    Until about a year ago I had two Remington 597s; one started life as a heavy barreled .22WMR
    the other was born as a .17HMR and went through the conversion process to .22WMR after the
    recall. Early on...

    Many thanks for the reply ... and directions. You folks are shooting exactly the kinds of
    matches I wish I could find around these parts. As soon as I can, I'll participate.

    Where's Crooked Oak? I'm over in Olive Branch and NW Alabama isn't that far away on US 78
    (Corridor X; someday I-22). I've got a heavy barrel 10/22 and a MkIII Hunter, both with optics
    and set up for ...

    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.

    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...

    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...

  • Posted in thread: Ruger MK II on 05-04-2014 at 06:45 PM
    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 ...
