My grandfather passed away around 3 years ago and recently we found two rifles in the closet hidden in the wall. One is a 1987 Ruger 1022 with a cheap scope and the second, a 1986 browning .22. Since my grandmother has no need for them, shes willing to give me one and my cousin another.

What would be the "better" choice of the two? I was planning on taking the Browning, because i can always buy a 1022 almost anywhere.

any help is appreciated

Ruger 10/22s can be had on the cheap anywhere. The Browning .22 is probably a levergun and therefore classy and classic. Also, Browning .22s don't pop up every day. Rugers, on the other hand, pop out of the ground like hippies at Woodstock :)

BROWNING BROWNING BROWNING! AND PICTURES WHEN YOU GET IT!

My father has a Browning SA-22, an old one and a T-bolt, which is even older. Both are fine rifles. The SA-22 is very accurate with follow up shots and a joy to shoot. The T-bolt is the most accurate .22 I've ever shot.

Go with the Browning. 10/22's are popular mostly because they are economical, a Browning is a gun with a legacy and a sound design.
