I guess that depends.. What do you want Winds? A lever or semi?

Im not a big 10/22 fan, there just a "ok" .22 unless you want to modify them...

Heres a 39A "broken down"... (in case you still dont know what we are talking about..)

A knowledgeable friend pointed me towards a Henry Lever Repeater. I liked it. I have shot my Dad's Marlin bolt action. It was too big for me and a bit heavy and I found the bolt kind of awkward to work.

No problem. Like I said, unless you are doing competition, or just want to put a full 550 rd box of .22 through 1 hole (), you'll be fine with whatever you pick. (unless it is just a bad rifle. A Henry is not) Generally, Ruger, Marlin, CZ, and Henry all make really good .22s. I also like the older Remington pump .22, they are a lot of fun.

lol, I think I fell in love last night. I found this Ruger Mark III with a 6" barrel, and that is one sexy gun (so is your Mark II ). The auction is pretty much over, and I am saving my money for an AR, but I will definitely have to get one some day. I love that tapered barrel.

Do you like your Henry? I'm picking up one with the octogan barrel when I get home, buying for my dad's birthday.

Well, this friend said after I get the Henry Lever I'll probably want to get a Ruger10\22 semi because everyone needs to have one. Geeze, I like how people spend my money for me.

I just want a .22 rifle to give my Mark II a little competition when shooting holes in targets, blasting clay pigeons sitting on the ground, putting gallon containers of water in hypovolemic shock and maybe killing a few balloons, pumpkins, watermelons and the like.

lol, I don't need people to spend my money for me, I do that well enough by myself.

The Henry would be a good gun for that. I don't know anything about it's accuracy, but IIRC, it's pretty good.

Sometimes the gun market is dry. Sometimes, it floods. Last Friday, won auction for a Mossberg 44US training rifle for MUCH less than I would expect to pay (because the dealer could not spell MOSSBERG in his title). OK, waiting on the UPS guy for that one. Stopped in LGS this morning- Marlin 81 DL with a 1950s scope- little dusty, rifle needs cleaning- buttplate is chipped, small ding out of toe of stock- $60 cash. (have a spare stock and buttplate in workshop for a Marlin 81DL) Went to lunch to say aloha to an old friend who is also retiring, and leaving Friday to live in Florida. He asked if I would be interested in a couple of single shot 22s he did not want o take to Florida. Remington bolt action, and an Ithaca lever action. $100 for the pair.

CRAP! I need another safe!

Ok, your really going to have to show me how you find deals like that. Are you just naturally lucky, or is there something to it?

I think SOME PEOPLE cruise the U-haul rental yards and the obituaries for deals.

Yeah, C3 seems to find all the good deals.

But I wonder why he posted this in the Random Questions Thread? Maybe his eyesight isn't as good as his luck. ROFL
