Posted in thread: Long Range .22LR on 07-30-2013 at 06:59 AM
Growing up in a family farm/ranch operation in New Mexico, Dad would free me up to go jack
rabbit hunting when the work was caught up. I would normally take them at a max range of 100
yards with a Win...
Posted in thread: Metal shards in my barrel? Help on 04-08-2013 at 12:06 AM
I agree with the lead shavings but if you still have any doubts just run a magnet of the
debris. I would tear the gun down to see where the shear is occurring. I own a dozen .22
firearms and have neve...
Posted in thread: using a .22 LR for home defense on 03-31-2013 at 07:38 AM
I love .22 rifles and handguns and would use them for self defense if I did not have access to

I bought the first one that arrived at our local dealer last year and the SR1911 is a fine

shorts or longs....
Posted in thread: What .22lr firearms should I avoid? on 02-11-2012 at 08:57 AM
Many years ago I bought a new Iver Johnson TP22 that I had concerns about until I learned that

Posted in thread: Back in the club on 07-21-2011 at 04:47 AM
I bought a new SR1911 a couple of months ago and it's a pretty darned good handgun. I got it
for six hundred dollars and a buddy of mine had to pay more at the same gunshop just a few
weeks later. I g...
