New forum for those of us shooting rim jobs. The price of .22 really does bring the crowd. :thumbsup:

Rim fire has always been popular. Now that it's the cheapest to shoot even more popular.

Love that rimfire. Pretty much all I shoot, except 12 gauge and the occasional 7.62x54R.

Me too :eek: That is how I got both of my AR lowers to be buttery smooth. Several thousand rounds fired on each lower, now that was cheaper and easier then using my 5.56 upper and rounds :D

I seriously would conider selling my expensive out of this world LWRC M6A2 SRT GPU and getting a DI 5.56 upper and a Sig 522 rifle as well. Right now I have just over 10K rounds of .22LR stored in my room, aka the Armory :p

Went to the range last week. Shot my M1 Carbine about 50 rounds, then switched to the Ruger 10/22 the rest of the time.

I just picked up a 10/22 that is about 20 years old. It needs a little work to be reliable/accurate but it is a fun gun.

There has GOT to be a better way to phrase that.

I shoot my Ruger Mark III more than any of my other handguns, and I just purchased a Savage 93R17. I can't wait to throw a scope on it and go blow up some ground squirrels!

I can actually afford to go to the range again with my rimfire! I hate to say it but I don't want to shoot my 9mm as I am afraid I won't be able to replace the ammo! :rolleyes:

And I am not getting up at 6am just to stalk my local WW....

Few reasons I am hooked on Rimfire.

1. cheap to shoot.

2. When I go shooting they only let you take a target out 200 yards. 200 yards with my 700pss gets boring pretty quickly.

3. All the same principles are involved with long range shooting. It is just more of a challenge.

.22 are great fun when you have an indoor rage to shoot at most of the time you can get creative on how you want to shoot, smiley face is a great way for a person to be able to consentrate on shot placement..
