    Ruger 10/22 is hard to beat.

        Marlin model #60 .22 cal. semi auto is cheaper and you don't need rotary clips and in my opinion it will also shoot tighter groups right out of the box.

          Go with the Ruger 10/22. It's a great little rifle to learn on, and it operates much the same as larger caliber rifles.

              Any of the pump rifles I have shot are a blast to shoot and will slow you down a bit so you are forced to better work on accuracy.

                The pumps like the model 61 are a lot of fun, but if you're looking for something to eventually transition to a full size rifle or duty rifle, again, I'd recommend the 10/22. They have a rotary mag., but you can buy extended 20 or 30 round conventional mags for them. A lot of shooting at a cheap price.

                  Well, if we are talking conversion to a larger rifle then why not an AR-15 w/ a 22lr conversion kit.

                  The Ruger 10/22's are a lot of fun though and their are more parts available for them than about anything out there. You could do a total custom job on one for relatively cheap.

                    yah i want to use this to become a decent shooter so i will be able to move up eventually to a higher caliber. i assume these rifles will be cheaper to buy in America, how much do they usually run?

                      They really vary, You can get an AR15 for around 600 give or take, but realize their are a bunch of different variations, companies, accutrements, ect. Nail down what you want, what you want on it, ect, ect, before jumping in. I'd say find a flat top AR15 with a removable handle, Match H-Bar or equivelant and then go pick up the 22lr conversion kit for it.

                      Maybe I should start out with this. How much cash do you have?

                        well i really don't want to spend too much, i was looking at maybe just 300$, and i do not think the ar15 is legal to posses in canada. i was looking at a bolt action rifle with some type of scope, also some i know nothing about, could you recommend a good scope?

                          I'm not a scope guy myself so somebody else will have to answer that but you should be able to get a nice 22lr used for less that $300. I have no idea where to get them in Canada or how you would import one to Canada though.

                              gunbroker.com if you want to buy used in the US. As far as new, see if you can get a copy of Shotgun News as it has everything in it.

                              I honestly can't think of a bad bolt action rifle to buy. All the ones I have shot have been dead on accurate and a joy to shoot.
