Here's my latest .22LR


Remmington 40x USMC that I got through the Civlian Marksmanship Program. Looks like shit but will do single hole groups. It has been shot so many times the bolt handle is worn to raw steel. Topped it with a 6-24x Weaver Classic Scope since it didn't come with any sights..

What a beauty! I'd love to get my hands on an old 40x.

Picked up this new M-63 a couple weeks ago, pretty nice trigger, I really like it. Never had an auto I really liked. The nice thing is you pull the trigger 8 times and it goes bang 8 times. Loading mags with them little .22's sux too.

Like Lafitte says, good.

I'm not a great shot, but at 10 yards I can put them all in a 1 ½ " circle, at 25 yards about 4". That was my first time out with it. I haven't seen what ammo it likes, I shot mostly Federal Bulk. That's as good as I've done with my Browning, so yeah I need practice.

Nothing quite like a S&W revolver, from the big boy's right down to this model. Very nice!
I have quite a few 22/45, might have to slip a 22 wheel gun into the mix.

I have an AR7 and it is a real dissapointment. It won't shoot 3 times without a jam. I would love to trade for a papoose.

Haven't shot my AR7 yet. I do know that the Remington bulk.22 does not cycle well in any of my guns. Winchester white box cycles just fine.

Got a new (to me) pistol this weekend.





I was shopping for a new carry gun but couldn't decide, so I got a fun training gun. Plus, I think it makes a good light weight backpacking pistol. It came with a GemTech adapter, guess I'll have to get a can for it!
