I'm looking for a simple 22 for shooting and small game. I'm thinking about a ruger 10/22 or the henry lever action 22. I think the lever action would just be fun, but I know the reputation of the 10/22. Looking for advice, thanks
Something you may wish to check out...your local game laws. Here in Pennsylvania, it is illegal to hunt small game with a semi-automatic rimfire. Why I don't know, but it is.
The Henrys are probably as good a lever gun for that kind of money as you're going to get. The Marlins are very good shooters, but cost more. Nice rifles, too. I'm still hunting for the right used one.
Like bronko said... you can trick out 10/22's with a lot of stuff if you wish, and are generally good shooters.
Got ya thoroughly confused yet??
.... Join the crowd. Or, better yet, buy one of each!!!
