    Ninjatoth, I completely understand your concern about the S&W lawyer-firendly lock. I, for one,
    accept the notion that leaving the lock alone in the disengaged position, renders it
    meaningless. Of cou...

    Stalkingbear. many thanks for the discussion and recommendations. All things being equal, I'd
    acquire a Volquartsen .22Mag in a heartbeat. However, I'm living on Social Security and there's
    not much l...

    I, too, have nice collection of Sigs and decided to broaden my choices by adding some S&W
    revolvers. Luckily I started with a 686 (4-in. barrel). Since then I've added a 617 (10-rd.,
    4-in. barrel) as ...

  • Posted in thread: Any familiar with this vintage .22 box? on 02-06-2016 at 12:30 AM
    I read your post title and just knew for sure you had turned up an old box of Winchester or
    Western Spat-R-Prufs. As a kid (late '40s, early 50s) they were something like $.99 a brick. I
    never came ac...

    I had both but ended up selling off the .17HMR because (at the time) the round was rated only
    for bolt and lever action rifles. (Yes, I know Volquartsen has a semi in the caliber but Ruger
    had already...

    Methinks the a** could use a visit from the animal welfare crew or even (God forbid) the Humane
    Society. Shame the S-O-B himself doesn't break out and play among traffic; he's going to be a
    long-term ...

  • Posted in thread: Ruger 22/45 mark II on 02-03-2016 at 02:18 PM
    I bought my MkII 22/45 at a Pawn Shop about 10 years ago. It was near-new, priced right and had
    my name engraved with a "take me home" on it. It shot flawlessly at the first range session. As
    is my wo...

    My current 10/22 is the Target model with heavy barrel and, now, an aftermarket Boyd's
    thumbhole stock. It has some aftermarket trigger parts and other minor modifications and shoots
    almost as acurate...

  • Posted in thread: semi auto 22 mag on 02-03-2015 at 02:58 AM
    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...
