    Plinking

    This has nothing to do with concealed carry, I hope that is OK.

    I am looking for a lever action 22lr rifle for plinking. For now I'm just looking but as always with all my guns it has to be durable. I don't have price range in mind yet but I think I would like to keep it around $500 or less. Might be I could get it for my birthday in Aug., going to be a hard sell though I am pretty sure the wife thinks I have too many already.

    I am hoping to solicit opinions.

    Thanks Guys!
    Chris

    My wife loves the little Browning 22 lever action. She keeps dropping hints. I want to check out the Henry.

    I used to have a Marlin golden 39a and that gun could shoot. Not sure if they still make them or not. Excellent accuracy for a lever.

    I have a Marlin 39A, a Winchester 9422 and a Browning Lever action .22. They are ALL GOOD TO GO. I have looked at a Henry but can not justify another .22 level.

    Henry .22, well under your $500 range, and a great plinker.

    Years ago when I was choosing a .22 lever action, I went with the Winchester 9422 because I just thought the 94 was the quintessential lever gun.

    Any of the above mentioned are good choices. I have a Henry and it's a great plinker for the money.

    Browning BL-22 gets my vote---very light and narrow---short lever-throw---really sweet shooter.
