A 22 is simple, cheap, fun to shoot and it still makes a reasonable bang sound.

The first gun I eer shot was a DSM34 my uncle sent from Germany during WWII. It was passed down to me when my dad no longer used it and I just recently gave it to my cousin.


About 20 or so years ago Winchester came out with a limited run of their famous model 52 and I bought one and love it.


At a gunshow many years ago I bought a Whitney Wolverine which I still have. The cocking piece was broken but I made a new one.


I've had several 22s over the years including a Remington Mohawk and a High Standard Pistol.


Love them all.

CZ-75 with CZ Kadet Kit .22 conversion unit installed. Accurate, fun, and reliable. Beretta 87BB, nothing but class!

I'm considering a browning Buck mark pistol. I still have my Harrington & Richardson Plainsman .22 rifle I got in the early 70's. Bolt action with a magazine. I never have put a scope on it. Surprisingly accurate like it is.

22 LR bored me to tears, but only long after I'd learned to shoot 9mm (via a SIGSauer P226, my first pistol in a larger caliber, owned about eight years). One of the Mark II's spoken of fondly on this thread was my very first, age 21, and I bought on layaway: couple bucks here and there, until I could buy it. Ammo was dirt cheap at that point and availability more than anyone needed. Mine was a bull barrel, meaning a little heavier I guess. Target sites, too. With match ammo, that thing was shooting stupefying groups at distance, the entire point I suppose.

The 10/22 here in WA can be amusing because building out a real quiet, as in non-obtrusive, suppressor onto a normal looking 10/22 is pretty easy. Buddy of mine did this. They're scary-quiet, all-considered. So was that on my buddy's Glock 19 with the same or another suppressor, I didn't ask him. We shot it with LEOs at the police range in Ravensdale some years ago, he has friends in high places, and is in cahoots with those who train the police in small arms and other tactics modified from SpecOps and other military They just looked the other way at the outdoor range: there is or was some question about actually "using" suppressors in this state, never mind their legality! I think times have changed for the better.

Loudest thing with that G19 w/subsonic was the clack of the action and the *whap!* of 9mm on paper. Bet it sounds equally disquieting into a side of beef, or... I don't know what brand of suppressor he likes. There are many, it's evolving technology too.

So no, no more 22's for me. If I had a burning need for a suppressed 22LR, I'd buy a Walther and the suppressor, a rather inexpensive combo once the tax stamp is out of the way. In fact AFAIK that combo is by-far the cheapest entree into suppressed firearms, if your state allows them. A Ruger 10/22, second cheapest. WA does, OR does not, I have no idea others.

^ I don稚 have a burning need for a suppressed .22, just want a stock 10/22 that I know the boys will love shooting. I知 not really into the 鍍acticool thing. I壇 rather spend the money I have on ammo or targets than modifications.
