I already have an AR-15. What is the most cost effective way to have a .22LR rifle?

Ruger 10/22, by the time you buy magazines it's a wash, and a dedicated barrel is way more accurate.

Even now, they are like $200.

I don't know anything about this store, just the first result I saw. They are everywhere, and no doubt will be on sale July 4th at at least a few major retailers.

I really like the m&p 15-22. if you get one just stick with the 25 round smith and Wesson magazines, mine doesn't seem to like the Plinkers

I like the M&P 15-22, but because it looks too similar to my ARs, I would go with the Rugar 10-22 Takedown model: https://www.impactguns.com/Semi-A...121-11112/

And get yourself some mags:

The Ruger 10/22 has been around a very long time and very customizable. The S&W 15-22 is great too and also VERY customizable. The pros of the S&W 15-22 is that you can equip it with all your AR components (except buffer tube, bolt carrier, upper, etc). Any of these 22s would be a great addition to your collection! Good Luck!

I want to teach my kids (6 & 8) how to shoot and get them comfortable.

SIDE NOTE
I typed COMFORTABLE but my auto-correct wrote "corruptible."

Get a 15-22 m&p. If you are tight on money, you can get a cmmg conversion kit (magazine and bolt) but they don't shoot the same and makes your ar dirtier.

If it wasn't for the kids, I would have recommended to go with an ar-9 instead as they are more fun to shoot. If it's for young kid, you might be better off with a bolt action 22lr or a cheaper 10/22.

Quietest 22LR for training with youngins: Bolt action suppressed

Most like AR15 but much less money M&P 15-22

Most aftermarket support and tons of fun 10/22 Takedown

If it was just for messing around, my 15-22 is tons of fun to shoot, but my bolt with subs and QB22 is quieter than my gamo if the pellet breaks the sound barrier.
