    No.

    .22LR casings are .22 in diameter, but a .22 mag casing is larger, like .25 or .27.

    Some lights/other rail stuff also can butt up against the linear platform.

    I didnt like the vertical at first on my CZ duty 9mm, but it has grown on me.
    It does leave a bit of room for the trigger finger to "hover" off/over the trigger- also allows room for thin gloves.

    It is not advised. With your support hand fingers around the trigger guard, pressure from your support hand will push/pull the gun off target easier. It acts as a lever so any amount of incorrect pressure from your support hand is magnified.

    ^^^ those are great :lol3

    There's something about a .22 that just says "have a few giggles"

    Down in the little gully at the bottom of our property where I shoot, a big elm fell across it a couple years ago. I now have a bunch of old parts, pots and pans, and pieces of scrap metal hung from the tree via mason's twine. PERFECTfor the .22 - pa-TING, pa-TING, pa-TING, and stuff just swings all over the place :D

    Cool. I'd like to get to the point I have metal spinner targets for guns up to .357 or .30cal. To that extent I have targets up to .38 that won't get dented. But most my targets are for the 9mm.

    I guess I never got the urge to shoot metal targets. I use to shoot beer cans for awhile but it is more fun for me now to see how small a group I can make on a paper target. But I know that the sound of bullets hitting metal turn many on.

    For me it's more a matter of seeing the item react. I still do lots of paper working on accuracy but it's nice to just shoot and know it was a hit. Plus I paint mine so they show where you actually hit them. :deal

    It's just fun to shoot reactive targets. Small gongs at 200 yds or more.
    Paint balls are fun too, I slapped together a stand for those.

    I just like the noise, and seeing things move. The physical reaction blends nicely with the report and the recoil. Plus I'm a lousy shot so the Yes/No outcome is less discouraging :D

    Yeah, this wasn't my first attempt either at making different spinner or reactive targets. I think this has been the most successful one and the one people enjoy the most.

    Is this 500 grade steel? So far I don't have anything that will survive a rifle well as I found out with the 7.62x54. :eek1
