The overwelming consensus is that the Marlin is the better gun right out of the box, but the 10/22 can be made the better gun if you're willing to spend some money modding it. I decided on the Marlin because at this time, I'd rather have the better gun out of the box. Later on if I decide I want a gun to tinker with and modify, I'll probably then get a 10/22. It doesn't sound like a person could go wrong choosing either one.
That is it in a nutshell for me. Thanks for posting for me grampi. However, step up to the 22mag. The coyote would greatly appreciate it.
Seriously, I am a hunter that does not like to wound an animal so I take killing an animal seriously. Even though the coyote is on the bottom of my list, I am not into seeing them suffer,,, not one bit.
