CZ makes some of there models in 22 hornet, should be available at wholesale or anywhere else that sells cz
Sorry I don't ice fish or hunt rabbits, but I did stay at a Holliday in express last night.

  I am not sure if you are asking a qestion or not first off an H&R is crap but so is TC just more money I have the TC.  I have also had expensive air guns that the scope rides in the barrel pure junk IMO no matter how much you spend.  You. could stick your hand in a bucked of shit and pull out a rose go for it if you feel like gambaling.

Jimmy808? If H&R and TC are both crap, what would you suggest? Sorry to ask, but I'm trying to buy a .22LR right now and really unsure which to get and which to avoid, so this thread is most helpful thus far.

Which would you reccomend, and why? Please and thanks Jimmy808? Or anyone else....

Some times a rifle is cheap to buy because it was cheap to make and some corners may have been cut.  They may not be as accurate as some much more expensive guns.

I have a semi-auto H&R in .22 magnum that is quite accurate and dependable.

However to call a gun "crap" is an extreme personal opinion.

If someone said that H&R rifles were probably less accurate that more expensive guns, I would listen to that advice.  When someone says they are "crap" I would not put too much value to that extreme view.

Ok, so what would a more desireable gun brand/make be? Browning? I mean .22 shooting as long as its accurate, depenadable and doesn't jam I'd say its fine. I don't want a cheap 'bottom of the barrel' gun, but for squirrels, rabbits, and fox it doesn't have to be top of the line either. I don't want to spend 2k on a .22 so what is a reasonably priced, accurate and dependable "non crappy" .22?

Is pretty much anything that can be bought at wholesale or basspro going to be "crap"???

LOL, I didn't take it any other way than just your opinion brother :) prolly just cuz you've had some jam or whatever on you. You're free to say crappy. Its not "extreme" IMHO.

No worries :) as long as I can learn about guns who cares what who thinks is crappy? I just need help selecting a decent, reasonably priced .22 be it hornet, ruger or whatever. But the more insight the better!

Crappy crappy crap crap! Hehehehehe

A .22 hornet is not a .22 rimfire made by a company names "hornet".  It is a different cartridge all together(google it).  A center-fire round that would actually be a good moderate range fox/coyote round.

When buying a rifle you can pay a whole lot for a very accurate gun with superior fit and finish or you can pay a lot less for a rifle that is "plane jane" and maybe a little less accurate.  Any of the big name gun builders would make a decent .22 rifle.  (Browning, Winchester, Remington, Marlin, even Cooey) They would not be in business if they didn't.  You sometimes can pay a whole lot for the name on the rifle and not get a gun much better that a cheaper one.

I like to classify guns (and many things) as poor(not poop), fair, good, very good, excellent.  Rather than using "crap" as a classification.

H&R handi rifles are crap! TC encores are better finished but its a hinged action single shot the design doesnt lend itself to great accuracy potential, although they can be made to shoot. I have already suggested the cz line for hornets, ruger makes a 77 in 22 hornet, and the other brands jimmy listed are also good choices. As far as rimfires go huntress depending on budget and action preference I would suggest henry lever actions (finish isnt bad and they seem to be very accurate, and seriously who doesnt love a lever gun) the CZ 452 is a very nice choice at a reasonable price point, a savage mark 2 will get the job done but wont win any beauty contests, and if you want a semi auto you cant really go wrong with a ruger 10/22

The gun I use for coyote calling will not win any beauty contests but it works for me.
Its a Savage M24 in .222 over 20 gauge.
