Why a .22? Why not? Cheap ammunition + lots of practice = tighter groups. Also, the multitude of .22 accessories and platforms being offered nowadays can be closely matched with your preferred larger caliber firearm. This makes all that extra range time worth more than all the money you will save in the long run.

Dbl action revolver practice.....oh yeah,and a 541 Rem for offhand rifle practice.

And practice works!A month or so ago we were at the range and I was shooting a nice older Savage 22-250.Just finished stocking it.......anyway,because I'd been practicing so much offhand work with the Rem 22,I shot the best off-hand group(hunting rifle)to date.Bunch of friends were there and they just started shaking their heads......but it was all about the .22 practice.Intheshop

And to really start an argument set down next to the run of the mil high power rifle shooter with your better than avaerage .22lr and shoot groups at 100 yards tighter than his deer rifle. Thats allways good for a, how the h*ll did you do that.

.22's are just great for getting out early by your self an plinking away at the range with no crasy people around. Great way to calm your mind and enjoy a new morning.

Answer this question...Why should I/anyone own a 22lr?

@TooStrongTerry
1.-Cheap, good quality ammo.

2.-Versatility- varmints, target, as well as a good

family and beginner's caliber.

3.-A common, small caliber which is inexpensive to find in

quality brands in rifle, range pistol, and EDC types.

4.-A perfect platform caliber for training. Many use a .22 which is

the same design as their larger caliber for practice, at a fraction

of the larger caliber cost.

5.-Lightweight, easy to load, easy to use, easy to clean.



That's the short list, but you can do what you want, and spend

or mis-spend as you please. Not a lot of time to argue...

On a personal note, I really like my Henry 22, also. Lots of fun for all.

Plinking with a .22 is therapy and if your shooting with a kid they can shoot all day for pennies and not have to spend a day or two at the reloading bench.
