I have a Browning Buckmark pistol and also a Buckmark rifle. They are both very accurate and both use the same magazines. My Dad has an old lever action .22 (browning or marlin I canít remember), but that thing is still my favorite to shoot. And with the super fine open sights is very accurate. So many good .22 options out there!

Hmmm, with so many good 22's I'm not sure I could honestly pick a favorite. 

I put VQ trigger kits in both my MK III Target and 22/45 and they're a lot of fun to shoot but I really like shooting my M&P 22 Compact and the last few outings I've shot it more.  The PMR30 is, literally, a blast to shoot and my wife likes shooting it more than about any gun we own.  She likes the big bang, but very little recoil, and fire ball the PMR30 produces.  They have a great trigger and mine is very accurate but boy howdy can you burn through some ammo with those things and those 30rnd mags. 

For rifles I have always really liked lever action 22's and I've put tens of thousands of rounds through a few different Win 9422's and a couple Marlin 39A's.  I think the Marlin 39A is a little more accurate than the Win 9422's but the 9422 is much lighter and more compact and plenty accurate enough to hammer sage rats and for me the Win 9422 is just a more fun gun to shoot.  Probably why I still have the 9422's and no Marlin 39A's.

Any of the Ruger MK series of 22's are great.  Their 22/45 is great as is Ruger's SR22 and Single six.  I really like my M&P 22 Compact.  In 22 Mag the KelTec PMR30 is a lot of firepower, for a 22, in a light and somewhat compact size pistol.

To pick just one favorite, for me, would be no bueno.  There are just to many really good ones to choose from which is a good thing.  :tup:

I think 22s are best when they are cheap and fun

My camp gun is a Winchester 190 with irons

Fun little shooter and if something happens to it when camping then shrug

If it is more compact and has short throw cycle on the lever it's a Browning but if it's a little longer as well as on the heavy side and has a longer throw cycle on the lever it'll be a Marlin.  Lever action 22's are a lot of fun.  I always liked the Browning but that short throw takes a little getting used if you come from shooting the Winchester 9422 or Marlin 39A.

Winchester model 61 or Ruger Bearcat. Handed down to me in the 70's for Christmas. Thanks again Grandpa, just what every 7 year old needs.

In order:  ;)
Dad gave me a Winchester Model 69A when I was about 9 years old, I still have it and it shoots good.
My 22 pistol is a S&W Model 422, they don't make them anymore but it is a nice pistol.
And I also bought a Ruger 77/22 from my aunt after my uncle had passed, it is an accurate gun too.

Marlin ĎGoldení 39A I bought with paper route money when I was 15. Still have it and enjoy holding and shooting the sweet little thing. Golden because it came from the factory with a gold plated trigger.

For pistol or would be my Suppressed Mk3 22/45 with VQ upgrades and a Burris FF3

Rifle was my VQ 10/22 , that was replaced with a Kidd , but that's been set aside since I got my CZ 455 Precision trainer with Lilja barrel , also suppressed
