade to be modified to use brace. This can greatly give the flexibility of length of pull (LOP) (fit for your child).

Only issue I found is my son at 5 wasn’t strong enough to manipulate the 10/22 gun completely by himself. And to know my son... he wanted to do it and knew how but wasn’t able.

I eventually moved him to a dedicated .22 AR with adjustable stock. I went S&W M&P 15-22 Easy LOP and easier to use. But he blows though Ammo like a machine gun.

That's actually great "plan B" if I wont get youth bolt-action rifle, I will definetly buy second adjustable stock for my 10/22. Thanks for the links!

*Actively looking for Savage Rascal/cz 457(455, 452 if lucky enough)or any other "classic bolt action" rifle. Will check dealers first

Ya, that was annoying, the cocking piece.
There is a fix to make it cock automatically, but the kids grew up and don't shoot .22 anymore, so I haven't messed with it.
