You hear a lot about tactical, which, IMHO, is really about

"tacticool". Don't get me wrong, I'm not claiming a Marlin 60

is a "tactical rifle", far from it.

I've got a Marlin 60(I nicknamed it the "typewriter".) which

spits out rounds faster than any Tacticool 22LR I've ever put

it up against. So much for rate of fire.


It's slim, lightweight, and it's loading tube won't snag in the weeds.

So what's really tactical? Something which looks

cool, is painted black, and costs

250$ more? OR, a light, dependable, accurate rifle you can

deploy quickly and accurately, and carry effortlessly all day?

When the chips are down, you can keep all that AR wannabe

junk, and give me a Nylon 66 or some other vintage semi tubie...

i think that the most practical application for a tactical .22, is to train with it. it is much cheaper to try and train with. The M&P 15-22 will give you a great AR platform. The Ruger 10/22 will be great if your looking at tactical carbines such as the Mini-14 or the Kel-tec SU16. Other than that, it really is about a second kind of cool. Sure, for varmints there are other great rounds like the 17HMR,22WMR, 22-250, 223, 204, and the list goes on. But for pure practice and target shooting the .22lr is the best round by far for the money. So, if i am only using bolt action rifles and dont need to train i wouldnt want a tactical 22. But if i know i will be using other semi-auto rifles, i sure as heck want a tactical 22 for practice.

I'm trying to remember if I thought like that at 15. Doubtful. But possible. The only thing new on that 10/22 in my picture are the Tech Sights -- the rest probably does go back to darn near High School.

I personally am in love with my Ruger 10/22. I have had no problems at all with it. Fresh out of the box it shoots anything and everything. Dirty ass subsonic, cci standard velocity, and it's favorite, high velocity winchester, which even my bolt action would have problems firing. Unfortunately the gun is like any other gun. It has to be cleaned more then once every five years. I don't clean the gun as often as my others but it does get cleaned every other or every few trips to the range or back yard. I just don't see where people can knock them. It's a cheap gun that will shoot cheap ammo. It's highly accurate. Very easily customizable, from top to bottom. I don't know what type of varmint you need to take care of that a .223 or larger would need to be used, but for the price of ammunition for a .22 verse a .17 or a .223, I think the gun speaks for itself.

SWMBO has a SIG 522, eats everything, and shots well.

I didn't even think of armored critters. I'd use a shotgun with slugs for those. I love my shotguns. :-)

Default Armadillos

Do you guys have a problem with armadillos, or do you eat them?
