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