First off - I said I shot my ".22LR" 175 yards often. It's easy. If you don't know that you just haven't tried it. And I know the guy who shot those 500 yard targets. I have shot targets at 375 yards with a .22 so I have little doubt that 500 yards can be done. I'm sorry you don't believe that. It really is your loss.

But please continue to flame me and prove that you don't know shooting. And I'll go back to ignoring you. I really do feel sorry for you. If you asked me nicely I would have made my own video of me shooting to prove to you that you're wrong but instead you just tried to flame me. Did it work? I haven't posted in this thread for 2 months so you figure it out.

If you have really been shooting 60 years and you can't shoot 175 yards you just haven't tried friend. I'm serious. The drop for the CCI SV I often use, which is sub-sonic ammo, is about 18 inches which means I can see the aim point and the target in my scope at the same time.

Have I been shooting a long time? You bet but apparently some of you have too. Why you don't know what a .22 will do is beyond me. You don't believe in yourself or anyone else. That's probably the biggest reason "can't" wins in your life. If you think "can't" then you "won't". It's that simple.

Give it a try some day. Ask one of 100 people on this board that show up every day. There will be more than that. You're wrong friends. You really are. I don't want to show you up. I don't want to insult you. You guys should get out of jr. high attitudes. That's not an insult. It's solid advice for you. You don't read what's said. You add your own facts to what is said. I just don't get you. You work so hard to keep others down that if you used that energy to lift yourself up you'd be a great shooter. Just try it. You might learn something. I won't be back here to flame with you. That's not my idea of fun. You can do what you want. But it's really sad friends. It really is.

I had heard that Jeff56 fired a 22cal bullet around the world and hit himself in the back of the head.........This is sad as he was destined to be the best 22 shooter on earth.

A funny thing happened on the way to this posting. I spent (wasted) about 20 min. quickly scanning every post in this thread. Only once was Heritage Arms mentioned, and it was not mentioned as a manufacturer to avoid. The poster was satisfied with his/her revolver.

Many vaunted names, too numerous to mention, were included in the "to avoid" category, including most of my personal fav's.

Recently, I bought a H.A. "Birdshead" 22lr./22mag. revolver, after watching many videos on Youtube, and seeing almost universal satisfacion with the guns. This little 6 shooter is to partner with my old Savage P-24, .22 mag over 20 ga. small game gun.

Not long ago, someone in a forum here mentioned Heritage Arms, and the haters kicked in to high gear with all of the crap they'd heard about H.A. firearms.

Let's here some real-life honest to goodness, 1st person experiences with H.A. gear.

I would agree with the avoidance of anything related to Bryco arms, Jennings, Phoenix, Jimenez, and any other name that they have operated under over the years.

However I don't see why people are giving the Walther P22 a bad rap. I've had one over 8 years and it has thousands upon thousands of rounds through it without ever having a replacement part. It does tend to get a bit finicky after about 250-300 rounds, but mine is old and well worn so it's not suprising to me. I take it home, clean it, and it then again is ready to fire away. I've even done just a quick wipe down at the range and it's solved any buildup related firing issues. It's not as realiable as a glock, but I find it to be a dam fine weapons.

I've got the Heritage 22 / 22mag. Birdshead. I've had it for abougt 10 years. Shoots well, but the factory sights needed a bit of "tweeking" I've heard that some had to file the front sight down a bit, but I did not. I wish it had a longer barrel, but I have had absolutely no problems with it. It was a gift for my wife because of it's "old west" look and we both like it a lot.

I too received one of these from my wife, my sights were dead on right out of the box, and its a blast to shoot, and I've never had a problem in the countless rounds I've put through it!

P22s are crap if you use the wrong ammo. There are 3 in my family and we have NEVER had a FTF in thousands of rounds. We use Remington Thunderbolts for range shooting and keep CCI Stingers in for carry. Never had a problem with any of them; 2 purchased new and 1 used. Can't base your opinion on just one use and not doing some research on the gun before said use!
