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 could care less about what anybody says..............

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.

Oh oops - I guess wenatchee is a bit far away from bothell. Guess the gas money would offset the price a bit!

I got this one here http://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/product_info.php/manufacturers_id/73/products_id/24150 that little thing is just stupid accurate, I used to shoot 12ga shells at 100 yards with it but last time out we were popping 410ga shells at about 125 yards as the 12ga shells I had nearly a 100% hit ratio on. I did change out the scope for a 3-9x40 and that was the real difference as before I just couldn't find those little 410 shells at that range with the 4x that came with the rifle. A bit more money for this gun but it's by far the most accurate 22 I've ever shot.
The reason there are so many Ruger upgrades is because they're necessary.

i sure like my TC encore 22 lr heavy barrel. VERY accurate even with a cheep tasco scope. kind of spendy for a plinker, but to me it was worth it. i also have a marlin 60, real fun rifle. but if it comes down to putting grouse on the table, the TC is my choice. no tube, no clip.
