barrel length

I am going to buy my first 10/22 soon so not much knowledge of these guns yet. I see where Kidd sells several length barrels including a 20" inch barrel. If I prefer shooting at longer ranges would that be my best choice in barrels? Also could someone elaborate on twist that they mention when looking at different barrels and which would be best for my style of shooting.

Much of this has been covered in other discussions. Check out the thread at Best "bang for the buck" barrel?

And at Walmart K 10/22 22 barrel


(NB: I realize that the search functions don't seem to return much of value).

First, before you get hung on any one particular name, brand, style, etc, start doing your homework. Read, look, read, search, read, read, search, read...get the idea. It's ALL been asked an answered both here and at RimfireCentral so don't rush into any one idea and then wish you did it differently later on.
Not a straight answer to your question but better to cover all the bases now at the "not much knowledge yet" stage.
In general though...barrel length is a generally just for looks although it's usually a 18" or less as longer than that the projectile starts losing performance aspects. Length is also a factor for balance and appearance.
Twist rate all depends on what ammo you'll be using. Plan that ahead of time.
