    I'm a small group chasing junkie. I sometimes spend too much time & $ trying to get a poor platform working up to my standards. That's all too easy to do with a 10/22 & a S&W 15/22 imo.
    I'm trying to get my guns to hold a consistent 1.5-3.5 MOA group size but prefer sub MOA of course. Who wouldn't?

    I've been modding a 10/22 for a while now trying to shoot dimes at 100 yards, unsupported, prone position. I've trying to beat the guys shooting the >$5k kits without spending that in mods myself. Everyone's goals can be different of course.

    Henry lever action if you want to feel like a cowboy
    S&W 15-22 if you want to feel tactical (or want a ar trainer rifle)
    Ruger 1022 if you want a mag fed plinker
    Marlin Model 60 if you want a tube fed plinker.

    IMHO start with a bolt gun. Back that up with a nice single action 22 pistol. Both will last forever.

    Just ordered the Henry .22 carbine with the oversized lever. FEDEX dropped it at the local kitchen-table FFL, but I haven't been there yet to get it. I am dying to try it out.

    I have owned or currently own a Ruger 10-22 semi-auto, a Savage Mark 2 bolt action, a Henry lever action, a Marlin 795 semi-auto, and a CZ 455 bolt action. I could never get the Henry to be very accurate. The Ruger is now accurate but it cost hundreds of extra dollars to do so! My Savage Mark 2 was not accurate at all but my good friends was quite accurate...go figure! The CZ is very accurate and considerably more expensive than all the others. For good old plinking fun, it is hard to beat my Marlin 795 (I paid $85 new) and it is every bit as accurate as the CZ with CCI Standard Velocity ammo. I added an inexpensive Cabela's rimfire scope for $100 and I really enjoy using the gun and don't feel guilty banging it around when I take it with me. The only thing that stinks is the trigger, but I recently found a YouTube video by FogCityTactical that allowed me to decrease trigger pull to under 4 lbs. with a few simple modifications.

    Worthy goal IMHO.

    I wanted sub half inch at 50 yards for under $500 (not counting scope). Think I was under $400.
    Titan stock and GM bbl got me there w SK match (five shots .4" repeatable).
    Bought a used but like new international at good price and dumped the stock, Volq hammer the only internal change,
    Hell I still have the receiver laying around someplace.
    Kinda neat, has a 243 prefix (and I blow up groundhogs w .243 so yeah....
