It's time to get the kids out shooting. I have been looking at everything from the single shot Crickets to 10/22's. I don't want it to be too big and heavy. Optics are fine but it must still have the iron sights, they are going to learn to shoot irons before they are allowed to use optics (they are also going to learn to drive a manual transmission before they are allowed to drive an auto). I will not pay over $150. Let me know what you have. Thanks.
