    Can anyone recommend a good plinker? I'm looking to spend 200-500 for one...Would that be adequate?

    Just as the name says. Rimfires, the firing pin strikes the rim of the casing. On a centerfire, the firing pin hits a primer located at the center of the casing.

    Pretty much any ruger or browning .22 pistols are cool for plinkers.

    You have any experience with CZ rifles? I thought they always looked cheesy with the exposed magazines and hogback stocks.

    a great plinker is a ruger 10/22, easily modified/upgraded.

    I am SERIOUSLY considering trading in my 9mm for a .22 target pistol like that... I would have to either try to trade or sell and rebuy..

    The 10/22 is a good choice, and there are so many ways to mod them down the road.

    yeah, they have had some jamming issues, but that is only with the double stack clip that some come with....we sell the single stack and people buy those faster than we can keep in stock
