Another .22 fan here - about 8 rifles, a dozen or more revolvers and almost as many semi-auto pistols.
Since this is the rifle forum, I will mention my latest passion has been pump action .22s. I now have 3 - a Remington 572, an old Marlin Model 20 and a Browning BP22. I am left handed, so most bolt action rifles are out for me. Lever action and semi-autos were my first .22 rifles and I still like them, but the pump guns are fun to operate.
