I recently got my son a 452 Scout for his 11th birthday (Sept.6, so he hasn't received it yet), and I'm looking for a viable option for the sights. Part of me thinks it would be best for him to learn to shoot with iron sights (this is his first gun), but as you know the sights on the Scout leave much to be desired. It looks to me like the sights aren't easily removed/changed (without an expensive trip to a gunsmith) which leads me to think the next option would be a scope if I'm going to spend the money anyway. If he was going to shoot from a given range, I think we could settle for what the scout comes with, but it sure would be nice to have something he could easily adjust from 25 - 100 yards. As far as scopes go, I know absolutely NOTHING about them and wouldn't even know where to begin to find one that is appropriate. Should I go ahead and scope it or find another solution to replace the irons somehow ? Any thoughts or suggestions ???
