The thread on what kinds of .22s reminded me of having this. The fact it's a .22 has no bearing on what little use it gets. Ever have a guest in your home make the statement "I don't like guns?" or other anti drivel. I find that bringing this out and claiming it to be my favorite firearm makes some turn fishbelly white and gasp for air. Also a bit of enhancement(read lies) like" It fires 800 shots per minute" or " a magazine is empty in 1/3 of a second" usually stops the conversation cold. Hell, my wife even gets a kick out of it.
