Hands down ruger 10/22 super fun super accurate and you can customize it to the fullest. Any and every part on that gun can be changed. imageuploadedbyfirearms-talk1391902273.932916.jpg

Just got back from Premier Gun Show and the S&W M&P22 seems very very promising. I really liked the way it felt in my hands and I'm warming up to the AR style. What sort of cleaning slots would I need? I have my eyes set on Ballistol and I know of CLB and Hoppes but what other cleaners are there?

I shot a bunch of handguns years ago with my Dad. got away from it for about 15 years, and jumped back in with both feet last year. I bought a nice bunch of guns last year. But I wish I would have bought my CZ 452 22 bolt action first. What a great, affordable rifle to learn with. And on top of that it looks nice, and shoots very accurately. I am biased towards my CZ, but I would highly suggest a nice bolt action 22 to start off. The bolt slows you down a little, saving ammo, and allowing you to really work on your technique. No sense burning through tons of ammo if you're doing it wrong.

I've handled CZ rifles and they are pretty good but I don't like the sights at all.

They do have a learning curve. But if that's the only dow side they are easily changed. Or a scope can be added. I am suffering/sticking with/ learning my open sights so that I might become a better shooter. But I have patience. To each his own.

Personally I would either go with the 10-22 or the Henry as a first gun. Second one would be the one you didn't get as the first one!

If you like the AR platform then I would suggest you save up and buy an AR. That having been said having a rimfire AR style is a great idea. Wish I had one myself. I am seriously considering a new rimfire that is being made by Franklin Armor, the F17L which is a Winchester Super Magnum .17 caliber gas operated AR style rifle.

Don't gert me wrong I completely agree with starting out using open sights. I just didn't find the open sights on the CZ rifle that comfortable.

How does the Browning BL-22 stack up against Henry's .22 Frontier Model?

Henry is the bee's knees.

Personally I would prefer the Browning (I have the Henry and have fired the Browning). The short 33 degree lever throw where the trigger is an integral part of the lever makes cycling an afterthought and just flat bitchin IMO, and its a very well made gun. The downside is the price.
