If you are looking to build on fundamentals by "target shooting" I would suggest the .223 this will also enable you to do the small game hunting. The rig Homers Brother suggests would be very good. If you are looking for more of a casual plinker I would go with the 22.

BTW as was mentioned earlier in the thread there is no reason why you cannot get both eventually. Purchasing new firearms has really taught me how to be disciplined in my gun savings. I put a sheet of paper in my "gun jar." Every week when I add a $10 or $20 I write down the date and total the new amount. In this way I see the money growing and can predict about when I will have the funds for the next piece. So far I have averaged 1 purchase a year...not too bad.

Good luck with your decision.
all hail the definitive answer

Leaning toward the new SR22 pistol or a .223 but not sure which flavor.

From the look of what you have, I would lean towards the .223. Would give you a nice longer range, smaller caliber gun.
