Help me decide?!?
 
Hello All,

I will be purchasing a new firearm as a gift to myself for Christmas. I have narrowed my options down to 3 guns (2 pistols, 1 rifle) and need some help deciding.

Background: The selected gun will be primarily used for plinking at a local range that opened up a few minutes from my house. I currently own a Pardner Protector Shotgun that serves as my home defense currently, 2 old .22 Rifles handed down from my old man, and an old Savage 170 Pump 30-30 for large game hunting.

My Options:
1) CZ P-07 Duty 9mm I love the feel of these guns and enjoy shooting pistols. This would also serve as my carry once I get a CCW. Cost of ammo at the range will be the highest of my options.

2) Walther P22 Fun gun for plinking, cheap ammo, but not a good defense gun.

3) Ruger 10/22 Rifle Cheap initial cost and cheap ammo, however I would plan to modify this rifle fairly extensively. I enjoy working on/modifying so this would be a fun continuous project gun as I can add a part, take it to the range, and see the difference.

So, please help me decide what you would do. Thank you in advanced for any suggestions or comments.

You don't have a handgun and you indicate you want to get a carry permit - so the choice is obvious to me. I had a CZ-P01 and it was a nice gun, I just prefer SA triggers...

You need a decent pistol, so go ahead and get the CZ. You've already got .22's, so you're covered in that department already. Buy a 10/22 eventually, because they're just great rifles and fun to play with.

I also suggest that down the road you pick up a heavier caliber rifle or carbine. If you ever want to reach out and touch something, it's nice to have the capability.

Thanks for the feedback guys.

I have the 30-30 which is a heavy enough caliber for me now, but I would like to pick up a nice .308 or 30-06 down the road.

It looks like you need a handgun to me. The 9mm will serve as defense as well as plinking/practicing on the range.
