    Cool .22 Fun!

    Hey

    Some have asked (and GH has posted) after single shots.......

    Care for a Steven's Crack Shot?

    And everyone needs a couple (or more) Ruger's.......... (even better with mag loaders)

    No .22 thread would be complete.........if a Marlin 39 wasn't in the mix........

    Would be remiss, if "fodder" consumption weren't discussed

    On a typical afternoon of "plinking" FUN!, each shooter (in our bunch) will feed a K 22 about a brick of ammo.

    Using the Steven's (single shot), that takes the consumption down to about 1/2 or 1/3 of a brick.

    Using either the Mk II or 10/22 (with mag loaders), the "eat" about TWO BRICKS! (seems the Ruger .22's are always HUNGRY)!!

    Around here, .22 ammo is still scarce. The 2017 "price" is over $50/brick........(cheaper to shoot .38's, if one reloads. May have to get a couple of .32's.........)

    Later, Mark

    I have had a love affair with .22 automatic pistols ever since I read a story about how those that venture in the north woods consider them a piece of very necessary equipment.

    In the story they quoted legends like Bradford Angier, Mr. Whelen, Jack O'Connor, and others going on long and loud singing the praises of the easy to carry, very reliable, and feeling naked without, the good ol' .22 automatic pistol.

    200 rounds of ammo can be distributed among your gear to not be a burden at all and barely felt.

    Thanks for showing off all your rimfires guys! For a follow up question, How is ammo availability in your area? Around here the Walmart shelves are still mostly bare. I've run into 100rd boxes of Winchester Super X for just under $8 a time or 2 but its spotty. The gun shops on the other hand seem to have a good supply. Probably the most common is the Federal Auto Match. An area shop had it on sale for $14.99 a box (325rd) recently with no limit. Was a bigger shop last month and they had piles of it at a fair price. The Blazer and American Eagle were $24.95 per brick and Federal Champion was $28.99 per brick I believe. They had a lot of CCI also at $39.95 for a carton which was 5 - 100 round boxes. I have only run about 1000 rounds a year for the past 4 or 5 years due to the lack of availability, but was able to find enough to replace what I shot plus build up some. I now have a sizeable stockpile and plan to shoot a lot of 22 ammo this summer. My 3 month old model 617 will be getting a workout!

    Grice is where I saw the bricks of Federal, Blazer & American Eagle for $25.00-30.00, as well as the CC! for $39.95/500. They had a bunch of it!

    Great pictures of some fine .22's guys. I think everyone should have a .22 that mimics there center fire guns. Bolt gun for your center fire rifle, Smith 17 or 18 for your revolvers, A sig 1911-22 for your 1911's etc. I even have an M&P in .22 that makes a good understudy for my 9mm. About 25% of my firearm accumulation is in .22's. Just a few pics
