Let's see...for long guns, we have a Ruger 10/22 and a M77/22 bolt gun. Sold a Remington Nylon 66 when money was tight - wish I had it back. :frown:
For handguns...have an old Iver Johnson "Sealed Target 8" revolver that is a hoot to shoot, even if the sights suck. And an Advantage Arms conversion for the Glock 19. Sold off a Ruger Mk II Target pistol - liked to shoot it, but disassembly and cleaning was a pain. The SP101 revolver in .22 is on my radar...
Been stocking up on .22 LR ammo lately. While it is still relatively affordable...
I bought my grandson the Ruger 10/22 takedown as his first gun. I want to instill the importance of gun safety to him, he has been after me to shoot my Glock 9mm, he isn't ready for that yet. I did recently purchase a Phoenix Arms .22 pistol for $150.00, will be a xmas gift. I haven't shot it yet but hear it is great for the price. Does anyone have one ? and what is your experience with it ?
Here are a few that I own and all are solid. They are not in order!
1. Ruger MIII with threaded barrel- great little shooter!
2. Ruger 10/22- Mine is pretty custom and is a blast to shoot
3. S&W M&P 15-22- what can you say, the sucker is very reliable and it's like shooting an AR for nothing
4. Savage MKIIFVSR with threaded barrel and accutrigger- frankly this gun is a tack driver and easily out shoots my 800.00 Ruger 10/22 any day of the week. It comes with a a fluted threaded barrel, accutrigger, and pica-tinny rail. I got this for 230.00 and it maybe the best valued firearm I have purchased in quite some time.
You can never have too much fun with a .22, I have 2 10/22's and a dueling post, always like getting a bud or gal to go out setup and duel all afternoon.
Two people can spend $10 and have a HE** of a good time. and have something to laugh about all day.
I absolutely love my Ruger 10/22. Cheap to shoot, accurate, quiet enough and low in recoil I feel like it is something I can use to bring in people new to shooting. I have a 3x9x40 on mine and I have hit targets 200 yards away with a little estimation on how much the bullet will drop.
.22s are my favorite. If I could only have one gun it would be a .22. If money was not an issue, i think I'd be going on a .22 buying spree too. For now I have 5 rifles and 4 pistols.
I am a firm believer that one can't have enough .22's. My line up is as follows:
Ithaca M49 (single shot saddle gun)
Marlin 81-DL (tube fed bolt action from 1945)
Herbert Schmidt small frame (single action cowboy gun)
Smith and Wesson M&P22
Ruger Mark II 22/45
The next .22 on my short list is a Ruger 10/22.
Favorite .22 handgun, my Ruger Mark II Bull Barrel.
.22 rifle, I have an old Marlin/Glenfield Model 75c, that I bought right after I returned from Germany in 81. At some point, I'd like to get a CZ bolt action.
