As a beginner to rifles (and firearms), I am preparing to get my kids to share my newly discovered passion for shooting. And so there is so much I don't know but have been learning thanks in large part from websites like this. Should I buy a youth 22LR rifle to start my kids off with such as the Savage Rascal 22LR rifles or just a compact barrel (18") regular adult rifle such as the Ruger American 22LR or the Savage Mark II 22LR rifle? My daughter and son are still too young (3 & 1 years old) but I've started thinking about this since they grow up so fast. I don't see hunting in my future also so this will strictly be for plinking/target shooting. Another question I have is whether I should buy two youth 22LR rifles (one for each, maybe a pink one for my daughter) or just the one adult one and let them share? Any thoughts and your experience would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for all your answers in advance.
