    An Optical Red Dot or a true Holographic? They are not in any way the same.
    You are probably not going to be able to keep the price down on a Holographic weapon sight.

    I put a TruGlo red dot on my 22a for less than $40. Works great in most lighting situations with its adjustable brightness.

    BTW - The 22a is a great value & reilable shooter.

    There is a little plastic (Nylon maybe) recoil pad that wears on these but is extremely inexpensive. Brownells has them as well as S&W. Seems I recall it needing to be replaced at 500 or so rounds. I have the same pistol and absolytely love it. Ton of fun to shoot! Nover bothered to add any any accessories though..

    Good buy!

    I've often wondered about those S&W rimfires. Are they any good?

    The red dot will be great. Bought a 22a about 7 years ago, great plinker. IMO the red dot takes the challenge out of plinking, so I took it off.

    Nice! Everyone should have a plinker, just to keep the fun in popping off at tin cans, etc. when out in the woods.

    TomEgun, I'll be waiting for the range report on your new combo. Been looking at them for a few months, and am thinking about a trade for one of my wheel guns.
