    IMHO, when it comes to cheap .22 ammo, your best bet is a manually operated rifle (bolt, pump, or lever). For handguns in this caliber, a revolver is best.
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    For plinking sure, but it is hard to beat the ar conversions/22 onlys for learning and adapting to a manual of arms without beaking the bank.

    In stressful situations one reverts to their training or lack thereof.

    I agree, if your goal is training on the cheap...I have an Advantage Arms .22 conversion for my Glock 19 for this reason.

    However, the OP stated:

    "My main concern is that it should be reliable, I don't want to worry about ammo when it comes to a fun plinking rifle. I just want to shoot whatever I can get, no excuses."

    Sounds like he is looking for a reliable, fun plinker. In that case, the nod goes to a bolt, lever, or pump rifle.

    I want my plinkers to go "bang......bang.....bang.....bang" all day long.

    Not "bang..bang..bang..jam......bang..bang..bang..bang..jam"

    Even though the jams/misfires with cheap .22 ammo are not life threatening when you're just out shooting for fun, dealing with them does take some of the fun out of shooting for me. I'd rather shoot a bit more slowly, and have the satisfaction of an arm that just keeps working no matter what.

    JMHO.

    I have had a Colt M4 .22LR for about 8 weeks. I have put about 4000 rounds thru it and cleaned it once. The only issue has been 2 dud rounds - good hits but they did not fire. This is the the most fun gun I own. I chose it due to the feel and simularity to my regular AR's. So far it has been OUTSTANDING!

    I have the colt import. I got it because I have some ar 15's. It would not digest remington bulk pac ammo. It has a adj tensioner for the recoil spring. I had to play with the gun a bit till it funtioned right. I realy like it for my purpose. however if a person wants a good 22 for normal use they could do alot better.

    How are you holding it? My friend has a GSG-5 and it jams if I hold the magazine while firing. Otherwise it works fine.

    I held one of these at the local fishing store/watering hole and I have to say that the build quality is excellent. I would love to see what it shoots like with a red dot.
    I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit

    I own M&P15-22 and highly recommend it. The only disadvantage is it lacks a flash hider (mostly for looks).

    Externally it operates exactly like a real AR15 including fully functional bolt catch/release. Perfect training+fun tool.

    It eats almost all the ammo very reliably (i.e. whole 550 federal walmart cheapo ammo pack without one jam). The only notable exception is the CCI Velocitor ammo, that jams about 1 in 25 rounds.

    I wish my glock AA kit was that reliable (it is at best more like 10% jam rate instead of 0.1% I see with 15-22).

    I'm strongly considering getting the M&P .22 as a shooter/training tool. Cheap to play and cheap enough to buy.

    Ok, I have a question. When they go from .22 to .223, why does the price triple? The manufacturing cost has to be approximately the same...
