A better question to me is what 22 handguns do you actually shoot? In my case, that means 5 or 6 22 handguns and it is about equal self loader to revolver. The majority of the Colts that I own do not get shot EVER. That's why I still buy shooters. To some, they are all shooters. But I can't see shooting a $3000 revolver just because I feel like it when I can shoot a $400 or $600 handgun and have just as much fun.

Just one, which also happens to be my very first-ever handgun...a 6.5 inch barrel Ruger Single Six. As an aside, it came from the factory blued, but over 10 years ago, I sent if off to Mahovsky's, and they applied their SS Chromium M finish to it. So, now it looks like it's got a matte stainless finish, which looks great, no visible wear anywhere, and rust simply does not not happen.

Smith 22a and an NAA Pug in .22mag ... amazed at some of the .22 collections listed here ... I've owed others, including a Ruger which I don't miss and a Taurus .22mag which I wish I still had ...

Only one, PT-22 (Taurus). Agree with some other members that this one doesn't fire as consistently as other models, but then I haven't finished breaking this one in yet. It'll usually keep the peace, though!

I used to keep a few 22’s around. One was a semiautomatic the rest are revolvers. Unfortunately they were lost at sea, during the collision with an ice berg.

A Ruger New Single Six, with 2 cylinders (22LR & Magnum). Satin Stainless and a beauty.

A Ruger 22/45 MK III, 22LR. It had a Bushnell TR-25 Ultra-Compact Red Dot on the top rail. On the bottom rail was a Sig Sauer CPL-RWR-R Compact Pistol Laser Rail. A neat little red laser sight. A real pain to disassembly but a great shooter.

Displayed with the Mark III is a Sig Sauer Mosquito. She usually gets a range trip about once a week. After getting over her preference for CCI Mini Mags she’ll shoot practically anything now. I put the Sig Sauer CPL-RWR-R Compact Pistol Laser Rail on her for a couple of range trips and she turned into a tack driver.

A High Standard, Double Nine, Model W-104. This one was made in 1962. I acquired her from a friend who got her in 1970. I traded him a NAA Black Widow for it. A Classic but not a great shooter like the Ruger Single Six. She’s in great shape for her age.

Last is a Smith & Wesson 1, 2nd Issue, made in 1865. No range trips for this Old Gal. At 147 Years of Age she needs a break. Polished her up lightly with some Renaissance Wax and she’s a Safe Queen.

Only 3 for now.

Beretta 21A, fun little piece. After a fluff & buff is reliable and shoots cheap ammo



My favorite to shoot M-63



Beretta M-76, in case I really want to hit something.

Anyone can own a supressor that can own a gun. Just pay a $200 ridicilous fed tax, buy the can...wait 8 months to 10 for the approval. And thar you have it. It's hefty cost....but its extremely fun to fire and the neighbors think I'm shooting a pellet pistol.

Love the .22's

Smith & Wesson 22A . . . . my workhorse with many thousands of rounds through it.
Beretta NEOS INOX with 4.5" barrel . . . . my favorite and my league gun
Beretta NEOS black with 6 barrel . . . . . bought for leagues but just didn't like it as well as the 4.5" INOX
Buckmark Camper with SS 6" barrel . . . . my sons league gun
Ruger Mark III 22/45 . . . . because you have to have a Mark II or III
Walther P22 . . . . just because it's cool (albeit finicky, I may get a Mosquito some day too )

Quote:
A better question to me is what 22 handguns do you actually shoot?
All of them, but the 22A, the 4.5" NEOS, and the Buckmark get the most range time.

Yup, the Kadet is pretty sweet,

but the Mark II is nice as well.

Now I need a good .22 revolver, something small.
