      If it a rifle I would go with a 25-06, you can use it for varmites up to deer. Shotgun I agree with HandT09. You will have both for years, and can hunt just about anything.

        Rifle: Rem 700 VTR it has a full size stock with a short barrel it is cool.

        Shotgun: Rem 870 it's great.

            First gun or not? 410 or Ruger 10/22. Next gun either a 20 or 12 depending on size (Remington 870 works well) and 25-06 also in Remington.

              For his first hunt I would go with a 375. For around the house 22 single shot.

                For hunting or shooting? What will he shoot/hunt? Is he already familiar with guns? Shotgun or rifle?

                  If it is a rifle for deer hunting, I would say a .243, its got enough kick to take down that trophy buck, but it is not going to kill the kid either.

                    The Browning Micro Hunter in 7mm-08. Pity they don't chamber it in .260 anymore. The Micro Hunter is scaled to fit smaller hunters and the weight and balance are near perfect.
