The OP wants a "reaonable price". CZ's are great, but they are a bunch of cash for a .22. I'm suggesting a Ruger 10/22.
Buy one at Wally World for less than $200. Shoot it as is. When the urge strikes to change, there is a whole raft of accessories for the 10/22.
And.......whoever sold Mom & Dad a .17 as a starter rifle/plinker should sell something else besides guns.
