Default RUGER p89

I bought a Ruger P89 in 9 mm last year for $250. It came from Montana ( I live in Maine). It was filthy and I took my time cleaning it and with it's 15+1 capacity it's formidable. It's also a tack driver and I have not had any issues with it. The only downside is it's weight and size, not a great carry gun but if I was still on the force I would use for my duty weapon without hesitation.

Any one consider a Marlin 39A? They are pricey now,thanks to Remlin not producing them after the Marlin purchase years ago. I have a mid '80s model and it feels and performs like an adults firearm,not a youths gun like other brands(not wanting to hurt feelings by calling brand names). I do own a Nylon 66 Apache Black, Mohawk Brown 10C(clip version),5 different 10/22s,and a Model 60. They are all good shooters,some for plinking and others for target.They all perform different with a change in ammo also.Each has its own personality and they are all fine firearms.

Welcome!

The 39a is a heavy, well made rifle. Wish I still owned one.

Just to drive home my point, this is my unaltered 10/22 takedown range session yesterday. On the left is warmup @ 15 yards, 50 rounds. All shooting in this session except the last 25 rounds is from an unsupported stance. The target on the right is at 25 yards, 100 rounds. The last 25 shots were bench supported as fast as I could pull the trigger. I assume that explains the spray around center.

Just got a STG 44 -22LR. I now have a favorite plinker. Ran 250 rounds through it today and what a hoot.

My absolute favorite .22 rifle is my 10/22. I also have a Marlin Model 60 that's lots of fun to shoot. They're both great guns.

Default Browning ATD .22

Before this thread becomes an ammo thread, the price is twice that of the 10/22 and other inexpensive rifles, but for one you can shoot little bitty groups with and carry with pride for the rest of your life, get the Browning Mdl. 241. Sure it is made in Japan, but the quality and style has not changed from the Belgium made Brownings. I have had mine since 1960 and it is the sweetest handling gun you will ever pick up. And at 25 yards with a 4X scope, I can cut kitchen matches in half, and on a good day light one on purpose. You need the strike anywhere matches for that.

Try it! You will like it !!
