    They Say Everyone Should Have at Least One

    At least one of what you ask? A gun that fires the 22 Long Rifle cartridge of course. I was going over my small collection of guns which consists of 13 handguns and 8 long guns when I realized that one third of them are in 22 caliber. The 22 caliber cartridge is one of the oldest rounds still in common usage and is likely manufactured in a higher quantity than any other for civilian usage. My 22 rimfire hand guns include a Browning Buckmark, Ruger SR22, H&R 649 and S&W 617. In long guns I have a Henry H001 a S&W 15-22 and a Winchester model 275 which is 22 magnum. I cant find a picture of the SR22 right now, but here are mine. What 22 rimfires do you all have?

    I shoot more .22's than all other calibers combined. A good .22 will accomplish 99% of my shooting needs (pest control, small game hunting, plinking), in fact everything except self-defense & big game hunting. I would have to spend the morning taking pictures but I have: S&W 63-5, 34-1, 317; Browning Challenger; Ruger MKII, MKIV, Savage, 72, Stevens #14, Remington Rolling block & probably couple that slipped my mind.

    Tiny caliber even good enough for self-defence except that a centre-fire cartridge is more reliable. Lots of fun to shoot, though, precisely because ammo is quite affordable.

    I had to sell my Henry H001 and Heritage Revolver and kept the 10/22. I installed a Primary Scope couple months ago but I may take it off, it's more fun plinking with Iron sights
