need help picking a .22 caliber rifle

No problem at all...I probably should have been a little less lazy and been more specific.

Nice blades btw... maybe next year I can afford one.

need help picking a .22 caliber rifle

I figured I would toss in my 2 cents worth, also. I might suggest a 22 magnum...still very cheap, accurate and reliable and atleast in my home state of Maine its legal to hunt deer with(Not that I personally would, but could if I wanted) Just a thought.

Most .22 rifles will last a lifetime, unless you put tens of tousands of rounds thru them a year each year every year.... Most people who think their barrel is shot out just have a severe leading problem that can be fixed by proper bore maintainence.

Just buy yourself a used bolt action if you only shoot occasionally, I prefer old Remington bolt actions myself.

Ruger 10/22

Good ol ruger 10/22 will serve you well. Plus if you ever get bored with it you can change just about.... EVERYTHING on the rifle. Can make it a tack driver or a nice lightweight sporter. Extremely easy DIY and fun to shoot!

22's

The ruger 10/22 is great gun. Cheap, fun, and acurate. You will never shoot out the barrel. I actually hunt with my Anshutz 22 It's a fun light bolt action great for small game. I have a .17 and never use it. I think there garbage. The bullet is just to small and it has no stopping power even though its quite accurate
