Have a Marlin I picked up at the pawn shop few years ago. Has good, solid weight to it. Had to adjust aim. Now a bullet hits whatever I aim for. I love my .22.

What a great revolver, I have always wanted one of these, but they are expensive. Maybe soon. Does yours have the .22 mag. cylinder?

Marlin Model 60's are good. I received one as a gift and, in turn, gave it to someone else. I find that CCI ammo works best in them. They work well when doing crow patrol on the farm.

Currently, I shoot a Savage Mark II. I love the bolt action, and it takes a 32mm scope well. Even without the scope, it's very ergonomic when shooting off the iron sights.

i inherited a marlin 22, then bought myself a 10/22 takedown followed soon after by a taurus pt22 mouse gun and I've been itching to buy a s&w compact 22, but also kinda want a kahr cw380.

i like the simplicity of stocking up 1 caliber even though I do have an AR

Nobody mentioned subsonic 22s. It's practically like shooting BBs. No one will know.

My first rifle is a .22 single shot. I bought it when I was 12(44 years ago)with many days of saved lunch money. I just completely restored it last year. Looks better than the day I bought it. Strangely, its not my favorite rifle. That would be my marlin 30-30 I bought at 18. My FIL gave me an old Remington pump .22 that I really dig and can shoot a nat off a buffalos butt.

Oh, heck yea!! What's not to like about 'em? I have handguns, and rifles in quite a few different calibers. I reload most of 'em. BUT, nothing is as much fun as grabbing a brick of ammo from my ammo cans, and heading to the range with a couple of 22s.
I have 'em in revolvers, small semi-autos, target pistol with scope, bolt action, lever action, and auto-loader rifles. Very seldom is it that I go to the range, and not take at least a couple of my 22 along for the ride. Even when I'm going out to confirm zero on my hunting rifle, I always end the session with a 22 of some kind.

I shoot 22mags, 22lr, 22 shorts, and sub-sonics. I just love 'em, and now that the LRs are available in the $.02/round range (w/free shipping!!), why wouldn't everyone be enjoying them again!!

SOOOO, short answer to the O.P. question... sure do!!

I took my boys out to the range the day after Thanksgiving. We brought some pumpkins to shoot up. They mostly fired my .22s, though I brought a S&W Model 60 and a Springfield Range Officer 9mm along too. They both gave the revolver a try using .38 Specs but liked the .22s better. No recoil. My rifle is a Savage 93, a .22 magnum, and an incredibly accurate shooter. The boys thought it was cool when I told them I would shoot the stem off the pumpkin and did exactly that. I guess theyre still easy to impress!
