Only 1 .22 rifle. Semi, bolt or lever?
 
You only get one, if you had to choose, what would it be? .22 LR rifle in either a semi auto, bolt action, or lever action.

Bolt action. You would use your ammo more wiser than you would with a semi

Lever. I really like a good lever gun.

Lever. Faster than a bolt, slower than a semi. YMMV.

Bolt for me. I would'nt trade my Savage bolt action for anything, I just love hitting the range with it.

Ruger 10/22. Learned firepower disipline in the Army, semi-auto's not an issue.

Bolt. Unless you think zombies are real, then get a semi.

My exact thought.

Only one? Buy a quality bolt action. There really is no substitute.
Later on, if you feel the need to burn through a lot of ammo, you can grab a used 10/22 somewhere.

A bolt gun (and most levers) can feed and shoot any standard .22 RF And the 10/22 is a good rifle, but see how it does with shorts or CB longs/ Colibris.

I DO have some Remington 550-1s that can cycle with shorts, longs, long rifles- but that is rare for an auto.
