Being Frugal but wanting a good solid left handed bolt action .22 rifle I've settled on the Savage Mark 2. These are full sized so fit like a hunting rifle with a 22" barrel. Wood stock and with the accu-trigger, I know it's not an Anshutz but it should shoot just fine. While I'm waiting for the background check to clear I had a Bushnell Banner 2 4X12 40mm AO scope mounted and bore sighted. I know I can throw a ton of money at a 10-22 or pay more for something else but this should shoot minute of shotgun shell out to 100 yds.
