Like the Rascal, bought the CZ Scout
It uses the same mags as my CZ-455. I don't think the extra safety features on some of the others actually do any good. I understand the Cricket's pull-to-cock knob actually makes it hard to unload if you have a cease-fire called and can't just shoot.
It's a bolt action. If not ready, don't chamber a round....it's not going to get away with a shooter like a semi-auto could. And being able to step up from the single-shot adapter to a 10-round mag when your kid is ready is a nice feature, I think.
