If it's a stepping stone to bigger guns about the only one I've handled that felt right was the ruger 22/45. Of course there are a lot of great options out there. Another good one is the browning buckmark.

Wouldn't rule out a Ruger revolver. Simplistic and if you go the single action route, it helps teach patience as well.

I have a Walther P22 that is pretty fun and reliable to shoot. I dont really shoot pistols all that often so it doesn't get shot that much.

Nice small pistol to check out is the Ruger Bearcat. Bought one with the birds head grips and my girls love it.

Its likely goin to get dropped and beat up, go buy a cheap heritage from academy. Get the model that also comes with the 22mag cylinder.

I'm a fan of the old High Standard double nine. I have a couple of them and would like a few more. Good shooting pistols, that's what my oldest kids started on and shot well.

Buckmark or Ruger Mk1, Mk2 semi-auto or their single action revolver are all great 22's.

Buckmark URX or new Smith and Wesson Victory

start them close, teaching sight picture and trigger control. Once the understand how to use the sights correctly, move on to fun plinking targets, just like us, kids get bored shooting at paper, they like the reward of something happening with a well placed shot...

Ruger Bearcat is a nice smaller single action. If you can find one of the old model ones they are light weight as well
