I do agree with what you're saying though, and if I ever have kids, I'm going to start them on .22s as soon as possible.
Not only do I agree with both of you, but when I have kids, I will be keeping them away from those stupid video games as much as possible.
But im a lefty and manufacturers are picky lol.
Check out Savage. They seem to have cornered the market on LH rifles. Use the gun finder to check off your specs. and narrow it down. I'm also a Lefty, but as it turns out, I like to shoot RH bolt actions better.
My friends and I used to "chop" down 4" trees in the way at my back hard range. I grew up on some kind of single shot bolt 22 until I was gifted a Remington Nylon semi auto in my teen years.
When I was 16, my brother returned from a deployment in the navy and we were plinking at my grandparents back yard. He had a Marlin tube fed semi auto. He walked down range about 50 yards and put a quarter in the ground and dared me to shoot it. He offered me his Marlin if I hit it. The dang thing was barely a glint through the iron sights but I squeezed off a round from his rifle and the glint disappeared. We ran out and found the quarter buried in the ground about a foot past where it was originally at. The bullet pierced it and deformed it heavily. I didn't take his gun, it was a very lucky shot.

Really? U work the action with your support hand? Doesnt the bolt hit ur face? Lol
If regular ammo was as cheap as.22, I'd lock my .22's away for a long time. Ugh... Not that I don't like the .22, I've just had a lot of cool guns doing nothing for the past 4 years because ammo is too expensive.
I think even if I was a millionaire Id probably shoot .22 the most I just love the round . Dont beat ya up after putting 500 rds through it. You don't have to wear hearing protection. Doesn't destroy targets after 10 rds .
You can just sit there in a nice folding chair and make coke cans hop around your property all day long .
i notice when people po po the 22lr saying you only shoot it because its cheep dont do small game . i shot a skunk ( totaly legal here) with my mosian 91-30 7.62 54r once it was a mass you dont allways need the power of a big gun
the 22 also a top choice for the mob too
22s are awesome, there cheap to shoot, and can be quite accurate. Sure I like shooting big guns, but I can't afford to shoot 300wm all day long. I know a ton of people that act like a 22 is for babies.
