    My wife's Browning Buckmark Camper. She's deadly with this thing!



    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    I have a slight addiction to .22s. Here are all the one's that I currently own and I'm sure I'll end up with a few more before too long.

    Ruger Mark III Hunter




    Sig Mosquito




    Firestorm 22





    Tanfoglio FA22 Buffalo Scout




    Winchester Model 67 (not a pic of mine, but looks just like it)

    My second-favorite gun I own... useless for self defense, but DAMN accurate for plinking and a lot of fun to shoot.

    It's a Hi-Standard Supermatic model 102 Citation, manufactured sometime in the late 60s. I inherited it from an aunt who passed away. .22 cal, 10 rd clip (having problems finding more magazines for it... any ideas?), 9" barrel with factory muzzle break.

    Shown assembled, and field stripped with a cigarette lighter for size comparison.





    Not to brag, on a good day I can hold sub 2" groups at 50 yards free standing with this gun, but most of my shooting is done in the woods, not at a range... I can hit bottles and cans at 150 yards probably 8 times out of 10. But I've put *thousands* of rounds through this gun, and probably shot it more than any other gun I own. It's cheap and fun to shoot, I love this gun. It could use rebluing soon, too. Anyone know a good 'smith in the greater Seattle area?

    Peace,
    Pete Zaria.

    Here are our plinkers.

    1. Ruger .22 Long Rifle Automatic Pistol.

    2. Springfield Model 55 B, from wife's grandfather.

    3. Wife's Ruger 10/22 Carbine, Walnut and Stainless

    4. Marlin Model 60 with Bushnell Sportview 6x40 scope. My first gun, now about 25 yrs old.

    5. Rossi Model 62 SA, stainless.

    We shoot all these on a regular basis. Nothing more fun than bouncing cans around, or shooting shotgun shells off of logs, or just seeing what type of grouping you can get on a piece of paper. Everyone should have a 22 to plink with.

    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    Hey, anything can be useful for self defense, especially if the rounds go where you want them to!

    (having problems finding more magazines for it... any ideas?)
    I know nothing about that gun, but the magazine looks a whole lot like the one for my Ruger 22/45. (Okay, so all .22LR mags probably look alike, but I thought I'd chime in... )

    That Hi Standard Pete is a beaut gun ....... worth some bucks too IMO.

    My stuff - and JD has seen these I think ......... the Phoenix is cheap and cheerful - but still fun and better with the long barrel. My best for accuracy is the Mauser Obendorfe rifle - and the 22/45 is a good shooter too for pistol. (first two rifle pics are old - somewhat grainy)

    This one is my favorite grab and go gun. Springfield M6 Scout Survival Rifle. While it's only single shot it folds to fit in a backpack, it has a .22lr and a .410 over/under setup that weighs almost nothin. Small enough for the kids to love it, useful enough for me to love it. It holds 4 shotgun rounds and 15 .22 rounds in the stock, so I need nothing else if I want to bugout (or stow it in the airplane for survival). I've got a red-dot on mine, one of these days I'm going to try and fabricate a 3 or 4 power detachable zoom for it.
    A bit more info on the scout HERE:






    These two are my Marlin 880SS. 3x9x?? Scope is kinda cheap but a very accurate gun. Sorry for quality of these.




    Finally, my newest toy. A Smith and Wesson 22A. Forgive the target pic, just a little proud of my wifes' 2nd target from the first time she's ever fired a gun, using the 22A. She managed it with little trembling hands. (of course after a little coaching from yours truly)

    JD, I have that same exact rifle in .17HMR. Mine is topped with a Tasco 6-24x40 Varmint scope. Very accurate. Will be taking it out in January to West Tx to help my friends clear jackrabbits on their ranch.

    Ha, well good point about defense there - but I wouldn't ever feel "well armed" with a .22, regardless of my skill with it - I'd be afraid of perforating the attacking BG with lots of little holes, and not stopping the threat.

    I've been tempted to try some mags designed for different weapons, many look like they'd fit. You can find actual Hi-Standard magazines on auctionarms, etc.. but they cost a pretty penny.

    Thanks :) I once got it appraised at a little over $1,500 but that was a couple years back. I couldn't part with it for anything under 10 times that, because of the story behind it, and how attached to it I am. ... Well OK, maybe 5 times that :)

    However, since it's such a nice piece and I intend to hang onto it for a long damn time, I should invest a few bucks in it and have it professionally re-blued, a ramp job, some new mags, etc... Does anyone know a qualified smith to work on an antique target piece? Thanks.

    Peace,
    Pete Zaria.

    I wish the cycling was a little more smooth, and the mags were held in place a little tighter, but other than that I love this thing.

    Have fun out on the ranch, my usual targets for the .17 are clay pigeons on edge at 100-150 yards, each pigeon will take about 3 or 4 hits before they bust. I actually bought mine to help a co-worker with a ground hog problem, never got to solve that one though.

    Have fun with them wrascally wabbits!
