Ruger 10/22 Carbine everyday Walmart price is $197... no shipping or FFL fees, just sales tax.

You can't go wrong with a Ruger 10/22... lots and lots of accessories if you choose to go that route. Good luck.

I bought my M&P 22 for $425 nib which was an excellent deal considering I was thinking of the .22 conversion kit for my M4 that was going to run almost as much. I have nothing against the ruger I just prefer the look and functionality of the m&p. It comes stock with a picatinny quad rail from the removable rear sight to the removable front sight which allows for lots of toys to be put on it. Along with that is a charging handle and bolt release similar to an actual AR.

My vote would be for the S&W. I have one and got a decent deal on it at a gunshow. All the controls are the same as a full size AR. Makes a great little shooting package and if you move up to a full size AR, the controls will be very familiar.

Super easy to clean. They have aftermarket spring kits available for the trigger. Personally, I like the stock trigger.

I picked up the Sig 522 for $430, and it is a great rifle. So, that is where my vote goes.

If you plan to use an AR-15 or M-4 and have the extra money, it helps your muscle memory to practice with a .22 version of your larger caliber rifle. Just make sure to equip your .22 with the lasers, lights, slings and other goodies from your big gun so that you have the same weight and train your body the exact same way with your .22. Make sure all the switches, battery packs, spare mags - EVERYTHING - is in the exact same place as the big gun. You don't want to re-adjust when you go to your serious caliber. This is a cheap way to train yourself to have good tactics when you do pick up the "Big Gun" and start clearing the house!!

Does this count as "tactical"?

A .22 for a meth head I guess if that is all you have then use it. But if you can afford another firearm I would def think about getting something a bit bigger...maybe a shotgun Meth heads are known to take multiple shots and keep attacking, and that is from much more powerful weapons than a .22...

I have the Mossberg. Great gun for what I wanted it for and I only paid 189.00 and then bought the 25 round mag for 20.00.
