Yeah I really like the Savage mark 2 TR,they have them at Dicks sporting goods for 399.00 in dark earth stock

The TR would be a good choice. Top it off with a nice scope and you would be set.

I would love to be able to afford some of the high end rimfire rifles, but I can't complain about the ragged one hole 50 yard groups I get with my Mossberg 144LSB using match ammo and peep sights. I also shoot under 1/2 inch at 50 yards with several of my other rimfires rifles, including my custom 1022.

Yeah, $500 is a lot of money for a rimfire. That sounds good to define "Regular Gun". My opinion on the Anshutz's was just that, my opinion. (I didn't ask for the best HB rifle Canebrake, I'm not the OP.) By "regular person, I meant "like me". I'm just a blue collar Sheetmetal Mechanic. Now, I could go out and pay cash this afternoon for the Anshutz, but, there are other more important things to do with my, I mean our $. Plus, If I came home with one, it would't keep me warm at night, if you know what I mean.........

Well, you can tweak a machine to insane performance levels, and, if everybody is using the same thing with almost no variation built in, it's down to strictly the operator's skill, and some luck. That's the reason I don't like NASCAR, (or formula 1) is I can't go out and buy the car that won the race. Those cars don't even LOOK anything like a Monte Carlo, or a Dodge Challenger, or whatever. And, realistically, those kinds of things are priced WAY out of the average Joe's means. It used to not be that way. Go buy a car or gun off the shelf, and use that. That's just My Opinion. You're entitled to yours.

He said "Best." Not, good & inexpensive.
Anschutz is among the best, if not the best. I know I would certainly like to have a Anschutz sporter based on the 54 action. The best, unfortunately usually comes at a significant cost.
Another option would be to hunt down one of the old Kimber 82s, they seem a bit cheaper than the Anschutz option, and they don't give up much in accuracy.

Then find a Marlin 2000 or 2000A or 2000L with Biathelon kit...
sell between $250-$450, sometimes higher...
It was meant for the 2000 Olympics...and a pretty darn fine rifle it was

Yep, they're still making 'em...including a new tactical version...
I've got a pair of oldie rimfires M-100 & M110...but I may have to upgrade the M-100 with the new Tac Quadrail...
along with the pair of Liberty III's needing some pimping...

And I still need to get an M-100S (wood stock version...) & a 9mm carbine as well

Are they good guns? I may have heard they were somewhat unreliable. I have always thought they looked cool, though, and you can't beat the 100 rd mag...or bottom eject.
