Yeah, I have a bunch of .22 rimfires, rifles, pistols, revolvers. .22 LR is easy to get good accuracy from, most of my menagerie shot better than I can hold them from the get-go.



Of all the calibers I shoot, and I shoot and load (handload) a lot of them - I have more .22 than any other caliber, easy. Probably next in "popularity" in my safe is 30/06.



Even have an old Belgian Browning autoloader rifle, in .22 Short, and a Beretta Minx, also .22 Short.

I have a 4" S&W 617 10-shot revolver with a Burris FF3 on it that is just flat-out fun.

Planning to get a Nelson Custom .22 conversion kit to put on a Springfield Armory TRP for more fun.

Hmmm... bought my first and only .22 (Ruger 10/22) 22 years ago.

Lots of 2's in that thought... Anyway, I still have the rifle and while it's showing plenty of "battle scars" from dozens of trips around the West I've kept up on it's maintenance and still runs great.

I'm not nuts about 'em but I can't imagine having a gun safe without at least one good .22 in it.

No handgun is more fun to shoot than a Ruger Single Six. I bought this one new in 1959, and it still locks up tight even though untold thousands of rounds have traveled through its little pipe. It still looks great except for the finish worn clean off the grip frame after 59 years.

Wont dispute that!! I have a model six with .22lr and .22mag cylinders.

Another fun one is my Ruger Mark III target I bought back in 1990-ish. Other than being a little quarrelsome with the take down, it is super fun to plink with.

I'd rather paint every ceiling in my house than clean a Mark lll. Don't believe I have cleaned mine since 1998.


They are a lot of fun though.

You have to hold the rear release with your right hand, while gripping the barrel with your left hand, then lift your left leg 6" off the ground, hop 3 times and say the magic words.

Easy peesey.

It feels reassuring to see others like the 22 cal firearm too.
Even though I own other caliber guns, I think I like my 22s more than any other.
If I were to keep one caliber it would probably be the 22s.
Man, it's great being in America where we have our 2nd Amendment.
