    I only have one .22 wheel-gun at the moment, though I do have other .22s :). I will certainly be buying a few more .22 handguns in the future as it is such a fun caliber! I really lucked out when I purchased my .22 revolver too, as I was attending a gun-show for the sole purpose of hopefully finding a .45lc SAA-clone, and was delighted to find one with exactly the finish and grips I had hoped for... with a twin brother in .22 to boot! This was ages ago and finding that brace o' pistols really made my day and my whole summer! It is a J.P. Sauer & Sohn / Hawes, and this single-action .22 is far more accurate than I had even hoped. Ages ago, with much less shooting experience than I have now, I once hit a spray-paint can with it from across a ravine from a distance just under 300 feet. Took me two shots, I saw where the first shot landed, and nailed it with the second. I had witnesses too! I absolutely love this gun, and will never part with it :)

    Can anyone tell me if I can shoot .22shorts out of it? I don't even have any, but am curious if that would be any different on the forcing cone than .22lr. (Yes there is a .22 short round in the photo, but it's an old photo and it wasn't mine, I borrowed it from a friend I was with just for the photo, as it just looks so cute and tiny compared to that .45 torpedo)

    welp, that's enough rambling outta me, here's the photo the .22 is on the right, slightly different shape to the cylinder and fluting, it has a noticeably different front-sight as well, compared to its big brother is on the left. The day I bought 'em I named 'em "Kablam" and "Patooey" :D

    (please excuse the flash, as i took this photo the day I bought them, years ago, and had little experience with gun photography at that point)

    here's another shot of it, that I just cropped from a bigger photo of all of my .22s, you may notice the extractor was removed when this photo was taken, i had an issue with it that required a little TLC.

    I have more .22 long guns than hand, but here is my 1973 H&R Sportsman 999 that my father gave me +25 years ago.

    DA is a bit tough, but very accurate.

    Hard to make a choice. I love my Ruger MkII, and MkIII semis, and I also have a fun-shooting Single Six made in 1973. But these are my two favorites:

    At one time I had a dozen or so 22 revolvers, but I've whittled the accumulation down to only two at this time.

    Smith & Wesson 17-3 from 1971.

    I have a few. Unfortunately, all my pics or of single actions. Don't have any of my 4" or 6" K-22's.

    Old Model Single Six, retrofitted with an XR3 grip frame, steel ejector housing, bullseye ejector and fancy claro walnut.

    Hopefully I can sell my .22 rifle and find a .22 handgun at the gun show next weekend.

    I've got more'n one auto, but just two revolvers in .22LR. The little Rossi kit gun sees a LOT of range use/plinking. The NAA is a daily carry back up. These are 3 .22 NAAs, one is a magnum, one is Black Powder, a front stuffer. They're all .22 caliber, but just one is a .22LR.

    This is my 3rd or 4th favorite, a 4" 17-6. I really need to charge up the camera and take pics of the others.
