    I've posted this pic before, elsewhere...

    My .22 rimfire handguns are all over the map, in terms of configurations and preferences... :)

    If I were to keep ONE out of that bunch, I suppose it would be the old square-butt, 6-shot Model 63 kit gun (the one with the wooden grips and Patridge sight)... But I'd be hard-pressed to lose an adoptee, and am always looking to adopt another... :D

    aye yi yi!
    I had a tph - sadly, it was a jammomatic! And I bought it new. Sent it in for work and it came back the same. Very sad as I think they are beautiful. I actually had an old jennings 1970's or 60's I think. I still remembe the blue box and wood grip - that thing actually shot straight and rarely (if ever jammed). Go figure. Soooooo, my next question, what was your VERY FIRST .22 HANDGUN? Mine was an H&R model 949 '49er. (Long, long gone) images.jpg

    Oh, I've got plenty of other guns. Just the one 22lr though.

    I divested all my 22's which were mostly cheap back when 22 became non existent because I figured I'd dump them now and replace with nicer stuff when the market normalizes. Thank goodness I reload the bulk of my ammo.

    George -- in my case, that would be the 63 kit gun... I bought it used from a friend back in 1980 -- and it's still as tight and reliable as the day HE bought it. :D

    Nice, nice nice; I use to have a Rossi 5 shot 38spl in stainless. Wish I kept it - it worked perfectly and shot straight.

    The only thing I've found that works is to never use the forum software to choose a smaller size image. if you select "actual size" it usually leaves the images the proper orientation. If you select a smaller size it flips them or rotates them. For me.

    image.jpeg I only have one 22 handgun right now. It's a Ruger MK IV 22/45 with the 5 1/2" barrel. I purchased 4 extra mags so I shoot 60 rounds almost every day through this fun and accurate pistol. When all this covid 19 craziness is over I plan on buying a revolver or 2 in 22.

    That's a fine piece that will serve you well in these uncertain times.

    You can't go wrong with ruger.

    And the 45 angle is excellent.

    Congrats!

I guess my favorite to shoot is the Ruger SR22.

    Sorry about the inverted pictures. This is my first attempt to post pictures on this website. I will endeavor to do better next time.

    I've had this one for well over 2 decades, and with the Leupold 2x LER scope it's a tack driver. One of the things I like best about this Buckmark is that it shoots Stingers as accurately as any other ammo, ten shots under an inch at 25 yards. What a Stinger does to a large red squirrel has to be seen to be believed! :D
