Ideally a cheap magnified sight not irons to make it more pick up and point.

The Ruger Collector series or pick up some take off sights from eBay.

The Primary Arms ACSS 22 6x scope at just over $100 is pretty hard to beat for plinking and newbies. Throw it atop a 10/22 and it's about all you'd need.

For new shooters too much magnification just shows how much they are shaking and wobbling around. An inexpensive Bushnell fixed 4x scope can be had for only around $50 -$60 and will give a precise aiming point while offering good eye-relief and a large field-of-view. I have one on a Henry lever-action .22, and beginners and experienced shooters alike get good hits easily with it. I took a non-magnified red dot sight off because it was less useful on the small targets I use for rim-fire plinking. My 10/22's wear variable power scopes. One is an old Bushnell 2-7x32mm Compact and the other a Nikon Prostaff Rimfire 3-9x40mm BDC. Similar scopes run about $130-$160.

Since I've done most of my shooting with peeps (M-1 garand and older browning t-bolt) I wanted the same thing for the ruger. I really didn't want to have to change the front sight or go to much expense as I may want to add a scope or redot later. I know a peep should be back on the reciever but for $14 I figured it would be worth a try. It's a 10 minute job to replace the elevator in the factory sight and you keep the factory front sight. A dot of orange on the front sight and I'll try it at the range in a couple weeks. The last picture shows the two elevators superimposed on one another.

Do you want a rifle or pistol plinker? An open site 10/22 out of the box is fun and easy to shoot. The anniversary model has high viz sights. Easy to use for young and old. I also have a MK 111 Target with Milet Red Dot. Fun to shoot yet one has to practice to steady the dot.

I have two MAIN type of Plinkers:

1) Semiautos: Ruger 10/22 with a Kidd trigger upgrade and a Sig Sauer P522 SWAT.

2) Bolt action. I have two precision plinkers with my Savage bolt action rifles. I like bolt action, though, since the user has to be more deliberate with their shots. They will. It cause them to pause, reacquire the target, and make more precise/accurate shooting.

I like the sights on my Design Contest Winner, for a quick handling plinker/fun gun, they're a nice balance between quick acquisition and precision, I'm also planning on adding a Bushnell TRS-25 red dot as well

A good set of Tech sights would work well too

I used a Nikon 3-9 woth BDC. Worked a hell of alot better than expected, you just memorize the shot locations on the BDC per the speed of the ammo your using, as I just use whatever I feel like that day. Sometimes it's fast, other times it slower. The slower is cross hairs at 25 yds, at 50 it's the bottom of the first drop. The faster stays cross hairs all the way through to 50, and at 100 yds is line between first bdc drop circle and third.

Get a BDC or mil scope, this way your not guessing when you stop at a store and they don't have that ammo that sighted to your scope, you just have to look at the speed and you'll be really really close I've seen. Just my experiences.
