Ditto what Wanttohuntmore said.  CZ's are accurate and pretty, also pretty pricey.  Besides, who wants a .22 that you are afraid to scratch or take out in the rain?  IMHO, Savage makes the best out-of-the-box barrels there are, and the ones with the black composite stocks are real workhorses.  Not to mention very affordable.
PS,  My first 22 was a J.C. Higgins bolt action rifle, made by Marlin.  Still super accurate today (over 50 years later).

I don't think you'd be happy with a cricket.  It's a kiddie gun.  I'm assuming you are over 7 years old. ;)

If I was to go buy my teenaged sons a 22 rifle as a plinker and absolutely fun gun to shoot and modify, I'd go to the pawn shops and find an older used Ruger 10-22. The new models have too many plastic parts.

I sold my Remington single shot .22 LR rifle (and a few other guns) when we first got married.  Wouldn't mind having it back!    :bash:

Now have a Ruger 10/22 and it is very reliable, accurate and handy to get in and out the truck wihile cruising the backroads for blues.

The 10/22 is hard to beat for fun, accuracy, and reliability.  The savage bolt action I mentioned above is at Walmart for $127 and would probably be more accurate and would last you a lifetime.  I'm not sure what 10/22's are going for today, but I would suspect around $200?  I remember when they were less than $130.

Get a 22 mag and not a 22 long rifle. You can do more with the 22 mag. Kill coyotes and bobcats out to a 100 yards easy. I have one and use it all the time. I have the 10-22 Ruger and never use it.

I have the savage mark 2 tactical like this....http://www.wildlifehunters.com/savagemarkiitrreview.htm

the 10/22 and a few older rifles that are more collector then practical for what you are looking for. the 10/22 is a ton of fun and easy to burn ammo with. my mk2 has a turret on it and I have made repeatable coffee can sized hits to 300yds.......but tof is forever....lol. the 10/22 could do the same, but it would kill the handling of that rifle.
