    The S&W is an excellent choice and so is the Colt, which I got.

    Prices are all over the board so watch for sales.

    Definitely use the recommended ammo, avoid Remington Golden Bullet.

    One other thing. I dont like s&w in the least but the sw mp15-22 is the one i would get for a dedicated standalone 22lr ar15 pattern gun.

    Colt makes one thats a close second. Ruger has one but its just a dressed up 10/22. Cmmg makes one as does spikes tactical and a few others. But the mp is the best of the lot in my opinion.

    Shoot it for at least 1000 rounds before you start thinking about add ons. Right now extra mags is prolly the best addition. Just cuz we say its good doesnt mean you will ultimately like it. Thats why you need to spend some time live fire before buying addons and modding it. Pretty stupid to buy a bunch of stuff for it before you know if you REALLY like or not

    Prices vary. Try grabagun.com they are one of ftf vendors. The ones in local shops here run avg 100 more than sw. But thats brickmortar prices in wisconsin.

    If you like the sw why not get one one for him just like dad's kids like that sort of thing.

    Ok and for the record , the mossberg has a ton of problems holding the clip so it is not recommended.
