Look around on Craigslist. I just bought a Marlin Model 60 for $75. It's dead accurate.

If you know your weapons, what's the harm? I've bought all my current weapons from CL. Not a single issue.

Why not, at first, just try loading one round at a time in your magazine? Knowing you only have one shot might get you in the mindset you are going for.

But otherwise one of the <$200 Marlins will surely serve you well for what you are trying to do.

Thanks everyone! I'm trolling the local gun shops keeping an eye out for a good used one. Hopefully I can get what I'm after for even less and save the rest for a future firearm.

But keep the ideas coming! Its very helpful to a new shooter to have some advice on what's good and what's crap!

Another vote for a Savage bolt action. I've got the Mk II BV & it's very accurate with CCI subsonic HP's. A local dealer has the Mk II BTV for $333, Dick's carries them also, if you feel like dealing with them. The BTV is the same as the BV (laminate stock, bull barrel, no sights) with a thumb hole stock vs standard. Both have the AccuTrigger, which IMO makes the Savage's such great shooters for the $.

Isn't he just looking for a decent bolt-action that he can just shoot with? I don't see why he needs something more than this:
MAR 925RWS 22LR BOLT W/SCP 7 RD SYN , which should still shoot near MOA pretty easily . Hell, my stock 10/22 off a cheap BiPod would shoot 2MOA with bulk ammo all day.

Because some of us like having rimfire RIFLES not rimfire SHOTGUNS.

Good point. I should live my entire life in fear and never leave the house at all. Just too risky out there what with the butt pirates roaming the streets these days. Don't even get me started on those fat welfare mama's in Wal-Mart. They'll EAT you.
