i have a marlin model 25 i think it 22lr.......deadly accurate....and it kills rabbit squirrels and groundhogs dead.......just head shot one at 50yds yesteday actually....the 22stinger did a nice so accurate with a 22 its not recoil and ive shot mine 10000s of times...ive head shot a tree rat at 75.......dropped him like a brick......and ammo is dirt cheap.....the 17 may be faster and drop less but thats all it got on the 22......and for rabbits and squirrels distance wont be that far anyways.....and the 22 isnt going go with a 22.......

What about the semi-autos, like the ruger 10/22 or remington 597. Good follow up shots, quick shooting and with a little work they can be major tack drivers. I had an 55D Anschultz in .22 magnum, that was the most accurate .22 i have ever shot. It was incredible, my cousin had a 10/22 with a bull barrel and high power scope and benchrest stock and i could shoot circles around him. I wish i hadnt sold it, but i do really like my 10/22 it does great on targets and squirrels.

Just to say it incase it wasn't said here. Semi-auto rifles and pistols can not be used in PA to hunt. Semi-auto shotguns can be used but must be limited (like all shotguns in PA) to 3 rounds.
