I agree 100%. My bug out plan contains .22 pistols and the 10/22. Versatile, quiet, and can be used for defense as well as food....

Besides the practical considerations, .22's are just plain fun....

First of all...what stigma? If there is a negative stigma attached to the .22 caliber, then I guess I'm just clueless as can be lol...so clueless that I just took delivery of yet another .22lr firearm AND have bought even MORE ammo from my fellow GCers and LGSs. I have access to larger calibers as well, so I shoot whatever I feel like shooting on a given day at my choice of venue. 22s are as much fun for me as 50s.

Aside from how cheap the ammo is, and how easy it used to be to find it. Videos like these make me drool about the potential that is available in a little .22lr

and there are plenty more to watch.

JUST DO IT!!!!!......BUWHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!. I can almost guaranfreekintee that you'll have fun shooting just about any .22cal firearm...especially rapid fire at reactive targets...or taking your time for that precision long shot. So relatively inexpensive cheap(er), wholesome, and fun for the whole family!!!! Or by yourself

Pistol, revolver, semi-auto, bolt-action...have it all...do it all

Just say you have 10,000 rounds stocked up, and ask how much they have.

yep the only question is not IF one should get a 22, its which one to get first. I started off with rugers mkI, 10/22 standard stuff and now its exploded.
youwant to know whats more fun than shooting paper at 200 yds?
plinking a bunch of steel targets off beams at 25. . with your kids. and someday grandkids. even gun shy liberals will be tempted to pick one up and try their hand. You wouldn't believe how much fear has been brainwashed into them by the media, and the idea of the evil gun gets reversed every time they pull the trigger.

One ten round magazine of .22= .50 cents

One ten round magazine of .308 = $5 to $15

Last person I took shooting had so much fun shooting my ar 22 I am helping them build one.

Default My name is, .....and Im addicted to small caliber joy..

I too love .22.


For one, you can practice your shooting technique, of breath cycle, concentration, standing, kneeling and prone position and trigger control.


And it's cheaper to shoot.


All that to prep for the big rifle. But the smaller calibers, are MUCH more joyful for me to shoot


So people don't understand that I spen $2500 for a Walter Olympic gun. Or about the same for an airguns.


That's the example of my love of QUALITY small calibers and how important they are in preparation for the larger calibers.

I bought my first gun (a mini-14) when I was 18. I shot the hell out of it and loved every minute of it. A few years later I bought my by second gun, a GP100. Another gun I put thousands of rounds through and loved. Then came another centerfire rifle, and then another centerfire pistol. After firing thousands upon thousands of rounds over the years, I never thought a "wimpy" .22 would be that much fun.

In January I picked up a 10/22 because I wanted to build something somewhat custom, and I wanted something that I could shoot more often due to the rising cost of ammo. I felt that even though it's a puny little cartridge, it still means I can spend time on the range. After building up the gun, I took it out to the range. I felt silly. Not silly because I was "only" shooting a .22, but silly that it took me so long to get a .22. A couple weeks ago I picked up a MKIII hunter, and have been shooting .22 pretty much non-stop.

TL;DR: I neglected the .22 caliber for 13 years. Don't be me. They're awesome.

Here is my 10/22:

And here is a 10 shot group at 25 yards:

I sure as hell can't shoot my mini or my glock like that. I've also shot about 2000 rounds since January. I can't imagine how much that would cost it I wasn't shooting 22.

On trips to our spot in the dessert, The shooters all use 22 RF for the 1st hour, I good warm up. The CF next and then we set up a shotgun thrower . Ruger 10/22 and Ruger MK 11 are favorites. Do a trash clean up and to the slash x for a break .

I sincerely doubt its fake. This guy is well known in the YouTube community, and runs with some other very well known (and extremely honorable) folks too like Dustin Ellermann, 22plinkster, tnoutdoors9, hickok45, Sturmgewehr, etc...
