Stoeger Cougar 9mm or a folding stock compact Ruger 10/22 with night sites and a 25 round magazine. Both mid (to low) 300s.

Mid 300 for a 10/22? Used or new? Bass pro has them for somewhere around 220 or so (I can't remember exactly), but they just come with a 10 round mag. I think I paid around 270 new (and that was with 2-525 boxes of ammo), but that was with the extra for the Hardwoods paint scheme. So, I paid about 240.

You can get a standard synthetic stock 10/22 at WalMart for about $179. I purchased the short model, hardwood stock and truglo sights new at the GA400/Hwy53 pawn for $219. If you want to do a folding stock or something like that get the WalMart version. Watch out for the larger mags, I have a RamLine 30rd and it jammed up bad on its 3rd use this weekend. The good 50 round mag for the 10/22 is about $80. The 10 round is standard and seems to be a good mag.

Yea, I just stick to the 10 rounds (x 3 mags). I'm already in a world of hurt if I must rely on a .22 for SD anyway (with my other options, that is). $220 was a high number...I think that must be wrong. I think Bass Pro was more like $180-185 with about $50-60 for the different paint scheme. The all-weather one was over $400, though.

Butler Creek hot lips 25 rounders seem to work OK for quite awhile. They are not that pricey, like $20.

The BC Steel Lips ones are the hot ticket, and there are others (alum bodies, can be taken apart, etc).

I have a 50 rounder that is worthless if you put more than 40 rounds in it. i think its a ramline, but i dont remember. it aint wurf a crap really though.

i think the drum mags are more reliable, but other than the reg 10 rounders, the butler creek ones are the way to go. it's tough to find the steel lips ones locally though. bass pro has always been sold out.

25 rounds of 22 goes very fast, but is very cheap and lots of fun. also its worth it to shell out for the mag loader, handling all that 22 takes forever mag after mag after mag

Mid 300s is with a Hot Lips 25 round mag, compact model with the night sights and a new folding stock. So, when you add it all up, it comes to low to mid 300s depending on where you get the parts.

The exact details weren't there at first. But yea, I'd go with the .22. Do you have a good .22 rifle already?

The compact doesn't have night sights, they are like TruGlo sights, they need some light but are nice and bright in most situations. But they do NOT have tritium inserts.

I have a P22, I don't have any rifles at the moment. A carbine and a scatter gun are both on my list.

Also, all the handguns I have currently are sub compacts, so I may decide on the Cougar instead to have a larger HD handgun. From what I hear it soaks up the recoil and is very accurate, yet it wasn't very large in my hand.
