I'm looking for a Second gun to shoot at the range along with my glock 19. I really like the ar 15 and ak 47 however it will be for target shooting so .22 can be fired for hours for a fraction of he cost of .233 etc. Any one able to suggest a low price .22 fun rifle? Hoping for around 350$ give or take

Ruger 10/22.... and lots less than your budget!

That's a great looking Ruger.... well loved! For $200, the 10/22 is tons of fun. The more I shoot, the more I'm enjoying .22 LR. Shooting is shooting, don't get me wrong, I enjoy the recoil of stiffer ammo, but for a long day of target plinking, I'm shooting more and more with .22LR. I've added to my enjoyment with what I call "Tiki Targets".... I take 3" PVC and cut 1.5" slices which I attach to 1" pvc pipe like a cup holder @ 3' long. When I go out in the desert shooting, I take a couple of 12 packs of the super cheap soda cans and shoot them in the "Tiki's".... When you hit them, they burst nicely and make the area smell like punch or grape soda. Graet fun!

If you buy the Ruger 10/22, you can have an inexpensive .22 semi auto to shoot. There are numerous kits to alter the looks of the Ruger to make it look like an AR or whatever.

Midway sells kits for the cosmetics, but the 10/22 is a good shooter.

Sorry guys I didn't mean that was a 10/22 . That's what I upgraded to.apparently my last sentence on my first post didn't go through.The Law is correct, it is a GSG-5 SD. Sorry for the confusion.

I had one (GSG-5) and it shot great. Cool looking little gun with lots of options and features you could add to it. I sold it to buy a S&W MP15-22, the AR version of the .22 rifle. I also own two Ruger 10/22s which I love. I got the second one to thread for a suppressor host but just can't bring myself to thread the barrel. I'll end up getting a barrel for it.

Everything works like the AR and all the stuff is in the same place. It allows for practice at a much cheaper cost. I've been very happy with mine, and want to upgrade my "real" AR to a S&W MP as well.

I've owned a couple of rimfire rifles, including a TacSol dedicated upper for my AR, a GSG-5, a Savage bolt gun, a CZ-452 American bolt gun, and maybe others I've forgotten.

I currently have a somewhat tricked out 10/22. I have a thread about it on here somewhere if you care to go find it. What I did is not in the range you listed but you can start with any old 10/22 and add/mod it as you go so as not to dump a wad of cash all at once.

I loved the ones that came before it but I think this is the best I've had yet. It's really fun to shoot.

If you are a 1911 fan, the Military Models that are made by High Standard are phenominal. I have an older (40+ years) Victor that is the same weight as a loaded Colt 1911, and the exact same grip angle. HS did this for bullseye shooters so they continued the same grip, etc, from small bore (The Victor) through to .45 The accuracy is next to none, and that includes S&W Model 41s. I have owned them both, and I still have my Victor. You can find them at bargain prices if you look long enough. Good luck.

So I went to check some out at the shop today. They had an mp15-22 which is nice, but plastic. They had an ar 15 .22 that was metal for 550 and he said it was one he would recommend because I could replace they upper later on and have it shoot the real ar15 rounds .223. Where the mp1)5-22 will always be .22. What do you guys think?

I'd like to know what manufacturer and model he was talking about. You wont have any issues with the MP being "plastic" if you decide to go that route.
