Marlin model 60 going away. It has been around for years and has been the top selling 22 on the market as long as I can remember. Look at it this way the millions of people who hav bought one can't all be wrong.

Default Shooting 22's

I always smile when I read a gun writer talk about the .22 being a great starter gun. I agree that it is a great starter gun but it is a good keep on shooting gun also. I see my fellow shooters at the range shooting 45 ACP etc. etc. and good for them, I’m glad they enjoy what they are doing. But, having said that, it really irks me when someone says to me, “when are you going to start shooting a real gun?” My reply is pretty standard, “Here, take this target and walk out there to the 50 yard line, hold it on your chest, and after I empty my old “unreal gun” Ruger Mark II into it, walk back here and tell me what a toy it is. Amazing, isn’t it. I can shoot my .22’s all day long and be just fine, but I can put 6 rounds out of my Ruger Super Blackhawk down range and my arthritic thumb hurts the rest of the day. I grew up shooting a .22 and still love them, and I can shoot as long as I want and not have to mortgage the cabin. Keep them 22’s barking and keep on having fun with a real gun, a 22. Leave the Big Guns to the Big Boys and let them feel real proud. If I had to sell all my guns tomorrow, the one I'd keep would be a .22 but I just don't know which one.

In an automatic I think it's tough to beat a Ruger 10/22. I have one and wouldn't do without it. My brother has a Savage Mark II - bolt action, 10 round detachable magazine, scope. It's accurate and reliable.

2OLDGUNGUY, I'm not too old but, due to injury, I can already sympathize about the shooting arthritis. I have a Keltec 9mm (concealed carry) that irritates my wrist and lately my 357 bugs my elbow, unless I shoot with a modified Weaver stance. About 5 years ago I gave up on magnum rifles for my shoulder's sake and haven't missed those a bit.

A 10/22 for around $200 or some kind of real old single shot bolt action for about $75 to $150. Those old ones shoot great.
