Our big problem is mandatory registration of all firearms, everything is on the government books. Unless you have something hidden.
I'm not sure google is a friend....

Well if you can own anything, then I'd suggest a 10/22 TD...and if it requires approvals then so be it.

Obviously its ammunition stockpiling and portability is second to none . But I'll leave all that alone as my main question is on the best action types and/or brands. My considerations are between the:

1. Very accurate 22LR bolt actions, like CZ452, for longer range and headshot accuracy+ less moving parts, ammunition friendly.

2. Faster repeaters such as the Remington 572 pump, Henry Lever and Ruger 96 for better self defence capabilities and still hopefully 'decent' accuracy?

3. Semi-autos like the ruger 10/22( hypothetically as Semi-autos difficult to obtain in Australia due to our left wing idiot government)

All to be scoped and open sights installed.

Thanks for anyones thoughts, hoping there are some other 22 nuts out there.
Its my understanding you can buy the S&W M&P 15/22 in Australia...

I have semis which are fun shooters ..have a couple of single shot for training and I have a Marlin Model 80 bolt action thats lights out. I think its the most practical in a one gun 22 LR choice, even if I lost or the magazines broke you still have a single shot.

I live in Australia too, one of the best options is the ruger american rimfire bolt action. Accepts ruger 10/22 mags which are easy to find down here and aren't expensive. Though if your looking for a rifle for self defense I would advise against the .22lr.

I have a 10/22 takedown and Savage Mark 2 FV-SR bolt action. Both are totally reliable and among my favorites.

If I had to choose only one, I would go with the Savage. It's lite, scary accurate and bombproof. That's what the Landry's use to hunt alligators with. It doesn't have the iron sights , but with a solid 2-7 scope it shouldn't be a big problem. I would recommend to get som stainless steel magazines. It just seems much smoother and never gave any problems.

Is there a law saying you can only have one 22? From a bug out stand point the 10/22 TD has a lot going for it, for the pure fun of it one of the AR look alike 22 would be great. If it's a classic feel you are after then an original JM Marlin 39A would be worthy of consideration.

Ruger American Rimfire is another fantastic option. My buddy's can hit clay pigeons at 100m with irons. It's seriously alarming

That Ruger Charger bring back memories of my foray into T/C Contenders. I thought gee, in .22 Hornet that'd be just the thing for quick shots at garden raiding woodchucks. Wrong. It's almost impossible to hit anything with a snap shot - much too much mass forward. It has to have a rest to steady it. By the time I found a rest the 'chuck was long gone.

I know there were guys using Contenders offhand for silhouette, but they could take all the time they wanted to draw down on the target, and the target waited for them indefinitely. Game won't.

Maybe OK if you have hands like an old-time lumberjack. Otherwise it's a waste of money. A Ruger MkII would be a whole lot better to carry on your walkabouts.
