well, I just finished a buying binge on .22 lr hand guns. I bought a Ruger LCR, a Ruger SR-22, and a Taurus Tracker with a 6.5 inch barrel. My reasoning was that the LCR with ratshot would handle all my snake problems. The Taurus was for over 25 yard shooting. The SR-22 jus felt so good in my hand. After wringing them out a little my favorite of the day is the SR-22. It is the most accurate small pistol that I have ever had. It is light and I love the double-single action trigger. I dont know what came over me unless it was a good old senior moment. Have a goodun!!!!
