      Unhappy Piss on big caliber. Give me a .22!

      Well I cant get ammo for anything with big balls so I may just get a .22 so at least I have ammo for it. Its the only thing I can find. HG

      I think everyone should have a 22, I have 3 pistols and 2 rifles.

      I've done some of my own psudo-scientific testing, and can say with 98% confidence that a .22LR has the same one-shot-stopping power as my .357 magnum when hunting paper targets.

      I don't think availability of centerfire ammo is even in the top 10 reasons to own a rimfire.

      Agreed. Everybody needs a 22 and or 22Mag. Pistol/rifle or both. Both work for me.

      A .22 is never a wasted investment. It will probably be shot more than the big bores.

      Yeah, everyone should have at least one. I have two rifles, 10-22 and an AMT that was only made a short while that is exactly like a 10-22 except it has a stainless receiver. I'm using that action to make a target rifle. I just need the barrel now.

      I have a MK III 22/45 and a Buckmark that I just love to shoot as well. I had bought 10 bricks of 22 ammo before the shortage. I like my 45's adn the like but shooting a 22 is just too much fun to not have at least one

      I can't even find cheap 22lr range ammo anymore! I used to always be able to pick up federal bulk packs from Walmart on the way to the range.

      Yeah I'm glad I got some when I did. THe last several times I've been to any store that sells ammo there isn't much out there.

      Cheap is relative. While I don't forsee the $8 box of 500 .22's coming back any time soon, it certainly beats the $20 box of 50 of .380auto.

      Well all I can say I've been shooting a .22 lr S&W 'J' frame revolver rent at the range and it was very pleasant, the feel of a proper revolver the economy of .22 and you can see your holes on target, even if not huge ones.

      If the law where different here I too wouldn't mind to own a .22 revo. Pretty classy, you have those long barreled ones good for accuracy shooting...

      .22's are cool, no way to argue that especially when learning trigger control. I had to sell a few of my guns but I couldn't bring myself to part with my MKII. I put 17 out of 20 rounds inside 1 inch at 40yds from the bench one day. That was better than my Mossberg Plinkster with a 9 power scope.

      2 pistols, 2 revolvers and 8 rifles in .22 LR. If I could only have one gun it would be a .22!

      I carry 642 or 640 (Depends on weather and clothing) and I practice several times a week with my 317 (1 7/8" barrel) in garage bullet trap. At my twice a month visits to the Indoor range, I fire 100 rounds of .22 in the 317 vs 50 rounds of .38 in each of my carry guns. Same frame, same trigger and same sight picture. I fire the .38s mainly to check them for function and recoil recovery practice. the 317 makes the session longer and practical. I practice a lot of my in close one handed shooting with the .22LR. I have burned up 2-300 rounds in a range session with it.

      GOD gave country boys the .22LR to keep them happy!

      A .22 is the first gun a person should acquire and the last one should liquidate.

      Write that down.
