Default Two more 22's

Recently picked-up two more .22's.

The Colt Huntsman 6" I've had for about 3 months and she shoots like a dream. I also got lucky with the George Lawrence holster, it was in the LGS junk box. For 5 bucks & a bit of shoe polish, I scored.

The Browning AS-22 I picked-up just yesterday, I've been in the market for one of these for a while, this one just fell into my lap. It is a Japanese made one tho, I had an opportunity to purchase one of the Belgian made ones at the same shop I got mine. But, the Belgian included the carrying case and was twice the money.

One of my shooting friends had a Huntsman , He used Remington Thunderbolts in his , The Huntsman is a Woodsman with fixed sights. Great pistol you did well.I have a 3rd model Woodsman that I bought 20 years ago.

Gorgeous, nothing like nice wood and blued steel in my book!

Thanks all,

I've shot the Colt but not the Browning, accurate & smoooth to say the least. Now I don't feel so bad about Wifey liberating my MKII.

The Browning is so cool, semi-auto designed by J.Browning over 100 yrs. ago, doesn't have a detachable mag, holds 11 rds. in the tube, & breaks in half.
