      what caliber is your favorite for targeting, plinking, etc...

      i hope this poll works but this is generally what you like to shoot for fun when you go out to the range. nothing serious like carry, or personal defense, just what caliber you enjoy shooting
      thanks

      I'll shoot target with ALL of the calibers I own. (All but .44 mag on your list) to stay up and in shape with them
      But, due to PRICE the .22LR is first, .22MAG next, 9mm ... then useage goes with cost...

      Lateck,

      Since I have 28 of 'em, I had to say .22 LR ... I reload for .380, 9mm, .357 Mag, and .45 ACP, so I shoot those quiet regularly as well.

      Hands down .22 lr. Next in line would be .45 acp but only because I reload for it.

      I have conversions to 22 for many of my pistols so I use them often.

      Due to expense ..

      I shoot 9 mm much more than other large calibers.

      I enjoy and shoot .22 cal also .. but not as much as 9mm

      I just got a nice new .22LR Browning Buck Mark semi-auto. Much fun with my first .22LR handgun.
      I shoot one of my 9mm's quite a bit. It's my CCW gun, a Sig P290 "pocket nine". It needs and deserves plenty of practice.

      By far the most fun is my "other" gun. A Ruger SuperRedhawk Alaskan ( 2.5" barrel ) "snubby" in .454 Casull.
      It's my wilderness/mountain hiking gun. Yep, GREAT fun "killing" water-filled milk jugs. Except factory ammo is $2 a throw downrange.

      If i got a .22 I could shoot alot more

      But other then plinking .22's have no practical application so I only target shoot with anything <.380
      mostly 9s expensive to shoot .40 and .45 so carelessly
      Unfortunately im going to have to start buying .45 ammo very soon... will be a joy to shoot tho

      My preference, in order, would be 9mm, 38 special, and 22 lr.

      Hands down .22LR. Being the least expensive ammo and the fact that you can buy a nice gun in that caliber for $200-$300 or so there really is nothing else close.

      (plus the fact that you can actually hit what you are aiming for 99% of the time)



      Yes, we are a little biased toward the caliber a bit........




      We send no less than about 40,000 rounds of .22LR down range each year.

      For general fun plinking the 22 rimfire hands down most often used by me it's cheap and fun. I still shoot the center fires just not as much even with reloading. As for target shooting I like 50 foot indoor match bullseye with the 22 rim fire. Aso shoot 3 gun with the 22, center fire(I use a S&W mod. 52 39 spl wad cutter), and 45 acp.

      Gotta be the "lowly" .22lr. Then would probably be 9mm, then it's a wide open field for me after that. It depends on how I'm feeling and what guns come out of the safe!
