I own 14 rimfire guns, 3 are rifles and rest are pistols. There is already 3 or 4 more I want within the next year. Rimfire is so cheap to shoot!

Has everyone who frequents this web-site forsaken their .22 rimfire firearms for center-fire? Help me understand, or at least "tell me to get lost".
I for one won't tell you to get lost! Seems like most of the really dedicated 22 pistol shooters I know are much more into target shooting rather than combat shooting. At the range I frequent most often I rarely see anyone fire a centerfire handgun at more than 7 yards with the exception of handgun hunters.

While I also enjoy defensive pistol shooting I probably get a lot more satisfaction of shooting a nice 25 or 50 yard target with a 22lr.

I shot small bore all through high school and college. I use to work for the Boy Scouts, where I taught the rifle merit badge. A lot.

The next time I want to shoot a .22 LR firearm is if my sister asks me to teach her kid how to shoot.

I've been searching in vain the last 2 weeks for the case I transport my Ruger MkII in. I wouldn't care so much except it contains all 4 of my magazines for that gun, and it has seemingly been swallowed by a black hole. I'm beginning to think it's gone for good somehow and I'll have to buy new mags.

Look at it on the bright side - you could tell your wife the mags are lost therefore it makes more sense to buy a new gun.

That's a bummer.

I wish Ruger still sold those things ... the MK IV comes with a snazzy cardboard box!
