    Do not get a heritage rough rider. Spend the money on something he'll be proud to take ownership of one day. Get him a Buckmark or a Mk4

      Seconding the Buckmark or Ruger Mk 4.
      Buckmark works better out of the box, Ruger can be upgraded with aftermarket shit to be better long term. Ruger's easier to field strip in case of a problem.

      in my personal opinion, if you're gonna get a Ruger, get it in stainless.
      every blued ruger I've ever owned has been a mega rust magnet

        Yeah I'll second this. I'd take it a step further and say that most gun manufacturers theses days have shit-tier blueing. Stainless is the way to go

        it's even worse on the modern ones, they aren't blued, they're anodized aluminum
        really makes the gun feel cheap in your hand too, the stainless ones still feel right

          I'll take "cheap and rust-proof" over "can't touch it without oiling it immediately afterwards" any day. I own a New Vaquero that I literally cannot handle without aftercare. Granted, I have very rusty hands.

      Get your boy a Browning Buckmark. They're laser accurate, so it'll be a breeze teaching him marksmanship since the misses will all be on him. Every Buckmark I've shot has eaten through all sorts/qualities of .22 ammo without issue. Plus they're nice guns, which like said, your kid will appreciate one day

    You didn't mention how old, but Id disagree with the post above about avoiding a rough rider. I think thats the perfect fit here.

    Two main reasons:
    -It can take a wide range of 22 ammo unlike a semi Ruger. If he's still pretty little, you can start with 22 cb shorts that have virtually zero recoil or noise. Then you can work up as he gets comfortable through the options to ultimately the 22 wmr cylinder before transitioning into something else.
    -The slow operation mechanics push you to make the shots count. A reload isn't a quick mag swap, its a tedious process to top back off. I think that helps build fundamentals of not just mag dumping until you hit the target.

    Added bonus is its dirt cheap. If he hates it and gets bored in a year, you're maybe out $50 if you bought it brand new.

        He meant you could sell a year old Rough Rider for $50 less than you paid for it, meaning he'd only be out $50. Context clues man.

    I used to have a RugerMk IV 22/45 with a bull barrel and I loved it. Was stolen and I never replaced it, but will some day.

    Might I recommend the Grand Power CP22, a hidden gem in a sea of trash toy 22 pistols.

      the Brownings are fine, s&w 41 are classics, id start with a smaller gun, like the Brownings or an SR22 or P22 or the like. them being small will make them feel better in a small hand. I do love my TX22, but it's essentially a full size gun, like the 41, and things like a Glock 44 or 92(in 22).

        Great gun, but they're really expensive.

    Literally any 22 pistol will be fine for that.
    The internet has turned fricked up everyone's mind and paralyzed them with choice.
    50 years ago a father would go to the hardware store and buy whichever 22 they had and be plinking cans that afternoon. Now it is some major research project that requires crowdsourcing and endless browsing of spec sheet minutiae.

    Browning Buck Mark or Ruger Mark III/IV. I personally prefer the Ruger. Many models of both the Buck Mark and Mark III/IV are rather heavy, but the Buck Mark Challenge and Mark IV Standard are not.

    I personally have seen problems with the Ruger Wrangler revolver, and the Heritage Rough Rider while inexpensive is a somewhat crude gun with fixed sights that aren't always true. The Ruger Single-Six and Single-Ten revolvers are excellent, but for a kid learning and practicing a good semiauto target-ish style pistol like the Buck Mark or Mark IV will let your kid spend more time shooting with less gun manipulation. I wouldn't worry about recoil for a semiauto .22 - if your kid is old enough to hold the pistol, any ammo that will run through the gun will be fine.

    If *all* you want to do is plink cans and developing excellent shooting skills or marksmanship isn't a priority, a Heritage Rough Rider will probably serve you just fine. Up close, they're not often the prettiest gun. And you may need to adjust your point of aim if the sights are off. But you can buy 2 or 3 Rough Riders for the price of any model of Buck Mark or Mark IV. Replacement parts for Rough Riders are cheap, too. FYI, some states don't allow Rough Riders to be sold because the zinc frames can be destroyed easily in fire.

    luv me ruger, but yeah, depending on how young your kid is you might want to get a bolt action first. Rifles are generally safer to teach someone with.
