To enhance your fun IMO, have plenty of mags preloaded before you get to the range. With 4 or 5+ mags ready to go I can enjoying a lot of shooting, then take a break to load them up again.
I dunno--even single feeding them I find I go way too fast with 22lr in general--there's a "zone" in concentrating on technique which forces me to slow down. Gratuitous plinking of bulk cheapo ammo--that's fun, but not something I'm especially interested in.

Had my MK III cut down to just over 2” and threaded. Runs my Rugged Oculus perfectly.

I have a bunch of grandkids and their friends, and I have a bunch of 22’s. Everybody reaches for the Winchester 9422 when they come to the ranch. Small, light, accurate. 2x7 Leupold scope on it. The star of the show around here.

Of course, finding one might be tough. I paid $85 for mine. Can’t do that now.

Holy kerpolio! I just looked that up on gunbroker and they are listed as high as 2K for a high grade! Take care of that puppy!

Handgun? S&W Model 17, aka K-22 Masterpiece with the 3Ts
Rifle? Remington 542 or Marlin 39a - the ability of those two (plus the revolver above) to shoot 22 S, L, LR, plus shot, subsonic, CB, etc. makes them a LOT of fun to shoot. Either of those two rifles, with their 24" barrels, and shooting subsonic will allow quiet shooting without a tax stamp for a suppressor

Stagpanther, I found the 9422 at a country gunsmith. He was fixing a 22 rifle I had taken apart and could not reassemble. While he was doing that, I examined the rifles he had in a corner. And there was a 9422 that was a bit beat up. I asked if I could look at it, and he said “for $85 you can have it”. I almost hurt my hand trying to whip out the checkbook. I had to refinish the stock and forearm, but it looks pretty good now. The oldest grandson has spoken for the rifle upon my demise. It’ll be in good hands.

Very nice story, all around.

What Prof Young is lacking in his list is a small mouse gun, so the NAA could be a good choce, but I'd recommend he wait for the new Sentinel to come out, that's the Sidewinder with the improved sights of the Pug. In addition to that, I'd get a small autoloader like the Beretta 21a or Ruger LCP. I know the LCP .22 is sketchy with reliability, but for a range gun that's fine and there's the off chance you might get one that works really well with a certain brand of ammo.

I'm considering getting one myself.

I used to think those things were something of a joke until I actually shot one. I like to compare them to primitive archery bows--really good for developing intuition skills.

If fun shooting is defined as plinking, the HK4 in .22 l.r. with a correct .22 extractor will deliver a lot of fun,


When I want to add quality, accuracy and durability it brings the FN 150 International to my mind. Like the Ruger MkII they can see in excess of 100,000 rounds without a single part breaking but with a nicer trigger.
