There’s no better way to beat the COVID blues than plinking with a rimfire. It’s cheap, fun and you can work on the fundamentals of shooting without worrying about recoil impulse and noise. Take a look at a few rimfire options we think are perfect for plinking!
Ruger 10/22 Carbine
The Ruger 10/22 semi-automatic rifle is one of the best selling rifles in the world. It’s affordable, reliable, accurate and a ton of fun to shoot. The barrel is cold hammer-forged for longevity and easy cleaning and secured with a unique two-screw V-block system while the heat-stabilized glass-filled polymer trigger housing assembly is impact and abrasion resistant and made to withstand the elements.
Other features include a combination scope base adapter for Weaver-style, tip-off scope mounts and a rear flip-up sight and a front bead. Available in a plethora of stock options and finishes, the 10/22 makes a perfect rifle for plinking or small-game hunting.
