ya know, ya just can't beat a 22 for shooting, don't care what it costs, shooting it is a hoot, for everyone involved.
i've a collection of the old gallery 22 pumps, learned to hunt squirrels with an old pump 22, dem suckas didn't have a chance when i was around, and then you have lever actions, damm are they western, i even have one with the big round handle like the dukes shooter, hehe, at one time was pretty sure i could give him a run for a dshooter. lol.

happy friday ya smucks

Boy I have so many 22ís in the safe right now. Got me a Henry my wife picked up for me while I was deployed last go round. She was a Range Master at Ben Avery for the 1000 Man Shoot and they offered a hell of a deal on it. My FIL actually got to shoot in it and has the same one he fired during the event. Last year I purchased a little speed loader at the NRAAM in Atlanta for my 15-22. That thing is amazing! Of course I made the mistake of letting my 15 year old boy see it and try it out. Good thing I have a good pile of ammo laying around!

I got my girlfriend a Marlin 795 for Christmas, painted the stock blue so it really stands out. Then on her birthday i got her a matching ruger sr22.

22's are the best for all around fun

Definitely want to pick up a pump action. My old man has been trolling for a Remington Fieldmaster for years. He really wants one but he won’t buy it unless he gets a smoking deal. Just his nature.

There have been so many over the years.
I have to say that the only one I genuinely disliked was a Walther P-22 that would creep itself out of the fire position every 5 rounds or so.

I'm just getting back into them within the last year or so.
Build a super short 22 AR (stupidly fun), got a Henry for Xmas, a few pistols, and am now upgrading my old 10/22. Even have a couple 22 cans in jail. Need to stock up on sub-sonic ammo.

Even sold a couple nice 22's recently. ;)

My favorite memory as a young teen was up in Payson at my friends parents cabin. I basically learned to shoot irons accurately on one of those pump octagonal barrel 22ís. Thing was super accurate and we had fun shooting 2 liter bottle caps from 40 yards. Biggest hoot in the world for me at that age.

Saw a Ruger precision 22lr bolt that takes the 10/22 mags on sale recently on gun deals ... anyone try one yet?

I still have the 3 org ones Dad bought for us in yokuska Japan.
winchester tube fed. 2 have been shot but maybe 500-100 times ones a lever gun. the other one was mine and been shot consistanly from 1968/69 when we got them till 10 or so years ago. still missing the plastic knob on the bolt. Ive litteraly fired hundreds of thousands of rounds through it kill everything from frogs, bugs birds yotes pets and a few deer and everything inbetween.
That gun has some memories

I expect that most of us learned to shoot with a rimfire.
Dad had a Sears Ted Williams (Winchester IIRC) that was the teaching tool.
Out behind the house shooting cans off the fence posts.

I have 3 of these 1" Montana Slings on lever guns. One Chicago screw type and 2 of the sewn type. They have a leather slip knot that adjusts easy and doesn't slip. They are awesome and with the swivel mounts are less than $40. I'll probably order another for a Ruger 9mm rifle.

Nice! Thank you! I googled like crazy last week looking for a nice leather sling. Saw a couple on amazon but there were mixed reviews.

Thank you!

Shoot whatever then it's .22 time :cool:. Must have item. Been that way as long as I can remember on every outing. Ruger, Mossberg, Savage, Henry, Winchester, no matter. They get shot every time. More the better.

Sig makes the mosquito. Everything on it is just like the rest of Sigs line up. So if you carried a large frame it would come in handy to be able to practice with 22.

Every new shooter I've ever worked with I've started on a .22. Some of you may remember the thread on the old site. SIL had a DA moment starting #1 granddaughter on a .243 or .308 (forget which) for her junior elk hunt. And of course got the expected results. I fixed that problem real quick. Time on a .22 to learn the basics the right way and when she was ready, moved her up to the next level. Now, she and #2 granddaughter share my M4. I may not ever see it again.

he did this from the time I was around 8-10 till he passed away.

Guess I'm not the only one who loves the pump .22 gallery guns. Since I retired I searched out and bought 6 of the Winchester 1890s in .22WRF and .22short. Fun as hell! Gave one to my grandson on his 18 birthday. He was crazy happy. So there is hope for the youth.

That Ruger international stock 1022 is so cool. I still have my original 1022 Deluxe carbine i bought when i was 17 at Gibsons Dept Store in SLC Utah. Since then so many more .22's in the stable. My favorite is still a browning BL-22 Lever gun a friend in need was selling back in the day. Recently added a Taurus TX-22 to the mix, have not shot it yet hope too soon.

I bought a Nylon 66 a long time ago for 25 bucks because "the piece of sh*t jams and won't work."

You could feel the grit when you tried to rack the bolt.
Took just a bit of WD-40 to hose out all the filth and it worked like a charm. I did OK when I sold it.

just something about shooting a 22, damm fun, regardless of age, especially with a shooter that has no issues, i probably put more food in the pot with a 22 than any other shooter, guess thats why i have so many, hehehe, and probably a whole lot more, two of my granddaughters enjoyed shooting them when here last, guess i know where some of them will go.

Honestly, I have more .22's than I know about, easily 25-30 (or more) in all kinds of setups.

I went through a spell of buying cheap .22 wheel guns, probably have atleast 10 of them, and about the same for 10/22's, including my first gun ever, which is a 10/22 from the late 70's.

I built the kids their own 10/22's with custom stocks, etc but they are not too interested in them, so they sit in the safe.

My first can was a .22 can from D, which is mated to a .22 Mossberg bolt gun that Joey refinished for me. It is amazing how much fun a suppressed bolt .22 is, we have shot it in my back yard (a long time ago) and the neighbors didn't have a clue.

They sure can become an addiction....
