I Want a 22
#1
OK haven't had a 22 since i was a kid. With ammo prices going bat shit crazy it's the best option to do more shooting and not have to take out a second mortgage. Going to be a rifle but just not sure if I should get a 10-22 or something in a lever action. What are you guys shooting and how well do they run? Don't want anything fancy just a good shooter.

If you want quiet shooting, go with the lever action.

.22 short CB's and super calibris are as quiet as a suppressed .22 semi auto rifle is....with no suppressor needed.

Quiets nice but not necessary, really want to here about the crappy rifle's not to buy.

The nice thing about a lever/bolt/pump with quiet rounds is you can shoot them anywhere...including your house

The only .22 on my never buy list is the Remington 597. Total piece of crap.

Wasn't planning on shooting it indoors. Rolleyes

Well maybe you ought to not roll your eyes, and think about how freaking handy it would be to have a weapon that you CAN fire in your house any time, day or night, whenever you feel like it. Smile

And besides, i listed for you the one piece of crap .22 i'd never buy, so it would still be on topic. Big Grin

I would agree with the above statement. I had one, hated it.

I now have a nice reliable bolt action Savage Mark II. If it malfunctions while cycling rounds then my arm must have fallen off.

The 597 is also probably the single most complicated .22 rifle to assemble and disassemble i have ever seen.

I have a Browning BL-22, i highly recommend it to anyone looking for a nice .22 rifle that will reliably feed and cycle EVERYTHING, from the weakest subsonics, to the most powerful hypervelocity rounds.

Have my home defense situation well covered. This is just a go shooting gun for cheap.

Checked out the bl-22 nice, but more than I can part with right now. around the 2to3 hundred dollar mark is in my wheel house.

I wasn't talking about home defense. I was talking about home plinking at 3am when its cold outside, or the range is closed. Big Grin
(if it's legal where you are, of course. Smile)
And of course there are all kinds of OFFENSIVE capabilities that are conferred with a silent weapon that you can't get with full power weapons.

There are situations where a .22 lever action loaded with .22 CB shorts (which will shoot clean through a 300 page paper back) is better than an AR loaded with Mk262 and packing the best upgrades/optics money can buy.

Are you a walking dead fan? Imagine if a few of them had 25 shot Browning BL-22 rifles and a few bricks of .22 CB's... Wink

Honestly, get whatever you want, but consider that a manually operated weapon gives you the maximum flexibility in ammunition types.
