The Length & Weight of the Junior is OK, Length of Pull to Short and Adding Length w/Soft Butt Pad is No Good for fast Snap Shooting(Foul's on Clothing) Hunting Gray Squirrel's on the Run(Squirrels not Me) My Dad from about 5 or 6 Yrs old On made Me through My Gun up ready to Shoot w/Sight's lined up in My Eyes w/Target over & over & over at something on TV(Telly) till I could'nt  Get it wrong anymore. Latter out Plinking w/Dad no Targets only >Walking in Wood's Shoot that Rock Fast He would Yell, Bang! over & over & over till I Could,nt get it Wrong anymore. That,s was My Dad Charlie My best Friend.....In My Prayer's always.....Franky

Sounds like a top bloke & good times you had :)
The HW99s is rifle that would work for quick snap shooting if you can put up with 11ft/lb or so.
