Excellent advice!
Exactly what I've been thinking for myself - in fact, a 10/22.
I'm mostly handguns right now - need some change...

It's says NATO round does that mean that's the round our troops using while engaging bad guys??

Please excuse my elementry questions.
Newb but really want to be involved and begin to be a quality responsible educate rifle owner.

Thanks in advance.
Many prefer an AR chambered in 5.56, it will still shoot .223...the rounds are similar but not the same. Hundreds of threads here on the is the literal well beaten dead horse round these parts.

Back to the original question...have you looked at the M&P 15-22? It is an AR patterned rifle in .22lr and sells at about $400. At that price you could conceivably get the Mossy 500 and the AR for about the price of the AR alone. Not a full .223 caliber but loads of fun for occasional range plinking and recreational use.

It establishes some rights of the individual as unalienable and which consequently, no majority has a right to deprive them of." (Albert Gallatin of the New York Historical Society, October 7, 1789)
