Recently picked up a CZ 455 Lux, the one with the 28" and change barrel, and the tangent rear sight like a WWII Mauser. Have not shot it yet, but am looking forward to give it a try.



Recently picked up a "brick" of Remington "Thunderbolt" .22 LR High Velocity for $12 at Bi-Mart. Prices and availability of ammo are more or less back to normal. I could make a political comment here but won't.

The Ruger Super Single Six was the first handgun I bought back in 1973
and I love that thing so much that I sometimes think it would be the last handgun I'd keep if I had to part with all others.
Came with both cylinders; just wish I had kept the box.

Planning to get a Nelson Custom .22 conversion kit to put on a Springfield Armory TRP for more fun.
Is your 617 pre-lock?

.22lr is the best caliber ever invented. Anyone who would dispute that is a fool. Next subject?

In 1955, my uncle came home on leave from the Air Force. He had recently purchased a brand new Marlin Model 39A lever action .22 rifle. I was 12 years old and really liked the cowboy lines of the rifle, so he gave me a box of long rifles and told me to be careful and go have some fun, I loved that rifle, and hated to give it up when he left. Two years ago my dear uncle passed away, and when cleaning out his home for sale, I reached way back in his bedroom closet, and there was the Marlin, looking brand new, as if I was the last one to shoot it decades ago. At first, knowing that the Marlin is now a classic antique in 99% condition, I babied it and just hung it on the wall. But it seemed such a waste, so this summer I shot hundreds of rounds through it, what a joy. Solid as a rock and dead accurate out to 100 yards with open sights. I have several .22 rifles and hand guns, but the Marlin will always be my favorite shooter.

I love a good .22 and lament that every time Iím about to finally break down and go buy my 10/22 something else comes up. Of course the most recent example was a kayak purchase so thatís on me. Still, I definitely want to get that 10/22 and start putting some rounds through it. I also have a Savage bolt action .22 Magnum and a Sig 1911-22 which is basically a Sig branded German Sport Guns 1911-22. Itís a great shooter and a lot of fun.

I have a Winchester Model 69 which is similar but has a five round, detachable magazine. One for .22LR, .22L. and .22S. It was my great uncle's, and made in the 1930's. It is in almost new condition, but I don't have a pic unfortunately.

I honestly always found them boring until I bought my son's S&W 15-22 carbine. 22 in pistols never did it for me, but this rifle IS fun to shoot
