So I'm toying with the idea of buying a Ruger #1 in .308 Win for my 13 year old. He has been cursed with the genes that make him height challenged, at least so far. He's right around 5' tall now but I'm sure he still has some growing to do. I bought him a Savage last year that has a shortened stock. The gun is certainly accurate, but the rest of the quality lets just say is lacking. Well he's now tall enough to shoot my Tikka in .223 and he's only going to get taller. He has shot rounds in the Savage up to 165gr and it takes quite a few shots before he starts to feel it on his shoulder. So caliber is not too concerning. So I'd like to get him something new now and also something perhaps that I'd like to shoot. In the end all of my guns will be passed on to my two boys, but I'd like to get him something special that he will keep all of his life and hopefully will be filled with memories. I know it's a bit expensive, but I'm giving thought to a #1 in .308 for him. I like the idea of a single shot that will hopefully teach him to be that much more disciplined with his first shot. And I've always liked the simple and elegant #1 though I've never owned one. What do you guys think?
