Hello, ladies and gents. Calling out to all you firearm fanatics. I'm going to take you back to the proverbial first day of kindergarten. Please bear with me. I know a little about knives, not so much about rifles. I'm looking for a starter rifle, a plinker really, that shoots inexpensive ammo for my 18 yo son. He figured a basic .22 would be fine. He started down the Ruger route with its greatly modifiable rep, then realized it kind of defeated the purpose. Now he's considering a plain jane bolt action that focuses on reliability and accuracy. Any recommendations, including other calibers, would be appreciated. BTW, he outshoot a his uncle with a 30.06 when he goes hunting with him in Canada. He also wants to learn to strip it down and properly care for it as well.
