    Picked up a CMMG .22 conversion kit for AR’s on sale, so I threw it in a PSA AR that was sitting in the safe, and put a Vortex red dot on top and went to the range to see how it worked. Had 4 different flavors of .22 and it cycled everything great. Had so much fun, I came home and got online to see about picking up a bolt action .22. May grab a cheap Savage Mark II FV. As much fun as I have working up loads and shooting tiny groups with my center fire stuff, I think I finally figured out why so many people love shooting .22.

    The Savage mkii FV is a great little rifle. I have the mkii precision and shoot it out past 200 yards. Try different ammos in it. Mine likes lead bullets at close range and CCI Minimag HPs for anything past 50 yards.
    Rimfires are not just short range plinkers. And they are cheap fun.

    My first was a Marlin Mounty 39M circa 1973. It’s still my favorite. Shot a ton of squirrels with that thing growing up.

    My son has a CZ bolt gun that easily will put 10 rounds into a dime at 50 yards.

    Isn't it pretty to think so.

    Longtime fan of 22LR here. Great fun at any range. Never thought of it as a long range round until I watched Kirsten Joy Weiss shooting eggs at 300 yards offhand.

    Well, yeah.....

    I thought EVERYONE had experienced the fun of 22 rimfire shooting...
    That's what everyone started with, in my generation. A box of 50 long rifle cartridges cost 37 cents, and we shot a metric ton of them.

    Part of the fun, once you become familiar with them, (and their annoying characteristic of riccocheting off nearly anything, dirt field, ponds, etc....) is the fact that you can just do a mag dump without worrying about saving brass...

    Get a Taurus TX22 and find out how much fun it is to rapid fire 15 rounds with about zero recoil...

    Had an Ithaca lever when we were kids. If you didn’t wirk the lever right, it would jam. Our neighbor lady had a slide action gallery gun that she’d let us girls shoot.

    That was so smooth and held way over 10 .22.
