The S&W .22 Kit Gun. Anybody have one of these wee beauties? They've become "prohibited" here in Canada thanks to our "Little Old Lady" hand gun fears. Anything with a 4" pr shorter tube is verboten! 4.0000001" is just like every other handgun, restricted. Is there another, perhaps 4.2" barrelled, DA .22 out there that could take it's place? I'm picking up a 4 5/8 " Ruger Single 10.....hope that will be a good alternative? Just want a cheap to feed little plinker.

I have a 2" M34 Kit Gun. I love the little thing! If I wanted or had to get something similar, I would look at the Ruger SP-101 22. It has a 4.2" bbl, I suppose just for our Canadian cousins.

Nearly every load I tried this afternoon grouped like this...

FWIW: A few neat firearms...

Chaippa - the people who make and sell the Rhino revolver that shoots from the bottom of the cylinder?

Well, they make and sell a few other firearms which are not quite so "unique", but are interesting in their own right.

First, what caught my eye was a break open single shot skeletonized .22 rimfire rifle. I own an M6 Scout and a Pack-Rifle, so I always am interested in little backpacking rifles/etc.

http://www.chiappafirearms.com/product/2599



The other thing is that they sell what they call "mini-Sharps", in short, a series of smaller Sharps replicas/clones/whatever that are chambered for lighter cartridges like .17 HMR, .22 LR, .22 Hornet, on up to .30-30.

I already own a .45-70 (Marlin lever action), but I would like a nice Sharps like rifle just for fun shooting.

Why fuck with success? I think it was Jack O'Conner who said that if your rifle inspires your confidence you will shoot better with it.

Hog sausage...yum.

Just big pests that tear stuff up. Them are some tough critters as well. Guy I use to work with had a upper leg bone with a bullet in it....it had been there for a LONG time.

Depends on the game you're shooting. Trap will generally use Full chokes (for a single barrel, modifed and full for an over under) due to longer shots. If you're shooting skeet, use a Skeet or Improved choke to get a wider pattern. If you're shooting sporting clays or 5 stand, you might change chokes at every station. It all depends on how long the shot is, and if it's a crossing shot or straight shot.

So, do you like the single six? They're really hard to find up here. Think they're only importing the single ten. I can live with four more rounds. Always liked the feel of the little SA.
