Rifle? Pistol? Revolver? Fun? Serious? Practical?
Help me buy a .22.
I haven't had a .22 in a long time. I used to have a Ruger single six and I used to have a Marlin 39A. I loved the rifle, the single six not so much. I currently have a .22 mag in both a semi-auto pistol and bolt action rifle. And I've got a .17 HMR. I'd kinda like a .22 in my home again. I'm thinking a Ruger 10-22 seems to be everybody's goto rifle, but an AR-15 style to match my current AR seems like fun... and that Chiappa 1911-22 seems like a fun gun. I saw one of those on a shooting program the other week and one just found its way into the LGS's display case... of course the Ruger Mark series .22 seems to be the gold standard...
SHTF situations aside, if you could have just one .22 for mostly fun and plinking, no hunting, which way would you lean and why? I've pretty much talked myself into a semi-auto, one way or the other, rifle or pistol.
