You would most likely be happy with either. I would vote for the 10/22. As you get more "into" shooting, the Ruger can be modified to suit your needs/wants without buying another gun.
If the savage is bolt action then it would be a great target gun, super accurate. The ruger 10/22 is great and it has a lot of parts upgrades. It would be a great plinking gun, but won't be as accurate as the savage out of the box.Went to Walmart and they have a savage .22 for $137 or should I save more money and get the rugar 10/22. Will be used for mostly target shooting.
........ +1my suggestion is this. if you want to modify, customize or tinker with your rifle, get the 10/22. that rifle platform probably has the most accessories and parts of any rimfire made. you can literally build just about anything you could ever imagine with the 10/22. from tactical to practical, from plinker to competition target rifle. only your budget and imagination would limit you.
now if all you want to do is pull it out of the box and at most put a scope on it and go shooting, then the Savage rimfires would be a good option. Savage makes some pretty dang accurate rimfires right out the box and are dang sure worth the money. hope this helps you out with your decision.

Be sure it's not the 10/22 shorts that Walmart mostly carry even though your new to shooting and firearms u can Handel a full size 22 rifle just fine the 10/22 shorts are too small IMHO but other then that 10/22 is the best 22 gun I have ever owned and I do have a savage they are super accurate but ruger are much More fun to shoot and just as accuratedalefan88 said:Went to Walmart and they have a savage .22 for $137 or should I save more money and get the rugar 10/22.

I just went to a new lgs in my small town and they had one of those. Cool you can take it apart but he wanted $310 and I can go to mcsports and get a regular one for $240.Gh0zt36 said:10/22 takedown
Also keep in mind that rimfires are picky with ammo so you may have to try a few to find some that cycle well and shoot accurately.Thanks guys I been into cars all my life and can leave them alone. I have a feeling I might get the same way with guns so I think I might save up for the rugar
You're the first person I've seen say that. I'm glad to hear the news about Savage semis isn't all bad. They make such fantastic bolt action rifles it's a shame their semi-autos aren't better.I like my 64. I have two Ruger 10-22's and they are collecting dust.
