Fast Frank: Glad you are at least seeing some ammo down your way. It's a rare occurrence around here. Looks like the new normal is for 22lr to be at least $0.05 (Bulk)/round and $0.08/round for CCI or better. Match ammo used to cost me the ridiculous sum of $0.06 / round!

Kind of like $4/gal gas. You adjust but you drive (shoot) less.

The Aguila ammo is very good in my experience. The 40 grain SubSonic (NOT the SSS / Sniper Supsonic 60gr) used to be a real bargain - $13/brick and would shoot almost as well as the $30/brick match ammo. I think the last Aquila Subsonic ammo I saw in a store was well north of $80 a brick.

I'm well into my last bricks of the Subsonic and Match 22lr ammo. I doubt I'll buy more. The Bulk ammo shoots pretty well in my 22's though my target scores are a little lower... The Grouse don't know the difference though...

Thanks for the 22/45 advice. Great little pistols.

Back on topic... I sold my Marlin 1897 Cowboy. Just wasn't getting a lot of use. I'll miss it but in this economy it's hard to have multiples of rifles. The 39CL will now be my full time silhouette match gun and be with me when I'm Grouse Hunting.

I will miss the 1897 Cowboy in the 200 meter long range rimfire matches though...

Packed around nicely for a 24" barreled rifle.

Nice pics, Mo.

Why does it always look like you are having so much FUN?


Still haven't tried the .22 longs.

One of the many things I learned from my Grandparents was that we only have so many heartbeats in us. Now that I've probably used more than I have left I do my best to spend them on things that I enjoy with folks I like. Days in the woods with my 39 count as heartbeats well spent.

Kinda like JustsayMo

I know where JustsayMo is coming from when he says he's going to sell some of his .22s. I took my 1980 model 39as and a little Remington 12A (made in March, 1936) to the LGS and placed them on consignment. I really like both guns, but have a few too many (to this ol' boy's thinking). I've got 9 rifles and 2 revolvers of .22 caliber + several other guns. I'm not getting around as well as I used to and I'm being 'used' too much by other family members. lol It seems that I just can't get the time to go out to shoot. And, then, as JustsayMo stated, the ammo is getting expensive; but mainly it's hard to find. I find some at the local Walmart occasionally, but am allowed only 2 or 3 boxes. When I go out to shoot, I like to burn at least a couple of hundred rounds. I'm not going to get lower than several hundred on hand!
Yes, JustsayMo, every I see you, looks like you're having an awful lot of fun!! Hope it lasts a long, long time.
Love Idaho, miss Texas.
Love guns, hate violence.
