I too am a believer of paying it forward but why give a kid a gun that kicks like a mule and has (as you say ) other flaws that may set them up for a bad experience. I've seen you shoot it and yes it did have some issues.I hope that the new owner can make some use of it as it is a good unexpected gift . We live , we learn, and hopefully don't make the same mistakes twice. Always buy the best you can afford and hope for the best.
didn't say give the gun to a kid. i said in turn do a good thing like get a kid started in hunting that normally maybe wouldn't hunt.
yup like i said, bought a cva had a bad experience with them and i pass that info on. others may disagree but that doesn't change my experience or opinion.
