    I have a variety of .22 handguns as well. Some are very well made and quite accurate and some... well, I guess I just wanted them.

    This Single-Ten is the family favorite of our .22LR handguns.
    Other .22LR guns include: LCR, LCRX 3", SR-22.

    A co-worker of mine showed me one of those the other day, but chambered in .320? Some sort of Brazilian non-military round?

    I'd never seen or heard of one before. It's an interesting little SxS pocket pistol. :)

    I really don’t know much about it and this is the only one that I have ever seen. It was thrown in to “sweeten” the deal on another revolver that I bought.

    A quick internet search...

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Garrucha_(pistol)

    I am guessing that my Rossi was made in the ‘50s or ‘60s but I have nothing to base that on except that it was marketed by Firearms International Corp, a firearms importer during that time.

    It actually isn’t a bad little gun. Not very accurate but I wouldn’t stand in front of it at any distance.

    That's a very nice example. My coworker's gun is loose and wallowed out. It probably wasn't meant to fire a lot of .320 ammo.

    Sure thing. They all play a different role in our range rotation and compliment each other well.

    The Single-Ten is by far the most accurate at 5.5 inches and 36 oz., combined with the superb fiber optic sights make it easy to keep/hold the target. This is our target shooting gun.

    The wife and I each have our own LCR. When we practice it's generally shooting 3-5-7 yards unsighted and focusing on the target. Combat accuracy is very good for both of us and neither one of us finds the trigger oppressive like some folks report. Both have Hogue G10 grips. These are for defensive revolver shooting practice.

    The 3" LCRX is surprisingly accurate. With this one we use the sights and it has surprisingly good accuracy at 5-7-10 yards. Has rear adjustable sights vs. the U-notch rear sights on the LCR. Trigger similar to our other LCR. It also has Hogue G10 grips. Not a target gun but challenging/fun to shoot it that way. Really forces you to learn DAO trigger control

    While the SR-22 isn't as accurate as a Mark series pistol, its no slouch in the 7-10-15 yards we shoot it at. Better accuracy than what some folks report, or should I say better than expected. We all seem to see the stock white sights just fine. Just a flat out fun gun. It's our only Semi-Auto so its really a fun range gun for us.

    20151018_145403.jpg 20170105_152403.jpg Here are my two favorites. The Single Six (with a nice Herrett handful) was my top .22 for several years. Sadly , it doesn't get out too much since the S&W 17 came along.

    I just realized that all of my .22 LR pistols are Rugers. In chronological order of manufacture:

    Ruger Standard Model 4"
    Ruger Single-Six convertible stainless 5.5"
    Ruger Bearcat 4"
    Ruger MkIV 22/45 Lite 4"

    There is also a NAA .22 magnum with 1 1/8" barrel.

    Two single six convertibtles, two NAA 22 mags one browning 1911 22 they are all fun to shoot and worthy of a good hike..... the NAA's have proved them selfs for other duty as while and are more accurate then they should be.

    I don't have any "safe queen" .22 caliber pistols. All are shot on a semi-regular basis. Here is a MK512 "Slab-Side" that now has a 'steel' trigger and complete action job, and an in-house machined optics base for an Ultra-Dot optic. Makes for a great indoor bullseye pistol:

    I now have a Volquartsen LLV that recently arrived. I just need to see for meself how these pistols perform. Right now it's just too dang cold outside to set up my Ransom Rest for any testing. I don't care for the bolt with the long 'door-knob" thingy on the back end of it, so I installed an extra Ruger Mark II bolt instead:

    Just got the High Standard out of layaway, and snapped a pic of the Buck Mark. The Sport King has finish wear at the muzzle and sharp edges, but seems to be in good mechanical shape. Hope it shoots as good as it looks.

    The Browning was missing the front sight and had a bit of cosmetic damage when I got it, which allowed me to pick it up for a very reasonable price. Replaced the front sight and cleaned it up a bit, it shot very well when I took it to the range. One of these days I will replace the rear sight and bridge as well.

    I recently purchased the full sized SR22, I like it better than the compact version. Just fits my hand better!

    I believe Ruger is the reigning king of .22lr. Look at all the different platforms and customizations available for each platform. I own 4 myself. A 4” standard, a 6” MK I, the 93 target 22/45, and a LCR 3”.

    Excellent point! The Standard and Mark versions, starting next year, 2019 for 70 YEARS! It will be interesting to see what sort of .22 commemoration pistol they come up with.
