Much safer to start them with a single-shot... and after that, move to something mag-fed, but a bolt- or lever-action, so they have to do something to chamber each round. Kids and auto-loaders... not so much, until they're fairly mature and have some solid experience.

Another vote for the CZ scout, here...
Never let anything mechanical know you're in a hurry.
