Another vote for the RWS-line.

I've got a nice 48-B and I love it. I've killed a possum and a raccoon with mine. One-shot each. It might be a little big for a young guy, but a 45 or 34would be better for him. And make sure you get him a scope that's rated for the reverse-recoil of spring-guns.

I'd stay away from the pump-guns. They're not consistant, and a pain to pump, especially if you're shooting for acouple hours.

The Weihrauch line is hard to beat for a quality air gun.I own the HW97 laminate myself.

Has anyone tried the viper express shotgun?
It looks like a cool concept but i wonder if it actually works.

I have a RWS 34. I like it a lot. It may be a little hard to cock for a 10 year old but he'll love to shoot it.

Last yeat I got my 14 year old son a RWS 34 Panther in .22 caliber. Mounted a Centerpoint 3-9x 32mm scope on it. Very accurate set up, and the .22 caliber does a number on small game. See attached links on scope and rifle. I highly recommend both of them.

My favorite that I've ever owned is a daisy 1000. Shoots .177, its a break barrel so you don't have to pump. It has ended the life of many a squirrel and rabbit. Hell I even snipe doves wit it
