With the number of 10/22's, you should maybe "troll" the pawn shops too.

Pawn shops in my area (Las Vegas) wanted $215 for a used 10/22, which is a joke. I think they might place a premium on them because they are so popular. If you can't get it for less than $200 you might as well buy new - you'll have the warranty, the accessories and the peace of mind.

Default Looking to buy.

Sit on your money, wate for tuition time at a local collage ther's some good buys as kids selling a gun or two to make tuition.
the cork boards at store's like the bank/post office/ grosery store/sale barn/ impliment dealer, gas station useally find a gun for sale, even advertise looking for good used .22 rifle to buy maybe you'll get a call or two.
check at the local gun shop, had several basket cases just givin to me by the gun smith that dident want to mess with that stuff, there was a Ithica model 49 with a broken hammer, a Marlin model 60 disembled in a box needing stock screws and mag tube and front tube mag mount (bought for $20) a Remington model nylon 66 needing a bolt handle and mag tube and sights (dissembled completely in a box).
Yard and moving sales, household auctions and such.

Last 10-22 I seen used around here was about 100.00. A Marlin is a good rifle too. You might luck into some wheel gun but I'd say you would be better off to look for one of these two rifles.

I would recommend one that is (1) common, and (2) adaptable to your needs. The 10/22 has a lot more aftermarket parts than the Marlin.
You should always go for the best you can afford (even if you have to take more time to get the $ together).
A quick decision now, may not be the best decision for later.

The 10/22 NEEDS more aftermarket parts than the Marlin.

Never buy a 10/22, just buy all the parts and make your own, which will be better than anything Ruger ever put out.

Or, get a Marlin 795 for $129 (or less on sale) at your local sporting goods store.
Marlin has a $25 rebate as well on their website.

Marlin accessories also tend to be MUCh less expensive than Ruger accessories.
Ramline lockarm stock for a 1022 - $89
Ramline Lockarm stock for a 795 - $14.90

Trigger assembly for 1022 - $200+
Trigger assembly for 795 - $75

Why pay more for less performance??
Get a 795 and be HAPPY

It all comes down to what you want to use your rifle for.
Small game out to 60 yards, plinking, without the need for extreme accuracy such as bench rest accuracy.
A 10 22 will easily deliver 1 inch less groups at 50-60 yards without any modifications such as mentioned previously. Another factor to consider the inherant capabilities on the 22 round itself.
If you want extreme accuracy you may want to look into a heavy barrel bolt action or single shot better suited for this type of shooting but I would not like to lug such a firearm around in a plinking or hunting situation.
IT all comes down to WHAT YOU WANT TO USE YOUR RIFLE FOR. I choose the type of ammunition for the type of shooting you want to do, THEN get the rifle to fulfill your needs
Bolt or single shot for maximum accuracy, and an auto for small game and fun shooting cans etc.
If the rifle will be stored where kids are likely to be present then I prefer the 10-22 as the magazine can be removed and stored in a separate place but can be loaded in an instant
by just inserting and charging one in the chamber and just as easily unloaded. With several magazines reloading is a snap and rapid which is a blast for plinking
Just some thoughts you might want to consider

A couple guys suggested Marlin 60. That would be a good choice and should be in your price range. I havent found gun shows to be the best place to look for good deals.
