Because some, like myself, are just getting started, perhaps??? That has to account for a large percentage, because I can tell you I'm hooked and will not be stopping at my 10/22.

It's sad that people like you think that way! Maybe some people just like shooting them, or are just getting into shooting. Who cares what people shoot, as long as more people start shooting! Grow up! And yes I have .22's, and I still shoot them! Give me a break!

Because the range in my village is only 100 yards.

Because you can practice a lot of the fundamentals for not a lot of $$ and without the fatigue a .308 would give you.

Because .22LRs get pushed around by the wind a lot more and you can put a few .22LRs in the hole made by just one round of the a larger calibers, thus the challenge of marksmanship is higher and cheaper.

A brick of 22LR for 20 bucks and shoot for a while at the range is a great inexpensive day.

As mentioned, .22LR is cheap, fun, and good practice...reminds me of this chick in Memphis. :D

Also, .22LR practice is a bit quieter for more populated areas and is more kid-friendly for initiating the offspring. Additionally, for smaller game hunting, it doesn't tear up the meat as much (tree rats & such).

Nobody asks the big-bore addicts if they really just enjoy a good "pounding".

So I guess you gotta shoot big bore to be a bad azz now a days :D I believe they all punch holes in paper so why not do it cheaper ? I shoot .22lr thru my 5.56 AR and I can shoot 500 rds for $14 lets see ya do that with a big bore ;)

Pffft! Any bachelor worth his salt knows those flour tortillas are just quicky dumplins waiting to happen.
