Being the local heretic, here's a wild suggestion: Gamo G-Force Tactical youth air rifle. In .177 caliber.  It's a spring action break barrel that comes with open peep sight in the AR15 style, sized for youth shooters, bottle-cap accurate at 25 yards with 4x scope and pop can accurate using open sights at same distance. Cocking effort in the mid teens, solid with lots of Picatinny rails for adding bells and whistles as he grows. My 16-year-old grandson loves his; constantly competes with me in plinking and 10-meter shooting. Had this gun out tonight at 25 yards with open sights and was hitting pop cans set end-on without sweat.
