    Well... long range for a 22 short. Anyone who is aware of Hickock45, knows about the gong. Check him out shooting the gong with a 22 short. You can almost count the seconds between pulling the trigger and hearing the bullet hit.

    Try a box of CCI CB Longs. First shot you may wonder if the gun actually fired. I have a couple of Remington 550-1s that cycle them semi auto.

    I love those Ruger revolvers, any caliber.

    Dry-firing a .22 rimfire. Remind me never to lend this yahoo one of my guns to play with. OK, he always has fun. Well, you can always tell a teacher, but you can't tell them much...

    Here's the sp101 .22 manual PDF from my google docs, download and Ctrl+f "dry" and read the section that says you can dry fire this firearm without harming it.

    Not being a "troll" by any means. I myself never heard of a .22 rimfire that wasn't going to have the hammer hit around whatever the "chamber" would be and damage something like the face of the breach and/or the firing pin and/or the hammer...

    PDF not linked.

    I'm a big fan of both Hickok45 and Rugers. I already own a SPS-101 in 357 Mag. I guess I may have to find one chambered for .22 or go for a single six or a single ten.:D
