I have more fun with mt 22's than anything else. There's just no better bang for the buck. I have a few rifles and a couple pistols. I really need a good revolver though. It just seems like there's a hole in my 22 collection until I fill that need. Anyway, there's a ton of pretty neat ones and all kinds of ways to make them uniquely yours.

The latest acquire was an old Remington 121 Fieldmaster. Man that thing is a blast (pun intended) to shoot.

I started out shooting with a old Stevens tube fed, bolt action 22 over 60 years ago that belonged to my father. I still have the old girl and have used it to start my children and grandchildren with it. It holds a place of honer in my cabinet along with 12 other 22s I have collected over the years. I still regularly shoot the H & R 22 revolver I bought when I was 13. To my way of looking at things owning and shooting a 22 is almost mandatory for any gun enthusiast and don't know any of the people I hunt and shoot who doesn't own at least one. I know that things have changed a lot since I was young but back then having a 22 was part of growing up for any young man. Being from the old school a 22 is my standard gift for any of my grandsons for their 10th birthday. I have also given more than one to some of my granddaughters. There is a new Henry Golden Boy in the closet for my oldest great-grandson when he turns 10 in June. He has been shooting the old Stevens for over a year now so he is ready for one of his own.

I have three .22's, a remington 597, marlin model 60, and a browning buckmark.
I'm looking to get a lever action .22 and a bersa .22 in the future.

My next gun purchase will be a .22.

Default First .22

I started out with a Mossberg bolt action with a 7 shot detachable magazine chambered for S-L & LR. I traded it for a Ruger 10/22 when I turned 18...have since regretted trading it. I love the 11/22, but really miss the ability to use S-L or LR. I was able to pick up tube fed Mossberg bolt action that'll hold 20 LR's! I haven't ever filled it all the way with shorts, but have had 35 in it and still had room.

I just got my 15 y/o son a Savage .22 LR bolt action....he'd wanted a bolt gun since he was 12, but I couldn't find 1 I liked, yet another reason I wish I had kept that 1st Mossberg.

Wow, that's awfully close to my .22 collection. I have a Rem Nylon 66, Marlin Glenfield m0del 60, and just picked up a Henry lever last year. The all are a blast to shoot. The Henry has the nicest trigger of any of them, I was surprised.

My collection of 22's is eclectic, but each has its purpose.

Calico M-100 Carbine with 3 100-round mags.
Calico M-110 Pistol with 2 100-rd mags (interchangable with above, too)

1939 High Standard model B pistol
1990 Grendel P-30 (30-rds per mag)
1990 Grendel R-31 (30-rds per mag

1913 Marlin 37 Slide-action rifle
1960 Marlin 989-M2 w/12-rd mags (brother of the 70HC)
1960 Marlin 99-G w/ 18-rd tube mag (brother of the Marlin 60)
1990 Marlin 60 w/18-rd tube mag & LSHO
1963 Marlin 56 Levermatic (Sears 46C)
1994 Marlin 25MN Bolt-action (.22WMR)

Default Love my 22's

I have just gotten back into shooting 22's in recent months. Being semi retired I have been going to the range mid week and target shooting. I have an old Mossberg 402 lever action that belonged to my dad. I had a Marlin 39A that was stolen years ago. That was a sweet rifle. I now have a Browning T-Bolt and just ordered the Weatherby Mark XII. OK so I blew my tax refund, but it is beautiful.

I started off with a single shot bolt action Gecado "Plinker" on which I practised and learned the fine arts of re-blueing the metal and devarnishing, steaming, smoothing and oiling the stock - as well as practising my shooting.

I wish I still had it, actually, just for sentimental purposes and for my kids to learn on.

I've had a number of other .22s over the years, including an Anshutz semi auto, and my current .22 is my second CZ 452-2E ZKM (after the first one got stolen).

I've stripped and oiled the stock, lightened the trigger pull and fitted it with a 3-9x40W scope. I've also got a spare bolt and 5-round mag (from my first CZ) and a 10-round mag. The suppressor I've got is only basic but with subsonic rounds it's nice and quiet, does not spook other game (or any domestic/farm animals that may be nearby).

The only other thing I really need for it is a Tactical light and mount so I can spotlight rabbits and possums.

I classify as my primary firearm. It gets more use than my SKS and Mossberg 500 combined.
