best plinker for the money
 
I'm sure this has been covered but I couldn't find it. I want a good quality good shooting rimfire rifle to extend the fun at the range and teach my children to shoot. I prefer a flexible platform tho the S&W 15/22 is pricey and over my budget (tho if I found a used one at a good price)

Who doesn't love a 10/22?

Remington 597 very reasonably priced.

Not as many aftermarket upgrades out there compared to the Ruger 10/22, but still a great gun for the money.

Glock,
The 15/22 IS fun! REALLY fun!
To learn to shoot, however, I recommend a single shot or at most bolt action rifle. The early foundation of firing process competency is very important to developing good safety habits, event resolution skills, and a respect for firing a weapon. I have a Winchester Wildcat and a very old Savage break over single shot that my kids learned on....both VERY inexpensive rifles, but fully capable of endearing kids to the sport and bringing many smiles...

One generally learns to be a better shot when they have to make that shot count. Get him/her a bolt action rimfire, (can be had at walmart for 100 dollars or so). With a semi-automatic, you have so and so many rounds extra to hit that target, that they don't learn the fundamentals.

Listen to TruggieTex :)

I have a old Savage Model 6C that can be locked in single shot that was my first gun I shot, it will be their first as well. I need something to keep their interest(as they inherited my ADHD lol), I know not many 15/22's are sold used but anyone know the best place to look for a good used one?

Smith 22A for around 300 would my choice!! And someday soon I will choose!! Lol dang 9mm are to expensive to shoot these days!! Couple of boxes of shells and range time>60 bucks or so-:(

My first rifle was a bolt action .22. A JC Higgins branded Marlin. I've seen them used in pawn shop for under a $100.

Also can check on Marlin model 60 rifles. Good for the money, new or used.

Ruger 10/22 rifles are good when you can get a deal or find one gently used.

Henry and Marlin lever action .22s are great as well, but they can be kind of pricey.

Marlin model 60 is the best bang for the buck. More accurate than the 10/22 out of the box and cheaper.

Axxe55 07-14-2013 04:30 AM

my suggestion, would be either a Marlin or Savage bolt action, or a Marlin model 60 or Ruger 10/22 if wanting to go the semi-auto route.
