I want to pick up a gun for my grandson who will be 13 yrs. old next season for varmint/deer. He's not big for his age so something in a low recoil caliber and relatively short LOP would be appropriate. We'll be hunting in northern NY woods 100yds.or less will be the norm. I like the idea of a single for safety reasons and non-intimidating starter. Would a Marlin or Winchester pump in 30/30 be a decent starter?
