    What percentage of your collection are rimfires?

    With the creation of this new .22 sub-forum, I'll throw this out there. I'm a big fan of rimfires, mine are all .22s (but I think the .17s will be welcome as well). I just did a quick headcount, and fully 25% of the armory here are .22s. About 2/3 are rifles and the balance are handguns. Actions represented cover the full range, I think: bolt-action, pump, semi-auto and lever-action rifles; SA and DA revolvers and semi-auto pistols.

    Brands represented are Winchester, Remington, Browning, Ruger, CZ, Charter and Smith & Wesson.

    What's in your rimfire collection?

    Just a Ruger 10/22 Takedown and Ruger Mark IV Hunter.

    If we're calling it a percentage then 13.33%, repeating of course.

    Just a Ruger Precision 17 HMR, so less than 2%.

    Almost 30%.

    Single shooters to auto-loaders, a good mix of actions and makers.

    I'd rather not list them all, but I'll say Buckmarks are my favorite pistols, and oddly the H&K MP5-22 is my favorite rifle.
    Honorable mention to my Izhmash Biathlon rifle, small, highly accurate, unique.

    There are two .22 rifles, one of which is my daughter's, from when she was a child.
    There's one .22 derringer.
    And there's one .22 conversion for a 1911.

    Our granddaughter's gonna visit in October.
    I'll haul out her mother's little rifle, and see if I can teach her how to use it properly.

    I've got a Remington 597 rifle, which I wish I didn't buy; and a Taurus PT22 that I'm glad I bought.

    Only 1 .22, a Smith & Wesson "M&P" pistol (I forget who makes those for Smith and Wesson). Probably about 6% of our "moderately well prepared" firearms collection.

    I know I should have a Ruger 10/22 but I have a hard time getting excited about rimfire.

    Twenty, between 17HMR, 22lr and 22mag.

    Handguns from Ruger(semi and SA), Browning( Buckmark), Sig(1911), H&R(9 shot BA), and Husqvarna(Nagant).

    Long guns from Ruger(10/22), Henry(Golden boys), Winchester(94), Marlin(39A), Stevens(bolt) and a CMMG conversion for the AR.

    Percentage wise, about 50%.

    I got rid of all my rimfire guns. I gave them to my sons who are now raising their sons and daughters. I just did not shoot them anymore and the boys wanted to train their kids with them. I only really shoot my carry guns anymore to stay in shape and the once a year sighting in of the game rifle. Maybe I will do more "just for fun" when I retire next December.

    I've got one .22 rifle, the Winchester Model 72 my dad bought at a hardware store as my first gun. I also have an Advantage Arms .22 conversion kit for my Glock 30, which I find very useful for general plinking. I had an old 9-shot H&R .22 revolver that was a great hunting/camping gun. Popped quite a few birds and such for that evening meal. Unfortunately it was stolen.
