For all out fun I shoot a Winchester 1892. For hunting I shoot a Mossberg Mod. 44 US (c). When I go to the range I bring a .22 Rimfire to shoot to help with flinching, after you shoot a Rem. .375 UM you develop a slight flinch. Shooting the .22 help me out. Shadowjack1

I purchased the Mod. 44US from the Marine Corps while I was still active. In 1974 I used this same rifle to take 1St. place in the small bore indoor event at Parris Island and MCAS Beaufort SC. It still shoots two bullets in one hole in the prone position. Shadowjack1

Calico's "politically correct" thumbhole-stock sporter fits me absolutely perfectly. Still not as pretty as a Thompson/Center Contender carbine in "whatever" caliber, though.

I absolutely love my Henry Goldenboy. It shoots 22 S, L, or LR, and it has the smoothest lever action I've ever felt. Very accurate, and comes right up on target. [img]http://www.henryrepeating.com/images/goldenboy.jpg[/img] (Photo taken from Henry's website)

I really like my Savage Mk II Light Varmint. A friend traded me an old Weaver 12x with target hairs, to hard on his eyes, and the rifle shot three rounds @ 50 yds into a 8mm case. Two were off center and the third straight though. Doubt i'll ever do that again!

I have a Remington 241 Speed Master. It is a little semi-automatic rifle that was originally designed by John Browning. It is also a take down rifle. Pretty Neat.

My Nylon 66 with the duct tape wrap concealing the crack in the unbreakable stock is all class. And it's my first firearm. You can't argue against the 10/22. I tried for a while, but wound up with one after accumulating a couple of the 25 round mags. There's a pretty cool Model 52 with a varmint taper barrel up for sale that I have been goggling. And then there's always the grandparents Walther .22 Sportsmodell. That thing is a marvel of "overbuilt." I have only seen one, and wish that I could find another, because I don't think I'm gonna get it in the will.

My dad's Winchester model 75 target rifle. Man that thing's nice. 10 rnd detachable magazine, beautiful walnut target stock, 28" barrel, precision sights. Weighs about 10 lbs, though. I'd love to put a nice scope on it.

Remington Nylon 77. (A Nylon 66 with a clip). #1 - Shoot forever without even cleaning it.

10/22 is one of the best guns ever made. Cheap, accurate and a lot of fun.

Mine would have to be my Calico m-100 with 4 drums and a red dot. But in a close 2td would be the 10/22. But I also love my bolt action Marlin 880sq. SCAR

I would have to say the Marlin Golden 39A first, it one of those rifles that just fit perfect and I can hit anything I point it at. Second would have to be my Ruger 10/22, but my favorite rimfire of all is my old model Ruger Single Six .22/.22 mag. [pistol]

I'm with you Bostonterrier97. I have an early Remington Speedmaster that has been handed down from my grandfather to my father to me. I will give it to my oldest son when he turns 18 in a couple of days. It is easily the most accurate simi auto remfire rifle I have ever owned. Love those sleek lines too. Rocketman

My favorite is the first gun I ever shot at about age 4 or 5. Still have it to this day...THANKS DAD! It's an Ithaca lever action .22LR with an octagonal barrel and peep site. I don't know the model number (embarassing) but it was a limited/collector's edition that my father bought for me soon after I was born. What a great quality rifle it is!!! It makes me realize that I need to buy my children (3 and 1 1/2) a nice quality rifle now for them to keep the rest of their lives. It's truly a wonderful gift.

I use a Ruger 77/22 with an old Redfield 5-Star 3x9 Scope and Harris Bipod. Use it for elminating the 3 hated varmints on my property and in my fish pond. Turtles, Nutria Rats and Armadillos (I'm sorry that it is the "Texas State Animal" and would gladly deport the whole lot). It is very accurate as I only shoot in the prone (Ambush)as turtles and nutrias have excellent eyesight spotting any movement at all. (Edit: I had originally put "Leupold" 5-Star)
Link Posted: 8/1/2001 8:45:21 AM EDT
It is hard to argue with the Marlin 60. But I will argue the 10/22 =P I prefer the Remington 597 to the Ruger. It is cheaper, more acurate, and just as reliable :) Right now my collection of .22s consist of the following. Rem 597 Stainless with a laminate stock. )My personal Fav.) Rem 597 Heavy barrel target rifle with a Laminate stock Rem 597 Mag with A Synthetic stock. Ruger 77/22 stailess/synthetic with a 2.5X7 weaver scope.

I have a couple - here's my Ruger 10/22 T - a tack driver out of the box! [img]http://wsphotofews.excite.com/030/YX/Ci/AR/YM49070.jpg[/img] I also have a Winchester 69A that I've had since I was about 6. My very first .22 now belongs to my 6 year old nephew. I don't remember the make or model but it's a really old very small single shot. Recently my dad gave me one of his old match rifles. He was ranked #2 nationally in small bore back in 1947 or 48. #1 was a guy named Larry Moore who was the Co-Captain of my dad's team at Aberdeen Proving Ground. The rifle is a Springfield M2 training rifle heavily modified by the APG small arms shop.

Gotta love it. 100% reliable, acurate, cool looking, and compact. I can't sat enoght good things about Calico's. That's why I can't wait until 04' when they can start making guns again. [rail]

Ithaca model 49 lever action single shot. I picked it up at a gun show back in the 80's for $49. Shoots great but its not the best looking thing in the world. It's the ultimate behind the seat truck gun. It's been carried more miles than its been shot and thats saying something.

Gus, my dad's Winchester model 75 looks almost exactly like your dad's Springfield, except it has a little banana clip poking out from the bottom.

I love .22's. For just plane screwing around i like my AR carbine with a Ceiner in it, a stack of 30 round mags a Gatt trigger. For all round high accuracy hunting type work a suppressed tactical rig with a leupold tactical scope gets it done the back up unit is a Kimber bolt gun with the same scope. For extreme accuracy the Suhl with Mcmillan BR stock, 36X target scope and a Hohn barrel tunner set at 186 shooting Lapuas--hoo yaa!

I haven't seen a model 75. I'll have to check them out since I've been thinking of buying a modern small bore match rifle - was wondering if Anschutz(sp?) was all there was available any more. The Springfield originally had a little mag hanging out from the bottom (I think) but now it is purely single shot. Back when it was made you could not go out and buy an off the shelf match rifle. The stock, trigger guard, hand stop, and floorplate were made by hand by my dad in the basement of his house. The only real Springfield parts left on the gun are the receiver and the bolt. The bull barrel was made by a guy named Eric Johnson, who was regarded as the best small bore barrel maker of the time. This gun has the last barrel he made before he died. Also, it has a Timney trigger (still available for this gun!) and custom made scope mounts, sight mounts, and front sight globe (the one in the pic is non original aftermarket). The rear sight is a Redfield with custom mounting. The gun weighs about 16 pounds! Takes a little stamina to do well off hand for more than a few shots. I was shooting through one hole with Tenex at 25 yards prone with a sling.. And that's with the iron sights and me not having shot match style positions in over 20 years! I want a modern gun because I worry a lot when the Springfield is away from home.

There are a few choces for a competitive smallbore rifle besides the Anschutz. IF you really want to win go with a Suhl with the barrel that is on it, any barrel tunner will work with this rifle and you will have a rifle that will outshoot the Anschutz(and everything else) all day long. There are also a few custom action makers for smallbore but they are pricey, when all is said and done, and you still won't beat the Suhl most days. Be prepared to spend $2,000 for a rifle that will win even a small BR 50/50 competition. THe kimber that is being sold by the DCM program is a POS.

Winchester 52c bull barrel toped with a 20x 2" Unertl Programmer. Has the finest trigger ever put on a production gun. Close to a Jewell but no backlash. The only varmints I shoot with it are flies at 50yds. Take a clean white target and smear a little jelly in various spots. Within minutes you will have unlimeted targets to shoot at. The green/blue blow flies are the best. Big ones will leave a dime sized gut pile with a center hit. Its a great way to introduce kids to firearms. My 7yr old daughter loves it.

Remington 511 Scoremaster. Given to me by my uncle when I was about 9 years old. It was old when he gave it to me. A little beat up, but still accurate. Shoots everything you feed it, even shot shells, with no problems. It's not as pretty as my Ruger 10/22 or Marlin model 60. And it will never be as nice as my Winchester model 63. But the 511 will always be my favorite.
Link Posted: 8/2/2001 4:28:15 PM EDT
[qoute]You have specific complaints or is this just your personal take on the rifle? I thought the one I shot was a fine rifle, accurate, heavy enough to shoot offhand, decent sights and an adjustable trigger. Do you have personal experience with the Kimber 82?[/quote] I have one of Kimbers newest offerings i must admit it is beutiful to look at, and it is ok for a squirrel gun(for sale $600). The DCM surplus guns for $600+shipping may be ok as a squirrel gun as well, for $600 you can do much better. The Kimber does not have the basic accuracy to win even smaller matches and you will note they are not present in the top ten winners circle--ever. I only shoot BR but i can tell you that if the rifle will not put nine of ten rounds through the X ring(.2) at fifty yards you don't stand a chance and the kimber does not have a chance.

My Winchester 62 that starred in my childhood and has accounted for a staggering number of squirrels, rabbits, blackbirds, and even a few large mouth bass is right up there even though you have to hold the pump handle forward to get the bolt to close tight now. Now it's the Marlin Golden 39A with a Foolproof. Great rig. Have three no safety, no warning, oil finished stocks. Can't beat 'em.

Well, I have a Marlin 795 and it's a blast. Clip fed, semi auto. Weighs next to nothing, compact, narrow for folks with small hands, synthetic stock. Far more accurate than I am. Shoots about 2"-3" at 50 with me pulling the trigger. Someone who's a good shot can probably do a lot better. I don't see alot of aftermarket mods available for it. But for a handy semi 22, it's a darn good deal (about $110). [url]http://www.marlinfirearms.com/firearms/selfLoading22wClipMag/795.htm[/url]

Here is my favorite of all my .22's. It has taken a remarkable number of game species and i shoot it least once a week. Believe t or not it is more accurate with the suppresor than without when shooting Lapua. Set up on a squirrel and they never hear a thing.

I have a 1977 Browning BAR 22 semi-auto, it is a pretty rifle and has 1"accuracy at 50 yards. It will only shoot jacked bullets though, lead bullets give a ftf every time. I like my 22 mags too. Some day I would like to own a Sako Finnfire Hunter or Varmint, damn are they beautiful. Every time I get the Sako catalog out I start dreaming about owning a couple of their rifles. I would like to buy a Sako 75 Varmint Stainless Laminated in 308 someday also. See I am getting carried away, but you all know how easy it is.

I have a Kimber of Oregon 82 (Left Hand). Pure class and accurate. I have another one that I bought at the final auction that is beautiful; it's being saved until I retire to that life of leasure.
