To me I like the heaviness of a 223 just because its bigger but a 22 is the best if your just having fun with it

For a first 22LR the Marlin Model 60 is the best option. You just sight it in and start shooting. There isn't much you can do to a model 60 that will be improvement. The dovetail scope mount leaves a lot to be desired. The aftermarket stocks suck.

After you have embarrassed a bunch of people with tacti-cool weapons. A 10/22 is in order. You don't need to do much to a 10/22. Replace the recoil buffer to get rid of that awful clack and mount a decent scope on the 10/22. I don't see how the bull barrels help very much. Out of the box a 10/22 will hit a squirrel in the head. I don't hunt ants so more accuracy isn't needed.
"I do not aim with my hand; I aim with my eye. He who aims with his hand has forgotten the face of his father.
I do not shoot with my hand; I shoot with my mind. He who shoots with his hand has forgotten the face of his father.
I do not kill with my gun; I kill with my heart. He who kills with his gun has forgotten the face of his father."
