I just bought the exact same youth size gun for my son. He's only 2 but I've got it stashed away for a few years until he is ready to start shooting with me I've shot all three barrels at the range and it is a fun and surprisingly accurate little gun. I put a 3-9 x 40 scope on the 243 barrel. Only thing you need extra is a hard case for it...the zippered case it comes with is a little flimsy. Otherwise a tremendous value (3 guns in one) for the $$. I'd jump on the price especially if it is new. I paid 329.00 for mine two months ago. That price is good even if it is in good used condition. Also, I believe Rossi currently has a $20.00 rebate if you purchase a new gun.
