Every gun owner should own a 10/22, in my opinion.

You can make shots at 100 yards pretty consistently w/ a .22 but after that the bullet really starts dropping and losing envergy. The ballistics chart on the cheap Wal-Mart bulk pack of .22s shows about 3 1/2 inches of drop at 100 yards.

It depends on your definition of "good". Shoot the factory bbl. for awhile and if you're not happy then get an aftermarket one. My $100 GM barrel will hit a clay bird or pop-can everytime @ 100 yards, easily.
I'm happy with that for a 22lr plinker.

FWIW I usually shoot my paper targets @ 50 yards because the wind isnt as big a factor. But 100 yards is great for plinking w/ a 22.

eta: I have a mil-dot reticle scope...so I just use the 3rd or 4th dot down @ 100.
The center crosshair is zeroed for 50 yards.
