If costs were all equal, I would not shoot as much 22lr. Shooting 22lr is fun and cheap. My other guns are fun and expensive (relatively compared to 22lr). If all things were equal, I'd practice and train with the larger calibers since they would most likely be my go to gun in almost all situations.
.22's are fun though and since costs are not equal, I shoot them almost every time I go out.
To answer the original question there's a phrase that my one of my good friends would say to me a lot at the range, "Shoot what you like, Like what you shoot".
