Best Features in a Youth .22 This Savage Rascal makes a great starter rifle for young or small stature children! The length of pull is only 11-1/4"! Most youth rifles have around a 12" length of pull. All of the stuff is sized for little hands but may still be operated by an adult without too much trouble. The Savage Accu-Trigger is wonderful! This rifle is noticeably easier and safer for a child to operate than any of the youth .22s I observed. PLEASE BE VIGILANT ABOUT SUPERVISING CHILDREN/YOUTH IN FIREARMS USE! GUN SAFETY IS TAUGHT BY THE NRA AND YOUR LOCAL CONSERVATION OFFICERS. Here are some good things this rifle has: 1. The rifle "cocks" when the bolt is lifted (no accidental discharges from a "cocking knob" or a "cocking ring". 2. This rifle may be unloaded without firing the cartridge - just open the bolt! 3. Did I mention the great Accu-Trigger? 4. The Rascal only weighs about 2-3/4 lb. 5. It comes with sling swivel studs for easy sling attachment. 6. The receiver is threaded for a scope base if you ever decide to mount optics of some sort. 7. A peep sight encourages the young to learn fundamental rifle skills before graduating to optics. The peep sight is not difficult to adjust. 8. The Savage Rascal stock comes in a bunch of different colors. I chose pink for one of my children. So, you may be thinking with all of this good stuff why the 4 star rating instead of 5 stars? Well, I don't like the fact that after the rifle has been fired and before the bolt is opened you cannot push the "safety" to "safe." This is not an unsafe condition but I personally like to be able to "turn" the safety "on" or "off" at any time. I think this is the best single-shot youth .22 on the market! October 23, 2013

A: 
I know it's been a while since you posted, but I have a suggestion. If your grandson's vision is the same in both eyes, teach him to shoot right handed. I am right handed with a dominant left eye so as a boy I taught myself to shoot left handed. The only reason I would suggest having a leftie go rightie if possible when shooting is it is far easier buying guns and accessories.

A: 
no the smallest caliber i would recommend for deer and pronghorn would be a 243 and that's at the low end. I use a 30-06 but i see that you were looking at a youth model. i grew up using a rossi break action 243. caliber rifle to hunt deer and i still own it, it works great i have killed 5 deer with it dropping every single one.
