    If all you ever do is shoot at a square range, or you live in an apartment or something, i could see that.

    But a good suppressed .22 is so stupidly useful, if we talked about half the things it's great for, we'd be banned.
    I shoot at a couple of ranges but they are all pretty much square.

    The 22s are always crowd pleasers. I probably have 10 right now. I cycle through the 10/22s from compact, lightweight, standard and bull barrels. Like ARs, the more the merrier. For the pistols I admit my Ruger single six convertible has become a safe queen but the Ruger mkiiis, SW victory and buckmark have spit out a ton of lead over the years. I finally bought a cmmg conversion this year and it's also a hoot but the 10/22s are my go tos.

    Probably the one caliber the GF will always make a trip to the farm with me to shoot. She prefers her 2x scoped buckmark but I really dig her buckmark vision ultralite. I never have added a bolt gun or a lever, I've squeezed enough accuracy out of the 10/22s to never care.

    I once shot the primer pockets out of some 7.62x39 cases years ago at 25 yards. My buddy thought I already had them in my pocket so I had him mark 3 more. Hit 2 out of 3 dead center. He was impressed when I brought them back to the bench and poured out bullets and some recently loosened dirt out of them.


    You had one job, one.

    Rimfire is great as everyone has said. I have a couple mkii’s, revolvers, an old pump gallery rifle, and a Cmmg upper. But my current favorite is my Ruger precision in .17hmr.

    To answer the unanswered question from the OP, I believe the B14R is an awesome platform at the price point, IMHO. Factory trigger can be massaged but drop ins are plentiful should you decide to upgrade. I'm no rimfire snob (I've shot NRL22 matches with a Savage Mark ii fv-sr and finished mid pack) and I believe the B14R is pretty close to the sweet spot between box stock accuracy and the point of diminishing returns for most shooters (I'll tip my hat to CZ in this arena as well). Unless you are a top tier rimfire shooter ordering specific lots of match grade ammo or have more money than sense, the dang bergaras just seem to perform well when you feed them the right diet. I can talk rimfire all day, in many aspects/platforms, how deep down the rabbit hole do y'all want to go?
