Dude, the day I get offended by words on a computer screen is the day I throw my laptop through the _ I don't think your story is real, but thats ok. It really shouldn't bother you and make you think you have to respond with more semi legible posts.

Personally, I have been shooting since I was knee high to a grasshopper. And the only semi-auto .22 lr rifle that I have extensive experience and that I would suggest is the ruger 10-22. It's accurate, dependable, and will definately take out those rabbits easy enough.

Folks always assume bigger is better. I think accuracy in round placement is far more important. I have a Remington 597 Magnum. 8 in the clip, one in the chamber. If you cant do some damage with that, you shouldn't have a gun in your hand in the first place.


Added. Extra thick barrel and a 10x scope make things real nice

yup, accuracy is an essential issue.

The question is: Would you want to go against a guy, in a high power match, with an AR-15, who has spent about 35,000 rds of 22 lr ammo in his dedicated 22 upper or one that has practiced only about 5,000 rds of 223, in his
AR-15 semi auto?

It's good for a beginning shooter to learn how to shoot iron sights first; then switch to optics later.

For now, I favor target shooting over hunting with a gun or bow; though I do like both sports.

I like to run my Eotech 552 on my AR-15 dedicated 22 upper. But I still love to run my Burris 1 x 4 on it but alas, it is on another centerfire upper. That Leupold 1.1 x 12 is awesome, but it costs $4,000.

You can pick your target better, but not faster with a riflescope on a 22, at 100 yds, which is much more accurate than a 1x at that range especially on 9X.

I've made some pretty good hits with my 22, on our 200 yd range as well.

I luv shooting at metal spinning targets, air balloons, water balloons, golf balls on a string, pine cones, apples and tennis balls with my 22 semi auto; and my 22 pistol and bolt guns.

My cousin was shot in the face with a 22 from less than a foot away, and survived perfectly fine. One of my fathers buddies got shot multiple times in the head, with a 22 and he didnt die. He is severely hanidcapped now though. Yes you can kill something big with a 22 if you hit an artery but, the author of the thread doesnt seem that experienced with guns so the chances of that are unlikely friend.

Also I was raised around guns, and we have multiple guns in the house, one of them being a semi automatic 22LR, so I do know first hand the capabilities of a .22.

Agree with all your points, however in a shtf sit there would be no,or very little, medical care and a .22 lodged in the shoulder could easily kill a man, he's certainly out of the fight and probably faces a life of painful misery as an invalid in need of care.

In actuality for a civilian survivor a 10/22 is a great tool, get a 200 round twin snail and an elastic band and it becomes a nice weapon in a fire fight, you're able to carry loads of plentiful cheap ammo ranging from cheap garden rounds to fancy high power variants.

If however I was static defending a prospering well supplied community I'd like a HK417.

Living here in the USA weapons are everywhere. The .22 cal is an execlent choice for a first long gun. May I suggest a Marlin brand, in Bolt action.. As you may know .22 have many varients such as 22 Short, 22 Long, 22 Long riful, 22 Mag, etc. For small game The Marlin allows you to use the most popular varieties: Short, Long and Long Rifull. And the .22 Short are the most economical of the lot. And a Bolt action allows for a more accurate placement of rounds. Hope this helps. The Marlin web site should be available

The .22LR is an erxcellent beginner round in many ways. The ammo is cheap and once you get expert with that round ( by shooting alot cheaply) your knowledge can translate to larger rounds.The .22 will force you to accuracy for the kill shot on rabbits and is a perfect weapon to fine tune all your shooting skills.
Remember, ask any seasoned assasine and there round of choice is without a dought the trusted .22Lr.
Get the .22 and have a blast plinking( damm varmits).


If an assasin wants primarely stealth, then why not get a 9mm silencer? Makes for a faster kill but perhaps they want 22lr because the bullet fractures making it difficult for forensics to id the bullet?

A shotgun is a much better all-around tool. Its good for birds, varmint, humans, bears, etc

You can go from #9 birdshot all the way to a brenneke slug. Although I prefer foster slugs cause they sting more, in other words all the muzzle velocity is absorbed by the prey rather than keeping its momentum and drilling forward.

The only downside is that buckshot and slugs are expensive, about a dollar per cartridge.

22lr is good for nothing!

I hadn't even thought of suggesting a shotgun, but yes they are great.

.22 LR though are still excellent...I wouldn't say they are good for nothing. You can easily plink all the small game you want with a good .22 LR. Ammo is dirt cheap. I can get a 500 round box of decent ammo for about $10.00 - $15.00 on sale. Good for practicing marksmanship. Fun to shoot.

Everyone I know who enjoys firearms owns at least one .22 LR....most even more.
