    I have heard MANY people say "Every decent gun owner has a 22lr"

    Answer this question...Why should I/anyone own a 22lr?

    Cheap trigger therapy / range time.

    Probably some indecent gunowners with a 22 LR also. :D

    Well I can only speak for me. One thing is a matter of economics I can shoot more. Then it is something that is good to start.a young person or a lady off shooting if they are not intimidated by the sound or recoil they will have much more fun. I just love to shoot but if I only take my 45 auto or 44 mag I can't shoot as much

    Well, in a SHTF situation when one might have to travel light, the .22 could be very valuable.

    Answer this question...Why should I/anyone own a 22lr?

    @TooStrongTerry[/QUOTE]

    the same question could be asked for any caliber.....but to answer the question fun cheap shooting i have kids they have learned to shoot with a .22lr i learned to shoot with a .22lr i hunt small game with a .22lr i could go on and on i think. also why not own one if my wallet and wife allowed i would own every caliber known to man.

    The 22lr has been around a good many years.
    Probably the most efficient gun since the flintlock.
    A pocket full of bullets and a hunting we will go.

    I love my .22. It's cheap to shoot, good, cheap practice for me and should the situation ever arise, I could use to to hunt small game. It is a very fun gun to shoot.

    That's her there pictured in my avatar. I hope to get a .22 rifle soon, too. A Henry Lever repeater.

    Keep it up fella's (and lady)! We'll drowned him in civility!

    I love my 22. Marlin model 60. Cheap to shoot, accurate, quiet (relatively,) and almost no recoil.

    It's what I learned to shoot with, my wife loves her 10/22, and it's what we'll teach our daughter's to shoot with (no sons yet :( ;) )

    Just like everyone else, they are just fun and cheap to shoot plus I can buy a ton of ammo for next to nothing.
    And once my son gets here and is old enough to shoot, that's what he will be learning with. Single shot lever action just like the rest of the men in the family.

    I love 22 lr. I have 9 total including the old Sears Roebuck JC Higgins bolt action I was given as an eight year old.
    For a little money you can shoot all day.
