When I start buying again I will probably buy mostly 22s. All the fun, half the cost(or less).
Oh, you think that now
. Wait until you get the bug for old Winchester and Remington pump-actions. Then there are S&W K-22's, and...ermagherd, is that a Colt Ace?
Collecting nice rimfires can get pricey quick
Honestly, I don't know how many are enough
. When I have problems taking care of them, perhaps that'll give me an idea.
