    While over the years i have collected and had some nice guns and i still plan on having a few more. I find myself these days leaning towards. the 22lr of all styles. they are fun to shoot and cheap to boot and what you can do with the gun itself is only limited with your imagination. Anybody else feel this way?

    I always have projects in various stages of completion, always. When one starts cutting me too deep financially to finish immediately, I love falling back to one of my 10/22's that I thought was "finished". Fun to tweak for free or little cash outlay and easy and cheap enough to burn off some rounds when it's "finished" again.

    If they are the true classics I do enjoy them more than I should. However it seems 95% of the guns are inexpensive kids guns. However when I see a Winchester, 1890, 1906, 61, 62, 63, 52, or a Remington 12, or Browning 22 automatic to name a few I get all a twitter.

    I love shooting my 22s. Got four rifles and two pistols. Looking to add one more of each very soon. (Ruger 10/22 and hopefully a 1911 22.)

    Hi. My name is C3, and I'm a .22aholic.

    The difference between 22s and heroin- with heroin, first taste is free, and you do not have to hang out in dingy alleys to buy 22s. Before the HORRIBLE boating accident, I had a Remington Speedmaster, a Gamemaster, and Targetmaster. 4 of the 550-1s. 2 Marlin 39As. 3 of the Savage/Stevens 86C's. About a dozen Mossberg 22s from the 40's and 50's. And a few 22 pistols and revolvers.

    They just sorta sneak up on you, you tell yourself I can quit any time, it is not expensive to feed them, and pretty soon, dealers and friends know you as the guy that likes Mossbergs, or Remingtons, or whatever.

    It's too lstr for me, save yourself- and pass me those really small cleaning patches.....:p

    "One can never have too many 22lr's"!!

    I've got 8 and they're all rifles. No handguns yet but I'm working on it. I keep on thinking that my next gun will be something other than a .22 but I keep coming back to them. Right now I'm lusting after a CZ 452 Trainer even though I just bought a Henry Frontier that I haven't even shot yet.

    Thank God I'm not the only one. I don't have a clue how many .22s I own, but it never seems like enough.

    love 22's some of them you can pretty much abuse and they still work because there so simple. Also you can make you own out of stuff you get from a hard ware store, my favorite round next to the 30-06.

    I guess im backwards..... I had a bunch of .22's but ended up getting rid of them. I do agree that .22s are great and cheap, But between my Weatherby and Winchester 63, the others just sat... Im not into the "tacticool" thing, so even my 10/22 has become a "case queen". Even though these guns are old, I still think these shoot better than a couple of my friends "pimped out" 10/22's

    You obviously didn't pay attention in algebra class did you? :confused: :( 2 < x = x-2. It's your problem to find x, I just want 2 of those 22's :D :p

    I've got 5 - .22's of various kinds. They always go to range with us. Fun to shoot without breaking the bank. :cool:

    Before the fire I had several 22s:
    GREAT SHOOTERS Rem 511, Ranger, Stevens 84c, Rem572, Ruger Single Six
    GOOD SHOOTERS; BLR 22, Rem 514, J C Higgens 33, Rem121
    FAIR SHOOTERS; H&R 929, Marlin 60
    POOR SHOOTERS;Mossberg 702, Davis Derringer
    I don't really try to acquire 22s they just somehow seem to find me.
    Damned fire! I really miss them all. This list is from memory, I'm shure I left some out.
