Cameron, 13, has been shooting my Savage MKII. He loves it and says likes bench better than Bullseye with the Pistol. My LGS has a 22-XT BV at $240 out the door. He has his own money but I told him I would kick in $100 for him and give him the Simmons 24X for it also. He is a really good shot. I let him shoot Eley Target and he was holding .5"- groups at 50 yds. He says, and I believe him, he could do better with his own gun. I showed him the USBR 50 yard target we would shoot in matches with the 0.10" bull and told him he would have to ....... I can see now him wanting his own front rest, rear bag and a different scope. Also trigger kit and shooting up my match ammo ..... Will get expensive but FUN. At least he will have something that will last a A LONG, LONG time instead of that junk he usually spends his money on and 2 week later nothing to show for it.
