    My father flew the P-47 in the Pacific throughout WWII. To his dying day (end of 2012 at just
    short of 92), he swore it was the "best." During his 5th Air Force time he also flew P-38s,
    P-40s, and a S...

    I use a Nikon Prostaff 3-9x40 EFR with precision reticle on my Kimber 82G for 50 yard
    benchrest. I'm a happy camper.

  • Posted in thread: For my wife: Ruger SR22 vs. Sig Mosquito. on 05-29-2014 at 01:45 PM
    The SR22 should be the better choice in this instance. The Mosquito can be finicky, if one
    isn't accustomed to maintaining a firearm. I've had several over the years (and still have my
    first 'Sport' v...

  • Posted in thread: Why, why, why is .22 ammo still so difficult to get??? on 05-04-2014 at 07:22 PM
    From where I sit, it appears to be a case of being told there's a shortage so panic buying
    ensues and the beneficiaries are the scalpers and the gougers. For my part, I just sit on the
    sidelines and r...

    The unmentioned major factor for me was the magazine release. I ended up with a MkII
    22/45...and love it. I held off on a Mark until the MkIIIs were out. I bought a fluted barrel
    MkIII instead of the ...

    'Tis a pity you're only being offered one. I have a 9422M that I dearly love. I've tried a few
    times to get a .22LR but came up short each time, so I had to settle for a Henry H001T. My
    wife, especial...

  • Posted in thread: How much for 500rds of 22lr?? on 06-13-2013 at 04:05 PM
    According to what I've read, American manufacturers typically produce somewhere between 2-1/2
    and 3-billion rounds of .22LR a year. Perhaps as much as another billion rounds is imported
    from off-shore...

    Season 5 is a major improvement over the past. As has been cited, elimination of the
    personality by-play and clubhouse drama is the most noticeable improvement. Still, it strikes
    me that too much time...
