Welcome to CGN. Ammo types vary and recomendations depend on your use. Hunting, target shooting? Cleaning chemicals vary as well. I Use a boresnake and Hops #9 for cleaning and Winchester gun oil for lubrication. I have had good success with both.

Both are relatively inexpensive and can be purchased at most Wal-Mart stores!

Yes people from the sight will meet up and shoot or do build party's. Sometimes just regular parties. :party::party::party:

Oh, back to your original questions. For a 22 rifle just try different ammo until youfind one she likes. Most will be fine in the Marlin. I just use a bore snake and some Break-Free CLP for everything.

Look up Tactical Turkey Shoot on 11/7 in Burro Canyon. You can meet lots of crazy people there. I'll be there also.:D
