    CZ 457 MTR

    This is one of the three **NEW** .22 rimfire rifles I've received from distributors over the last year. The CZ 457 MTR, has been a fantastic performer from the bench with various brands of .22 rimfire ammunition. What I call "mid-level" ammunition brands such as CCI Standard, Wolff Target and...

    Tack-Driver Challenge

    I may have posted this here already, but lets try it again. This is a target that I came up with for those customers of mine and local gun club members who brag to me about their .22 rimfire rifle being such a "tack-driver". OK, here's a target with orange dots the very same diameter as a thumb...

    What Type of Scope Is On Your .22 Rifle?

    I know dang well that most serious .22 rimfire rifle shooters are now using much better scopes than were used back in the mid 50's with those awful 3/4 inch tubes that many of us had then, and now need to pay for expensive eyeglasses because of all the squinting we needed to do to see something...

    Scopes For Your Rimfire Rifles

    I know dang well that most serious .22 rimfire rifle shooters are now using much better scopes than were used back in the mid 50's with those awful 3/4 inch tubes that many of us had then, and now need to pay for expensive eyeglasses because of all the squinting we needed to do to see something...

    Thanks To Whomever.

    I shot off my BIG mouth, so here it is folks, the ".22 Rimfire Forum", and I'll do the first post. I shoot mostly .22 rimfire handguns and rifles, for testing and for fun, so I own a bunch of these. Most of my .22 rimfire pistols are Ruger Mark versions, and I've also worked on a bunch of those...

    It Would Be Interesting If..................

    We had a "dedicated" .22 rimfire forum here. I grew up with my very first rifle being a .22 Winchester Model 67A single shot, and from that very beginning, it grew into an almost fanatical journey to learn the most I could glean from the shooting of this caliber and the rifles that were produced...

    What Makes Anschutz Rifles So Expensive?

    Maybe I just don't get it, but what is so dang GREAT about the Anschutz 1710 and 1712 .22 Long Rifle caliber firearms so blasted expensive. I mean, $2,300.00 to $2,500.00 for a bolt action .22 rifle, that sucker should be able to shoot through the eyeballs of a squirrel at 150 yards. OK, they...

    Ruger Wouldn't Do It

    I'll get a call now and then from an exasperated Ruger Mark pistol owner who tried to get Ruger to do some work on their pistol. Ruger just doesn't do some of the things that an owner will want done. Not even some things that will in no way jeopardize the safety of said firearm. Sending any...

    New Ruger Mark IV Style

    Was perusing the Ruger.com web-site I got a bit excited over a distributor version of the Ruger Mark IV. This newer version is like the Ruger Mark III I looked for, back in the day, for almost 2 years before I finally found one: The funny thing is, Ruger didn't make many of the Mark III...

    More Support For That Heavy Barrel

    One of thee MOST popular .22 rimfire rifles, still currently in production, involves the Ruger 10/22 rifle and all of its iterations involved since 1964. It's one of the most easily worked on firearms available, and there is a plethora of aftermarket parts available to make that rifle into a...

    Your Fondest .22 Rimfire Memories

    Christmas, 1960. For the past whole year, my school buddy and I have been bugging Mom & Dad about the Remington Model 66 .22 rifle that Tom Frye shot over 100,000 hand thrown 2½ inch square blocks using several of those rifles to put one bullet hole into. How GREAT it would be to get one of...

    What Are The Feelings Concerning A

    Rimfire specific forum? Many of us true "Boomers" (1946-1953) had our first smell of .22 rimfire fired gunpowder at an early age, and dang-it, if that isn't something that's harder to shake than the smell of the original Hoppe's #9 solvent. My father was a WWII vet, 54 months serving in the...

    Here in Wisconsin...........

    we had "open carry" long before concealed carry was allowed 6 years ago. Back then, if someone was bold enough to open-carry in public some of the more "gung-ho" cops would ticket that person for being a public nuisance. Finally, Judge John Browne got tired of throwing those cases out of court...

    What Are You Thinking About Concerning The Protection of Your Castle?

    I'm trying to find a "belt fed" Benelli M4 .26 Gauge that will hopefully arrive in my Easter basket. One case each of #00 & #000 buckshot 12 gauge would be nice Madam Bunny. I don't suppose M18 Claymores will ever go on sale at WalMart, or trip-wire flares at the local farm & barn. It's really...

    Lucked Out Last Weekend

    Was down to Scheel's All Sport in Eau Claire, WI a couple of weekends ago. I usually stop in there to look over the trade-in guns to see if maybe there's a rose among the thorns. Then I peruse the ammunition shelves to see if they look like Mother Hubbard's cupboard. One of the store employees...
