Coworker recommended one to me based on what I told him I'd enjoy in a rifle. However, what would be a fair price for one these days? Seems everything of that nature has taken a bit of a price hike in recent months...

Old bump I know but now that this craziness is dying down, I'm seeing them here in TN go for around $300 new...used you can get them from 200-275...

I'd say $150-200 (used)

If you're gonna go that route though... you may as well get an air gun. that's what I shoot most of the time. they're cheap as dirt to shoot... the one I have shoots just a hair under the speed of sound... I guess it comes down to preference though. I like my firearms to pack a wallop. I've shot a 10/22 and it's a good lil .22, but .22lr just isn't for me.

Thanks for all the input guys, that's easily within range for an addition to the collection. I have a couple other guns that pack enough punch (Mossberg 500 and Remington 1911 R1), but I am more looking for something that I could possibly use for longer ranges. May end up with a bolt action for that, but at this price, I could pick one of these up too. :)

IIRC .22lr doesn't have that great of range... it's moderate, but are you actually trying to do mid-range varmint hunting? it's useable for that, but still... I've seen some varmints shrug off .22lr rounds

.22lr is good for about 100ish yards, I don't think he is looking to hit something a mile away. A .22lr rifle is an awesome round to have.
I just bought a .17hmr savage and it's good out to about 150 yards. I hunt squirel and rabbit with my .22lr and I think I will soon be using the 17 hmr for that as it's accurate as hell.

I have a savage .17HMR as well. Wicked little caliber - it's like shooting a laser beam. Can shoot the nuts off a fly at 100yds with that thing.

Sounds fun. Mostly looking for accuracy at distances I won't have to have a super expensive scope to hit. Not really into varmint hunting, I was raised that you eat what you kill. ;)

that's what I would recommend personally (eating what you kill) but then again, when you own a farm, and the blue jays are demolishing your walnut trees (squirrels too) and the crows are wrecking your corn crops... foxes eating all your chickens... most people don't take too kindly to that.

anyhow, I was going to recommend something like the .17, but I don't have any experience with those;as you can see though (from what others have said here) I've heard good things...
