I am an experienced shooter and own several handguns, however I have always ignored any and all .22's Due to the financial practicality of shooting .22's, I have given some serious thought to buying a .22 and I think that I am ready now. I am undecided as to whether i should get a semi auto or bolt action so I would love to hear suggestions on all of the above. I would prefer magazine fed, but not a requirement however I have no interest in single shot. I have seen a lot of popularity/hype over the 10/22 and I am not quite sure why so please do tell. Also if you have a bolt action that you like, let me know what it is. Long term durability and reliability is very important to me. thanks!
