    I was going to buy a Ruger 22/45 Hunter today. The gun shop had a Kimber target rimfire next to the ruger. I am tempted to lay out the $200 more for the Kimber. Any thoughts?

    I have shot two different Kimber 22lrs. I don't like either one. Having said that, I do own a Kimber 22lr conversion that is great.

    The full Kimber 22lr is - all - aluminum and is far too light. It feels like you are shooting a cap gun. If you put the conversion on a steel frame, you have a gun that is a ball to shoot.

    I love kimbers EXCEPT for the full 22LRs.
