Baldy, those are about my speed. When I was a youngster, I killed many a squirrel and rabbit with a Remington single-shot .22. Could hit a rabbit running. After getting a Auto my accuracy dropped drastically because I knew I had more that one shot. Nothing like a single-shot to make a good shooter out of you.

I grew up with a single shot Sheridan Blue Streak 5mm pellet rifle, it was a loud and time consuming to pump the thing, so you learn to make each shot count.

Thanks Baldy! I've had one hell of a time getting that 10/22 together.

Single-Shot 22 short rifles are good for in-city plinking. [}:)]

I shot a friend's MKII a while back and love it. I think I'll try to find me one. Might also look into a 22/45 since I hear they feel similar in the hand to the 1911.

I have a MK I, Civilian target model. Well, I should have said HAD, my wife has kinda latched onto it and claims it to be "HERS" now. Oh well, at least she lets me shoot it.
I still have my first gun, a Springfield model 15 single shot. It was given to me by my grandpa when I was 14.
I have a Remmington Nylon 66. It was the first new gun I ever bought.

Yeah, I have a little lady that didn't even want to be in the same county as "an evil killing machine", but for my birthday a couple of years ago I begged her to go to the range with me. She since then has taken over a Ruger Single Six in 22LR/22WMR and also an AR-15 with dedicated 22LR upper. She keeps eyeing a Springfield 1911 that's a dedicated 22LR, but I keep her distracted with other things.

About 6 years ago, like a dummy, I bought a Remington Model 597. The 597 is a okay/good rifle, but I can do alot more with the 10/22. So my best friend gave me one of his Ruger Stainless 10/22 as a birthday present a few years back. About this time last year my uncle gave me his Ruger Mk I that his father gave him. I have yet to shoot the Mk I, I wanted to tear it down and go through it to make sure it's ready to go.

10/22 of course, 22/45, and the one gun that always goes to the range, my SS Single-Six.

The perfect accessory for a Single Six, by the way, is a 14 year old boy. 8 year olds are pretty good, too, I find.

Same here on th Single Six. I have a 8 year old Grandson that I bought a Bearcat for, and he takes it shooting nearly everytime I go. By the way, Welcome to the Board. Hope you like it here.

Over all these years, I too feel the .22 is probably my (our) favorite caliber. I say 'our' as my wife collects Ruger old model .22's. The RST's & Mk I'red eagles', the Bearcats, and the early 'flatgate' Single Sixes. She enjoys them as collectors piecs and has a couple she will even shoot now and then.
My rifles are both Ruger 10/22 and couple of Marlins, a 39a and the Mountie 39, they are lever actions and were my first rifles.
The 10/22's are a couple of the walmart 'specials' black /grey laminated mannlicher stocks (RSI) One was a gift 'action job' from Chief AJ to my son Joe for helping him out at some of the gun shows years ago. Very sweet shooting and very accurate too. I keep another 10/22 all weather , fiber stock ,in the corner for any 'varmints' out back.
I shot competitively for many years with a High Standard Military Trophy. THE most accurate gun I have ever had or even shot. First one I got back in 1969 and it's still here. Have added a Victor, with the 'rare' slant grip, as a "keeper". Had two of them ,but like a dummy, I sold one off to a friend years ago for him to shoot, and he will NOT sell it back either.. A very rare gun too. Few were made.

Anyway, the .22 is cheap, affordable to shoot. Is fun and effective , and as I said has to be our 'favorite'.;)

In rifles I have 2 Ruger 10/22s, Savage Mod 10C bolt, Winchester 9422 lever (22 LR, NIB), Remington Mod 511 bolt, Marlin 39A lever, and a CZ 452-2E bolt. In hand guns I have 2 Ruger OM and 2 NM Single-Sixes, Ruger MK III, a Walther P-22, S&W Mod 17, and a Colt Ace (1911).

Though center fires are great, I enjoy shooting my 22s more than anything else.
