Thumbs up

Maybe a rem model 7 in 7-08... Just a thought, great little rifle/calibre combination, throw on a Burris or red field scope and you got a very respectable set up for any game animal from moose to mice!

Smile I gather the idea her is to produce a safe competent shooter?

We aren't trying to turn her into a big game hunter are we?

Here is what I'd do, let her pick, get a rifle that she can handle safely and that has very little recoil and noise so she can practice with it. Cheap ammo will encourage this.

I saw .410 in part of the post. I don't think that this is a shotgun for a small child, let her grow up a bit and pick one that fits and that she has a chance to hit something with.

IMO good luck. BTW with my daughter, who was younger, we used a cooey .22 that I sawed part of the stock off so that it would fit, and the shot gun was a 12 ga. with lightly loaded ammo.

She is actually a very good shot now, and a mother with 2 grandkids.

My daughter received her Great Grandma's model 94 30-30 (only highpower grandma ever owned and shot deer with). I wouldn't say there is any bad blood between the two of them. We're planning to swap out the original stock for a Boyd's though, as to not further damage the original.

My kids including my daughter have been shooting a 7mm-08 with no issues at all. No complaints what so ever. I put a bipod on it as well. My daughter weighs about 65 pounds is all and is a skinny rail. She shot her first deer this year and made a good 100 yard shot

My 12 and 14 yr olds will be hunting with my 1957 vintage Winchester 94, deadly accurate with its Williams FPS sights. My older boys killed their first deers with a Jungle Carbine and a 30-06 Savage. Nice thing about the lever beyond light recoil is it is very easy to carry. Young eyes usually do very well with a decent set of irons and no risk of "Scope brow".

Our youngest daughter started with reduced loads on the .243 at 9 years old. We have a Savage Ladyhunter which is a .4 MOA sweet shooter. I just don't care for the plastic retainer clip on the mag. Heard all good things about the Micro Midas too. See Brobee223's stuff on youtube.

If you have not got one as a back up rifle, camp rifle, truck rifle, do all rifle then you truly are missing out

for a deer rifle a decent choice might be a 6.5 Grendel in a Howa mini action, which is a sweet little deer rifle for a beginner. ammo might be a little hard to find, it isn't a popular round, but it might be exactly what your daughter is looking for.

She is not scared of the guns, but I do not want anything that causes here to be scared. This will then reck my plan of having a great hunting partner.

She has also expressed interest in a 20 gauge with light loads for grouse this fall. Going to be a fun and expensive shopping trip.
Where are you at?? If you're close enough I have access to a CZ 527 in 7.62x39 that she could try if you brought some hunting ammo.
