My Contender: 14" SS 22 Long Rifle Match.
I really enjoy this Ruger Single Six. 22LR, with 22 Magnum cylinder. It's a hoot shooting at a ram swinger at 50 yds with it... good thing 22LR is cheap.
I don't own a Contender yet, but I do own the .22/.22 Mag, but could not find a pic. Here is my Single Six in polished stainless .32 H&R Magnum no longer made. Oh wait this violates the rimfire thing.
My friend has an old High Standard Durango .22 revolver. It has a swing out cylinder, very easy to use pistol.
Boy howdy I wish Ruger'd do that with their Single Six convertible. Such a PIA to remove little 22 empties one at a time.
With the Durango or 999 you can go through a half-brick faster than a bag of chips. And that's even with putting the empty brass into a bag rather than the ground.
I should go dust some of mine off....KKW, Mauser ES430 (pre-war), Mossberg 46M (two) and a Stevens 416.
I love a good 22!
I've got a few I'd like to show off.
Ruger 10/22, Mine's special because my wife gave it to me for a wedding present.
Browning Buckmark Camo Camper, 5 1/2" bull barrel
Marlin 39A and Colt Single Action Frontier Scout with 4 3/4" barrel.
My Dad bought both of those sometime back in the 50's I think. I've shot a lot of rounds out of them over the years. Good times.
More of the Colt.
And this one I've never shot. Dad always said it was worn out and too dangerous to shoot. It's a bit rare I think.
Winchester Thumb Trigger Model.
No conventional trigger, just a small lever you push down to release the firing pin.
And here it is cocked.
The old thing was my Grandfathers (or Great Grandfathers) and is really beat up thanks to all the kids who shot it over the years.
I've never been into punching holes in paper targets, but give me a pocket full of .22 cartridges, some empty pop cans and I'm a happy camper.
From top to bottom
Savage Model 93 22 Mag. bolt action, Marlin Model 60 semi-auto, and a Remingtom Model 24 semi-auto that is chambered for 22 short only
What, no papooses?
I got one o' them recently. Was using a military .45 shoulder holster for it while on the range. When we got back, I found an old military hip holster with the foldover flap(?) little modification and some black leather dye and it looks pretty good. I'll grab a pic of that later and edit it in.
I like that 22/45 nice feel and accurate.
I don't have one, but I was just trying to decide amongst a Marlin Papoose and a Henry US Survival Rifle (AR-7 clone). I think I like the Henry better so far.
same holster for both 22/45 and colt combat commander
nothing fancy but it does the job while going to my fav spot in the wilderness
stuff a Volquartzen trigger group in it and be done with it...
Beautiful 1911 there man!
My father gave my mom one of these for their aniv. one year. We had it in the family for years and Dad has been gone for a very long time. One day about 6 years ago my mom was tight on cash and took it to a gun shop and sold it. I would have given her almost anything for it.
It broke my heart. Not so much that it was about that gun, but it was a part of my father that is now gone.
It was a beauty, not a mark on it and it shot very nice, Belgium made. Oh well, life goes on.
Not mine, but I do not have a picture of mine. My father gave all of kids one for Christmas one year. I was ......very young. so that makes mine "about" 48 years old. It is all original including the leather sling that it came with. My dad taught us all how to shoot with this little rifle.
The best part, I taught my son to shoot with the very same rifle.
I had one of those for a couple of years a long time back......nice gun but I didn't like the way it ejected the spent shells out the bottom, they would often hit me in the wrist because of the way I held the gun and if I was wearing the right (or wrong) kind of long-sleeve shirt I'd have hot brass dropping down the cuff. I found myself holding it at an awkward angle when I shot it, so ultimately sold it. They are definitely an old classic, however.
