Any un-suppressed 22 will sound identical. Of course semi-auto's will be slightly louder due to action opening at the time of bang. Its all about the ammo and the setting.

I wouldn't mind a bolt rifle, it would make me feel like a sniper .

Just got back from a place here called Allen Arms, they have the Ruger 10/22 for $223 I am sold, I got a little bit more time with it, and I think I will be happy in the long run.

You bet and with a .22lr you can shoot all day on the cheap!

And regardless of the caliber, time spent putting led on target makes you a better marksman.

You will be a lot more happier with the Ruger, I'd say. So many options to choose from. And very reliable. Although you will have to see what brand of rounds it likes the best. I still have mine from 1975 and have never had to replace anything as far as parts and guesstimate over 10,000 rounds through it..

So when you say "rounds it likes" does that mean each gun has a different "taste" even though they're made by the same company?

I had a stock 10-22 and it shot poor groups. Bought expensive Kimbers and Coopers. They shoot outstanding, but you don't want to shoot them since they cost thousands. they are only good to look at.

I settled for a Savage Mark II in SS with syn stock. Nice cheap gun, shoots well, rust proof and don't care about putting a scratch on it any more than I would worry about a scratch on my circular saw.

Sorry. Bolts and levers CAN jam. Maybe not as often as semi-auto's but they do. And when they do they're usually harder to clear in my experience.

Any number of things can cause a 22 semi to jam. It doesn't mean they're a pice of junk if they do. It could be simply that the ammo you're shooting is lower powered for one reason or another. The next box of the same stuff might shoot just fine. The ammo might have just a very slight variation in the size of the cases. Again the next box might be fine. 22 ammo is cheap, they make thousands and thousands of rounds at a time and they can't check it all. Some brands are better than others, and some brands work better in one rifle than they do in another. So ammo is a variable.

The rifle could be dirty. Or it could need to be lubed. Or it could even be overlubed which leads to dirty. Generally speaking keep it lightly lubed, and clean and it will run better.

The rifle (or handgun actually) might need to be "broken in." Again, most 22's are inexpensive. That means they don't get a lot of hand finishing. Shooting them is the best way to have the parts rub together and "wear in" so they fit together just right. So don't give up on a new gun.

Oh, and a new gun usually needs to be cleaned before you shoot it to get the packing/storage grease/oil/crud out.

Thank you all, I have decided on the Ruger 10/22. I found it at wal-mart for $197, going to go pick it up tomorrow.
