Heritage Rough Rider 6.5" barrel
S&W M&P 22 Compact

They are both fun. The M&P is more reliable than any 22 auto should be. It even cycles cci quiets. It is the perfect size. Accuracy is only ok, though and that bugs me. I've been thinking hard about picking up a Browning Buckmark.

1972 High Standard Victor-the pistol I learned to shoot with.
Oh yeah! Mine is a 1975 High Standard Victor that I also learned to shoot with. In my younger days I would head shoot rabbits and squirrels with it. Very accurate!

Supermatic

My supermatic doubles as a tack driver. The High Standard is the only one that has won at camp Perry.
I'm not that good, but the pistol is.

I have a Ruger Single Ten that I Love. It's great to take out to the woods with me for small game or trapping. I also have a Browning Buckmark that is a great range gun.

I have the much-derided Beretta Neos. Funny looking dude for sure, but reliable and accurate.

Ruger MK II which I enjoy shooting
S&W Model 17 I have two of them and really enjoy shooting them
NEF R92 This little 9 shot revolver was given to me years ago and for what it is it actually shoots fairly well.



Always looking for another rimfire revolver or semi auto. Maybe a good Browning Buckmark or another Ruger single six.

Ron,

Got a pre-Model 17 (made in 1947) on it's way to me. A .22 revolver looks like fun.

You are going to love the pre model 17. Mine are a Model 17 and a 17-2 and they have a nice balance as well as really nice trigger. Hope you really enjoy yours when you get it.

I can't remember all the 22 pistols I've owned. My brother can and hacks on me all the time
for selling or trading pistol X back in 60s & 70s. I had all the match grade autos back in early 70s. Back then you could buy all them you wanted but the only one I regret selling was a Browning Medalist. One thing people don't take in to consideration was the value of
the dollar 50 yrs ago. They were available new but were never cheap compared to value of
money. A Ruger Std Auto was $37.50 a K22 was about $100 the same as a Colt 1911.

Something I forgot to mention earlier which is a slight PITA to setup but fun to shoot is my conversion.



Since I have a stash of Colt Series 70 Government guns I can use it with any of them.

You sold me really nice brass.

Yeah, I sort of collect the Series 70 Guns. Been hoping a nice 9mm comes along, I already have a 38 Super and several 45 ACP. They are really fun to shoot using the 22 LR conversion kit.

I've had a 1991 Ruger SP101 22lr, 6-shot and 4" full lug barrel for a while now. I just bought a 2018 shot show Browning BuckMark Field/Target Micro becuase they were running that $100 rebate for black friday. Both are very nice and the Buckmark has one of the best out-of-box trigger I've ever come across, especially for the money.
