The rimfire handgun I shoot most is my Korth, the rest is just ... inventory.

Missing Old Guns

I have a few that I miss myself. The usual sold by a ex-wife while I was on assignment. She became an ex shortly afterwards but we will leave that alone in the past where it belongs. I've bought plenty since then.

Nice looking Korth though.

I only own one .22 handgun: an H&R Model 999 Sportsman with a 6" barrel. While I enjoy that gun and appreciate the usefulness of a good .22 handgun, rimfires have never been my primary area of interest and, as such, I've never felt the need for more than one.

My 22 caliber handguns

I have managed to fill a rack with 22 caliber handguns. Some I am quite attached to, and others I bought to resell to finance other purchases.My two current favorites, mainly for their accuracy and feel in my hand are-
S & W 22A semi-Auto
and
Taurus Model 990 4" SS

here they are




I have two FIE Single Action 22's. One is a regular "Buffalo Scout" model,
and the other is a Gold-Plated version called "The Yellow Rose of Texas" Model
Here it is-



Add to this a Rossi early Model 70, an Iver Johnson SIDEWINDER that I sold today on GunsAmerica, and a couple of Older Taurus revolvers.

Not bad at all IdahoMike (don't short yourself).

Now the last I heard about ol' 'Slim Pickens' is that he's kinda making himself an 'unwelcome guest' in many a folks home nowadays .

My 'collection' is meager, but loved.

Colt Frontier Scout - came with .22 Magnum cylinder, don't really shoot it much as it is Grandpa's revolver, more of a family thing than an everyday shooter.

Smith & Wesson M&P 22 -bought it Monday, love it. That pistol will see many, many rounds in its future.

highpower3006,

Classic and beautiful guns that made/make America proud ! One can debate which country makes the best semis, but no one can doubt that the U.S. has been the world's greatest designer/manufacturer of Revolvers.

That said, I was just going to ask you how old is the ammo in the pic?

-Cheers

I'm not real sure, I think the Remington dates from around WWII +or- a couple years. The Winchester is probably from the '50's and I bought the Peters to hunt ground squirrels with when I was around 13 or so (1964). I also have a brick of Sears branded .22's that I bought around the same time.
