I do agree with what you're saying though, and if I ever have kids, I'm going to start them on .22s as soon as possible.
Not only do I agree with both of you, but when I have kids, I will be keeping them away from those stupid video games as much as possible.

Check out Savage. They seem to have cornered the market on LH rifles. Use the gun finder to check off your specs. and narrow it down. I'm also a Lefty, but as it turns out, I like to shoot RH bolt actions better.

Grandpa started me with 22s as well. A Winchester rifle and Ruger revolver. Many fond memories.
I own a Marlin model 60, Ruger single six and Walther P22. I shoot them often and enjoy it very much.

There we go, golf balls. I cannot speak for anyone else, but my friends and I have shot some really silly targets with .22lr

What is the strangest, or most off the wall target you have laid your sights on with a .22?

My friends and I used to "chop" down 4" trees in the way at my back hard range. I grew up on some kind of single shot bolt 22 until I was gifted a Remington Nylon semi auto in my teen years.
When I was 16, my brother returned from a deployment in the navy and we were plinking at my grandparents back yard. He had a Marlin tube fed semi auto. He walked down range about 50 yards and put a quarter in the ground and dared me to shoot it. He offered me his Marlin if I hit it. The dang thing was barely a glint through the iron sights but I squeezed off a round from his rifle and the glint disappeared. We ran out and found the quarter buried in the ground about a foot past where it was originally at. The bullet pierced it and deformed it heavily. I didn't take his gun, it was a very lucky shot.

I have a Ruger Mark II that has a scope on it. It is my favorite gun to shoot, scope on or scope off. It makes me happy to shoot that thing.

Maybe its what you start off with...

My first was a SKS, and ive had the mil-surp bug ever since.. Im young, I dont have any "tacicool" guns... All my friends even make fun of my "relics" (Except the '03 )

I guess my love is for the 7.62.... .22's just burn time while im waiting on my barrel to cool


Hey.. maybe I should try to find one of those "1903" training .22's, Is there a M1 trainer .22?

I think even if I was a millionaire Id probably shoot .22 the most I just love the round . Dont beat ya up after putting 500 rds through it. You don't have to wear hearing protection. Doesn't destroy targets after 10 rds .

You can just sit there in a nice folding chair and make coke cans hop around your property all day long .

22s are awesome, there cheap to shoot, and can be quite accurate. Sure I like shooting big guns, but I can't afford to shoot 300wm all day long. I know a ton of people that act like a 22 is for babies.
