What the heck is "specialized target ammo"?
IMO, a .22lr will stop almost as many threats as any other more thought of guns and cartridges. Note, I said almost. Ammo quality can very so run something decent thru it and make sure your gun eats it up (doesn't have to be "specialized target ammo" though
). Every 10/22 I've owned, shot or been around will eat up steady diets of both MiniMags and Velocitors without breakin the bank.
