Currently I have 6 22lr's and 1 more on order. I have a number of larger guns also but unlike you I dont need a big gun to make up for a lack of manhood as witnessed by your juvenile post. Go troll on some other forum or man up and apologize to the forum.

LOL! Sorry, my bachelorhood is more solid than the Hoover Dam and is based in the firm belief that my cats are right about me. Besides, nobody in their twenties buys Crisco in a gallon can or has a ceramic cartoon frog in their kitchen, or so they tell me. I haven't been in my twenties for some time now.

Realy?! I've been shooting for 7 yrs now and I am about to go to Trinidad state college in Colorado and I shoot my 10/22 more than anything. I've got bigger guns but I have more fun with my .22.

Well I have more fun with my AR, but its just a big .22!!

I myself own only one 22 and it was my gramps, I still use it for taking crows and what not and even squirrel season still accurate. I like have my 22 for when I'm low on $$ I usually have a couple of bricks and I just go shoot the hell out of it. If I had to get ride of all my guns except my 22 ya I would have a giant problem with it but I would be glad (much much later) that I was able to keep my 22. When I get some more money I'm gonna get me a new one, just don't know what yet.

if you ask me .22s is what makes you a bad ass. I would not do my john mcclane remakes with my big stuff. but i will do the jump and shoot, the double wield, or basically act like a Tetragrammaton Cleric with one of those retarded styled .22 pistols. .22s mix that live round danger, but being able to control it alot better. my .45 makes me a prepared and defensive man, my .22 robocop looking pistol makes me the action star badass that i am. woot!

What caliber are you proposing?

What has caliber to do with one's masculinity, or lack thereof?

Are you one of those who buys a S&W .500 magnum and puts 10 rounds through it and calls it a day of shooting? Then after about 50 rounds, it's up for sale LNIB. But you want full retail, because, it's just that cool, Right? After which, you go around making fun of people shooting .22s.

Liberals are constantly telling us about the poor and oppressed in this country. With that in mind, why do they feel the need to keep importing poor people from other countries?

Well, gee. I can go shoot my .270 for about $20 for a box of fifty rounds, and thoroughly pound my shoulder, or I can drop $15.00 for 550 rounds of .22 ammo, take the wife, making her leave her .270 at home as well, and make a day of plinking, or become a potato head and let my insecurities make me feel that I have to go shoot a howitzer to prove I stand to pee...
Gonna go with the .22.

I agree with this type of comment totally. Ya i have calibres that will kick the **** out of you and ya i shoot em but you know what? I shoot my 10/22 and marlin 882 ss 22 mag more than anything, well except maybe my warbird. If you think you are such a big bad MAN for shooting the big calibres then come shoot my warbird and ill make sure to post the video of it knockin you into the dirt on here so all can see just how much more manly you are of the rest of us. Im 6'0 175 #s so if you think that recoil makes you a man you are a very juvenile troll.
