If so, do you like it? Shoot it often?

What brand/model?

Yes, I do.
Yes, I like it.
No, I don't.

I have a Taurus Tracker .22, which I will shoot for the first time this weekend. I just bought it Sunday at the gunshow.

I also have a North American Arms mini-.22 with the holster grip. I can't hit shit with it, but damn it's fun !

I really wish I had a K-22

Ruger Single Six .22LR & Magnum. It comes out with me every so often. I do enjoy shooting it, but I would rather have the SW617.
Link Posted: 8/18/2005 3:14:53 PM EDT
Same thing here. Mine is a H&R 999 Sportsman, nine shot. 4" barrel. I really want one with the 6" barrel, but have not been able to find one. I have a "friend" who has one, it needs parts, he doesn't know how to maintain a gun, it's probably rusted solid by now.

I love mine, but don't get to shoot it much.

Yes.

Yes.

Yes.

S&W Mod 63.

Not my picture, but this is almost EXACTLY the same pistol I have, to include the grips. Great little wheelgun, light and handy, and PERFECT for training new shooters on, especially those with small hands.

Smith 617 set up with a Leupold scope for squirrel and bunny hunting and yes, I shoot it frequently...

Link Posted: 8/18/2005 3:18:40 PM EDT
Right now I have a Ruger Single Six in stainless with a 4 5/8" barrel and I just bought an old 5 screw Smith K22 with a 4" barrel. I also have two Ruger 22 autos, both skinny barrels, in 4" and 6". I can say without reservation that the 22 pistol is the most enjoyable gun you can own. Low cost ammo, no recoil, no handloading. Some guns, like the AR15, are for bad times. You train with them like you train to do CPR or other emergency actions. A 22 pistol is a good times, relaxation gun. You need one.
Link Posted: 8/18/2005 3:21:38 PM EDT
another single six. I take it out occasionally , probably will more now due to the fact I bought a Vaquero .44 MAG.
Link Posted: 8/18/2005 3:26:50 PM EDT
no but i want one.
Link Posted: 8/18/2005 3:28:41 PM EDT
I have a German single-action Cowboy style clone. Have only shot Colibris with it so far. It seems pretty accurate.

This is my answer as well.
Link Posted: 8/18/2005 3:36:28 PM EDT
Thanks for the responses, all. That's the info I'm wanting...I have an automatic, and I've had the itch lately to add a .22 revolver to the collection. There's a lot of options, especially with frame size & barrel length/heaviness, to consider.

I just don't want a regret down the road a la "I like my .22, but wish I had gotten a different one way back in '05"
Link Posted: 8/18/2005 3:42:14 PM EDT
I just remembered--I also have my grandfather's Colt .22 Frontier Scout. I never shoot that one, because it's got sentimental value and I don't want to trash it.

(also not my picture)

My dad gave me a six-inch Smith & Wesson K-22 for my eighth grade graduation present many years ago! Was my first handgun, still have it, really like it but rarely shoot it. (Hate cleaning all those chambers in wheel guns.)
Link Posted: 8/18/2005 3:54:30 PM EDT
I have a blued Colt Diamondback 6" BBL. Looks like a little miniture Python. I shoot it as often as I can. Great shooting gun. This gun is semi-collectible because there wasn't that many that was made.

Your dad rules.

Mine got me a 10/22 in 6th grade. I'll hang onto it forever.

A Ruger Bearcat is my only .22 wheel. I don't take it out very
often, but when I do I enjoy it.

One day I will own a nice blued S&W .22 wheelgun. I am quite fond of them.

Though I am tickled pink with my Ruger MK-II. It is a superb firearm, and is far more accurate than I am. (Which is saying something...)

Example? I used it to shoot the primer out of an old 20 guage shell at 20 yards. With el-cheapo ammo to boot. (It is completely reliable with ALL .22 ammo.)

Not bad.
Link Posted: 8/18/2005 4:17:22 PM EDT
High Standard Sentinel. 9 shot 4 inch barrel, adjustable sites. Nice action and pretty darn cheap. You can find them for under $125 in decent shape. Great for practice.
Link Posted: 8/18/2005 4:18:59 PM EDT
Ruger Bearcat, anytime I walk in the woods it goes with me or the S&W 422 does.

I got it used for $50 from a biker. It's worn out and needs some work but shoots well.

Colt Diamondback is my favorite.

Yes , a Taurus. Shoot it every time I go to the range..... because it's FUN ! That Federal ammo is Nasty when it comes to clean-up time.

ruger single six in 22lr

I don't get to the range nearly enough

Why yes I do, and love it (only had it a short time and have fired it on two occasions so far).

Ruger Bearcat. Here it is:

NAA .22 w/.22 mag spare cylinder.
Link Posted: 8/18/2005 7:04:17 PM EDT
A blue, six inch, Taurus model 96. It usually makes the trip to the range with the rest of the pistols and gets a workout most times. I had a 4 5/8 inch Single Six and sold it and never should have. It or a Taurus model 94 would be a good beginners gun.

Strangest wheel gun I had was a Dan Wesson .22 with a four inch barrel. Someone had modified it so it would only shoot double action. It was a sweet shooter but a buddy wanted it more than I did and I sold it to him. It was a well crafted beautiful piece.

H&R in .22lr and .22 mag cylinders nifty little pistola actually,well made by the manufacture.
Link Posted: 8/18/2005 7:39:33 PM EDT
I had an stainless S&W kit gun,kinda little and light,carried well but I never shot it real well.
I also had a single six in stainless with the second cylinder in 22mag.Clumsy sucker to carry and it took all day to load/unload it but it shot pretty good,once shot a woodchuck at about 60 yd with a quick snapshot. I was just throwing a shot towards the chuck because I had been playing hide and seek with it for a couple of hours as I was mowing and every time it poked it's head out I didn't have a safe shot at it. I was Bsing with a couple of guys and it poked up its head and I drew down and thru a shot at it and caught it right in the head.The guys thought I was dead eye dick,who was I to tell them it was mostly luck.
I have a real old colt officers model (full size gun) kinda cool but the action is somewhat rough.
The real shooter in the bunch is a 4" S&W 617 10 shot,a newer one all stainless.Some of the early 10 shots had alumimnum clyinders, never thought much of them. My gun had a real nice factory trigger pull right out of the box. Bought it at a local range/gunstore on "S&W" day. Wondered if they were selected by the factory reps on hand to have better pulls or if I just got lucky?
It's allways fun to stick a revolver with cb caps or shorts into somebodys hand and watch the grin spread across their face as they pop away!

S&W M37 light weight kit gun. It is the best survival pistol you could carry light weight, accurate and it works everytime you pull the trigger.
Link Posted: 8/18/2005 9:31:41 PM EDT
I Have a German RG single action in .22 mag. Probably nearly the saem gun as California_Kid. I only bought it because a relative needed money. I've never even shot it once, just cant bring myself to buy a box of .22 mag when I keep a brick of .22lr for the 10/22 and its so much cheaper. I do have a .22lr cylinder marked S&W that I don't even know how I came to own, and it fits and functions in teh gun but I wouldnt trust the chambers to line up with the barrel enought to actually shoot it without knowing for sure.

A 5 screw S&W K-22. Made in the '50's I believe. Purchased it from an older gentleman who was retiring from many years of competitive shooting. It is in almost perfect condition. The ejector rod shows a lot of wear. Do not shoot it often. Figure it will only become more valuable. It is the only firearm I have that that i view that way.

Ruger Single Six .22LR and .22 Mag cylinders .

This is the first handgun I have ever purchased.

All these years later ,and I still shoot it from time to time.

I love this gun.

Unbelievably accurate.

Mine is the old model that lacks a safety,still it's great to
teach new shooters with.

Good rabbit/squirrel gun to.

S&W K-18-4

It's very quiet even for a .22
Link Posted: 8/19/2005 4:02:57 PM EDT
I have a 15 year old S&W 617 w/ 6" barrel.

It is an amazingly well made gun and the factory trigger feels like a custom job.

costs a lot but is worth it.

Shoots 1" groups, NO KIDDING

Yes, Yes, No.
Taurus model 94 SS w/5" barrel, 9 shots, wood grips.
