    I feel that the 10/22 is the best affordable .22 made but I would choose a bolt action rifle to teach gun safety. A semi-auto adds a bit of "what if" into the equation.

    savage makes a really nice very accurate bolt action .22, tightest grouping i ever shot was with one. punched out a slug on paper with all rounds touching from a clip, open sights, about 100 yds out, pretty much fresh outta the box. it was a friends rifle but he didnt upgrade it at all. he was butthurt as i outshot him.

    I have had two 39A's and they are awesome little guns. I sold the first one to my buddy because he and his boy both fell in love with it as soon as I got it and I fell into a deal on the second one at a steal of a price. The hard part is finding one of these guns in good shape that doesn't bring $4-500 or more these days. The guns made prior to the 80's are very sought after with the ones from the 50's even more so. The current model they make is not the same as its forefathers though as I have read tons of threads about problems with them over on www.rimfirecentral.com which is an excellent resource for any .22 information you could ever need.

    I agree as I just picked up a savage. great shooter out of the box and very reasonably priced.

    I agree with others who say Savage Arms.
    Savage Model 93 Mark II FVXP is a nice rifle.
    We have a Savage Model 94FXP semi auto that accurate right out of the box but no aftermarket uogrades are available for the 94.
    For customization nothing really beats a Ruger 10/22.

    Man you guys got me looking at .22's and I stumbled across these 10/22 mannlicher's that are out right now and I want one for some reason. I don't know why I would need a 6th .22 around for but I sure want one.
