    My sentiments exactly!

    Every new shooter I have taken to the range has been started off with a .22 of their choice (revolver, semi-auto, or rifle). Once they got the basic down then it was on to a centerfire handgun, typically a full size 9mm. or else a S&W K frame .38 Special. For some it took several range visits; others did it all in their first visit.

    For my part - the DW is the treat in that stable.:thumbup:

    Best for last.... and all that.

    A waaaaaay underpriced plinker from an auction that I mostly bought being intrigued by the grips.

    Having shot it - it's a keeper. Cost less than a box of .22!:evil:

    Iver Johnson Target Model 55. I guess the *Target* is in the generous - if non-adjustable - front sight and the thumb-rest grip.

    As to the grip. It's (single piece:thumbup:) fairly fat, nicely flared and the thumb rest is one of the most sensible that I've ever felt.

    Sights - such as they are - are dead on with a handful of cast-off .22 that I shot through it. Shot-shell spread is nice and very confidence inspiring with Federal full-length and crimped shot shells.

    The loading gate on the side sure beats having to remove the cylinder as on my H&R 623. H&Rs have a similar looking cut but they are deliberately undersized to disallow a case passing through.

    Ultimately, since the metal is in such excellent condition, she'll be in the re-blue rotation eventually.

    Gotta miss the days when a manufacturer was really proud of their markings and sunk 'em in to last.

    What a deal.... I've spent more on pizza in the past.

    .............. My thoughts exactly. Love those Ruger Single Sixes. Here's my woods gun out swapping SD cards on trail cams last fall and simultaneously doing a little handgun squirrel hunting. This picture shows the 22LR cylinder in it although the 22 Mag. cylinder gets a lot of use also. These things are habit forming... IMG_0184.JPG

    Neat gun, but the grips are for the wrong hand.

    Found some MKII/III target grips at the LGS and since I always wanted these grips on my MKII I put them on.

    Earlier this year I dropped into the LGS to chew the fat with the owner and he had this laying on the counter although it looked much worse then than it does now. He said he got it in a estate sale and was fixing to clean it up. I popped off and asked what he would take for it as is. He made me a nice price so it came home with me. I planned to reblue it at first but after cleaning, removing a bit of rust, and repairing the cracked grip I decided it should remain the old gun that it is. It's decently accurate and has a nice trigger.

    Nice! I had a Target 8 similiar to that, but without the loading gate. It was a fun gun, though tedious to eject with a chopstick, lol.

    I took a 1/8" spare allen wrench and ground the long end into a round end to prevent scratches. Then I knurled a 1" or so long piece of 3/8" aluminum rod, drilled it to slip on the short end, epoxied it in place and presto, a case remover. The only drawback is remembering to slip it in my pocket when shooting this gun.

    I'm sorta "hooked on .22 guns":

    When time allows, I make grips from blanks.
