Today, I took my 10 yr. son on the shooting range. We started with regular Ruger 10/22. We spent a brick of ammo and I was amazed to see that he was shooting consistently in 2" groups at 50 yards using shooting bench. This was his first time and I think he has some natural talent there. I'm wondering if I've to teach him professionally with some group for competition, what rifle I should buy for him ? Which one is best shooter and which one is economical and best shooter?
Thanks in advance

The best .22 is the Anschutz olympic grade target rifles - they run around $2,000 depending on options.
However, many gun clubs have junior riflry programs. He can get some pretty decent coaching and they will usually supply decent target rifles to start with. It might be a good idea to let him get started, progress for a while without pressure, and see where he wants to go with it.
Then there are a couple of choices short of the Anschutz rifles.
The Savage Model FVT is a fine choice. The Mark I is single shot, the Mark II has a box magazine. Check the rules for whatever competition he gets involved in.
A number of years ago Marlin made a target rifle, you can occasionally find one used.

Competition is shot with iron sights - that's why you need a rifle with a decent peep sight.
