After reading everyone's input, I stumbled across a carbine conversion kit for a Beretta Neos 22 that my brother already owns. It basically turns the handgun into a rifle. Has anyone ever tried this kit or hear anything about it? Its high price is turning me off at the moment (since it's just a kit and not the actual firearm), but it looks like an interesting item.

rachilders: your comment about the rifle fitting almost everyone around me is a very appealing attribute. So far, I only see the SW MP15-22 and Sig 522 with the adjustable stock. I've found a store in Vacaville, CA that has both, so maybe I'll go check it out sometime in person (if they allow that by any means).

ScottA: I'm assuming that any NEW SW MP15-22 I purchase today would not have that defect, correct? I plan on getting new if possible. I'm not taking a chance on purchasing used in case there are problems like these.

While I'm at it, do you guys have a recommended place to purchase ammunition online?

Yes, that problem has long since been corrected.

Default In the market? For a .22?

OK.... Well the market is not a very likely place to find firearms.
Chicken grenades, lettuce or cabbage bombs, maybe even banana boomarangs.

Something I did with my son's one year (In the 1980's) was to take them to an indoor range that had guns you could borrow to shoot at the range, just buy their ammo.
Reason was the elder Son wanted a .44 magnum for Christmas. I wanted to be sure it was what he wanted, so going and shooting one was a great way to decide. We had a ball!

So maybe if you check into indoor ranges, you can find one where you can try out various pop-sticks and then decide.

Here is one candy store you can drool over in the meantime. <Click that<

Thank you Sunnypie, I am indeed drooling all over that page full of 22s at the moment.

And then I stumbled across one of their front page articles that says the Beretta Neos 22 has a recall... great

edit: looking at the link to Cabela's ruger 10/22 accessories, I came across this
http://www.cabelas.com/product/Shooting/Firearm-Components/1022-Accessories%7C/pc/104792580/c/104717880/sc/104815080/Archangel8482-1022-Standard-Rifle-System/727749.uts?destination=%2Fcatalog%2Fbrowse%2Fshoot ing-firearm-components-10-22-accessories%2F_%2FN-1102328&WTz_l=Unknown%3Bcat104815080

Is this a conversion kit to allow the ruger 10/22 to function with a pistol grip and give it a tactical make over? If so, this puts the ruger 10/22 higher on my list of potential purchases. Also, please correct my terminology if I'm wrong; I'm not too familiar with the technical terms.

Wouldn't it be fun to actually build your own based on a 10/22 base?
You could get the parts that suit what you want and build your style right out of the gate.

Oh and as for a Home Defense gun. I know I could easily put a lot of rounds on target with any one of my 22's, and I know damn well they will definitely stop someone.
But my "house gun" is a 12 gauge with a laser.
However, for a survival weapon, I'll take a .22LR and a bulk pack of ammo as my first choice.
Have fun! .22's are a ton of fun when you want to go shooting.

Before you go sink your money into a 10/22 conversion kit, go find a true AR platform and pull the pins and separate the upper from the lower. You will very quickly see the genius of Stoner's design. It is by far the easiest rifle design to clean, maintain, and modify.

Are there any standout issues with the SW MP15-22?

I'll start calling around to local stores/ranges to see if I can get any hand-on time with either of these.

As for the Ruger 10/22, I really would like to have a pistol grip. I failed to find the pistol grip version mentioned above.
I have the S&W MP 15-22, the issue I had was firing Remington Bulk ammo and the extractor came apart (My fault, not the weapon). I re-assembled it and started firing .22LR Blazer CCI 40 gr. ammo and no FTF's after firing over 8000 rounds (Comes to 500 rounds per visit) (The wifes fault, she got me annual pass as an anniversary present at the local outdoor range for a year). I also have the Ruger SR-22 tactical has the pistol grip. No issues, loves Federal and Blazer. The average pricing for the SR-22 is around $500 and the MP 15-22 from $400 on up.

I almost purchased the Sig 522 with folding stock and had a extra barrel with a 1-25 round magazine and a hard case for $389.00 at Sportsman's Warehouse. I did the serach mode for additional mags on the internet - nothing at that time. I purchased without the wife's permission the Ruger SR-22, she was mad until she fired it.

I actually made my way down to a LGD today and had a bit of hands-on time with the SW MP15-22. It looks and feels really good in hand, but this is all meaningless since I didn't actually get to shoot it.

Anyhow, I've looked around at some of the Ruger 10/22 accessories, and the tactical conversion kits (IE the archangel kit) are very appealing at the moment. I also called another LGD and they have a used 10/22 for sale at under $200. Depending on the condition of the used 10/22, how much should I be looking at paying for it? More importantly, what should I be looking for when purchasing a used LR?

I Googled: Ruger 10 22 price.
Here's one thing I got.

I don't think I could spend enough time on what to look for. And then it would be a miss.
If you buy new, you would have warranty time. And you might even keep track of the rounds (or bricks/boxes) of ammo put through your firearm.

$200 for used sounds like a rip-off. YMMV

I'll go pay a visit to the store and take a look at the used 10/22. I do like the peace of mind with a new warranty. I'll see if I can haggle the price down since it's a mom'n'pop antique store.

Thanks for all the helpful input from everyone thus far!

edit: Just curious about the name of the Ruger 10/22. Does the 10 stand for the magazine capacity?
