    Sorry for a dumb question

    Plan to buy a NAA Pug. Not clear on the ammo though. Is WMR the same as 22 Mag. Told you it was a dumb question.

    Yes. .22 WMR is .22 Winchester Magnum Rimfire, same as ".22 magnum." The nomenclature sometimes gets confusing. You probably know, but just in case, don't shoot .22 Long Rifle ammo in the magnum cylinder.

    I've had a .22 Mag mini for years. It was my last-ditch gun for a long time 'til my wife claimed it. ;) She has tiny hands and actually enjoys shooting it. I've been looking at the pug for awhile now and am considering getting one of those (hey, any excuse, right?). ;) Good luck.

    gilfo, one of the many nice things about this forum is that when someone asks a basic question, no one jumps on them for it.

    Just make sure you don't try and use .22WRF ammo. It is different. And although fairly rare, it is out there.

    There ARE such things as dumb/stupid questions............

    WRT firearms, ammo, etc. , the dumbest/stupidest questions are usually the one(s) not asked.

    There's nuthin' dumb about your querry.

    Sorry? Apologies are only necessary here when the mod team tells you they are warranted.

    Never be afraid to ask a stupid question. They are easier to correct than stupid mistakes.

    Bought one just because and is kinda fun and cheap to shoot. It can be hidden just about anywhere.
    Never argue with idiots - they'll drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.
