I tried out my friends Taurus lever action and the accuracy was basically non-existent.

I have a Marlin model 60, thats been in my gun closet for decades, I've never had this problem. Its pretty much been everywhere, in every kind of climate. It was my first real gun, and it was my daughters first real gun.
I'm looking for a Ruger 10/22, right now, and they're still surprisingly cheap for the times. They can be accerized as much as an AR-15. And they break down easily for cleaning and storage.

Interesting you should say this...

I've owned many of the brands you've listed and had zero problems with any of them. Just follow the manufacturer's directions and they'll go a long way.

Many problems happen when one chooses to feed hi-velocity/hyper-velocity ammo through these firearms ~ which the manufacturers clearly state that they are NOT meant to be. Several state NO HP ammo.

I currently own two HP-22a's and have more than 6000 rounds through the both of them. Just using Standard velocity ammo ~ just as it is listed in the Owner's maual.

Good grief. 450 posts of flames many about me. You expect to change my mind like that? Do think I haven't seen what I've seen. I knew this was nothing but a flame thread when I first saw it.

First off - I said I shot my ".22LR" 175 yards often. It's easy. If you don't know that you just haven't tried it. And I know the guy who shot those 500 yard targets. I have shot targets at 375 yards with a .22 so I have little doubt that 500 yards can be done. I'm sorry you don't believe that. It really is your loss.

But please continue to flame me and prove that you don't know shooting. And I'll go back to ignoring you. I really do feel sorry for you. If you asked me nicely I would have made my own video of me shooting to prove to you that you're wrong but instead you just tried to flame me. Did it work? I haven't posted in this thread for 2 months so you figure it out.

If you have really been shooting 60 years and you can't shoot 175 yards you just haven't tried friend. I'm serious. The drop for the CCI SV I often use, which is sub-sonic ammo, is about 18 inches which means I can see the aim point and the target in my scope at the same time.

Have I been shooting a long time? You bet but apparently some of you have too. Why you don't know what a .22 will do is beyond me. You don't believe in yourself or anyone else. That's probably the biggest reason "can't" wins in your life. If you think "can't" then you "won't". It's that simple.

Give it a try some day. Ask one of 100 people on this board that show up every day. There will be more than that. You're wrong friends. You really are. I don't want to show you up. I don't want to insult you. You guys should get out of jr. high attitudes. That's not an insult. It's solid advice for you. You don't read what's said. You add your own facts to what is said. I just don't get you. You work so hard to keep others down that if you used that energy to lift yourself up you'd be a great shooter. Just try it. You might learn something. I won't be back here to flame with you. That's not my idea of fun. You can do what you want. But it's really sad friends. It really is.

When I was a kid, I used to make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and climb a tree in my back yard to eat them. I put nails in the tree to make it easier to climb. My Mother said the nails killed the tree. She ended up cutting it down. Still think about that tree when I eat one of those sandwiches.

It's a wonder you hadn't killed dear old ma with those nails. If she used a chainsaw those nails could turn into shrapnel quick. That's why the tree huggers spike trees. And make me a pb&j the next time ok?
