    Six gunning around

    My last day off, my girlfriend and I went out and did some casual plinking with out Ruger single six pistols. Lots of fun to just shoot and not worry about score, training or tactics for a while.
    We both own single sixs. Mine is a new model and hers the old model. some nice leather to fit em ,old plastic bottles and empty shotgun hulls and we had a heck of a fun time. Did a little quick draw and some long range plinking.
    sorry no pics, she forgot the digital camera she owns.

    Single sixes are hard to beat! When my son moved to Oregon, guess what gun he wanted to take with him? I miss the old girl...

    I like mine a lot - and it is sometimes a toss-up with a ''.22 session'' whether to use that, a Smith K-22 or go semi with 22/45.

    Something tho about the SA fella - very traditional and nice to shoot. Only downside for me is loading and unloading - just a tad tedious sometimes!

    plinking is fun. my family will go and plink with the 22's. sometimes you got to leave the duty weapon in the holster and have fun shooting.

    The only thing that I enjoy shooting more than .22 pistols is a BB gun.

    Rimfire Plinking. I love it.
    My S&W Model 41 is my preferred plinker ~ flawless, accurate performance & (of course...10 Extra Mags really add to the fun)

    My favorite .22 six gun was a Harrington & Richardson.
    Oh why did I ever trade it back? Great FUN wheelie.

    I love to fire .22's. All I had was a Browning Buckmark but then one day at work I thought "I NEED to get a .22 revolver".

    I went to my local (and the one I always go to) gun shop to look for .22 revolvers. They didn't have any single sixs in stock but he pulled a Heritage Arms .22 from behind the counter. It was nickled and was in the box with the mag cylinder and a neat belt buckle.

    $120 later (okay, 10 minutes) I was "out the door" with my new (used) Heritage.

    I use it in the back yard all the time. Fun as heck pistol to fire. Reminds me of the old timey cap guns that I had as a kid (with the nickle plating).

    With the .22's there is no real serious training but mostly just plinking. Anything that looks like it would make a good target becomes a target (and yes, I am aware of what is beyond).

    I want to find a "cap gun" type belt like I had as a kid (and that would fit me) that the pistol will fit into and the silly "texas ranger" type hats that came with the cap gun rigs just so I can be 10 again
