    My daughters CZ Scout! The only issue is that it has a pink stock - great for my daughter, and when I shoot it I am "sighting it in" or otherwise "troubleshooting" it for her.

    For Fun-on-a-Bun without breaking the bank, 22LR get high marks. In that category, I'm rather fond of the S&W M&P15-22...

    I agree. For a rifle, the 10/22. For a handgun, a Ruger MK I-IV. (I was going to say a full-size CZ 9mm, until I realized that it costs 5x as much to shoot and isn't nearly 5x as fun.)

    Can't argue with the grins-per-buck with the 10/22s... I've got five of 'em. But for centerfire fun, I'm liking my SKS more and more. Ammo was cheap, the stripper clips load the gun in a jiffy, and stuff flies downrange when hit. The Mosin-Nagants might challange the SKS if the action wasn't so sticky (even after some polishing).

    We never fail to have a great time with my Remington 597 .22. The XD40 is fun too, but like others have said, not 4 or 5 times as much!

    I'd say my Glock 30 with the .22 conversion but it's a pain in the . . . fingers to load the mags. My CZ-82 is a hoot to shoot. With reloads, the costs is pretty low.

    It's a toss up between my 1948 Remington Fieldmaster Pump .22, my Browning Buckmark semi-auto .22 pistol, and my Henry lever action .22. Cheapest fun you can have on the planet with a gun in your hand. Take a brick out in the woods with these three guns and you'll come back wishing you had taken more.

    My Ruger Mark II followed by my 10/22. When I was a kid my cousin had a Browning lever action .22 that was a lot of fun to shoot, never seen a more accurate .22.

    Loved shooting my Mausers (1 German, 1 Yugo) when I could find ammo for them. Now I love shooting my Escort Aimguard 12 gauge. It's a lot of fun to shoot clays with despite its 18" barrel!
