Rimfire Roundup #7

Welcome to this week's Rimfire Roundup! Lots of interesting posts this week on a variety of topics.

We'll start out with a well written post on Youths and Guns by Fug at Fugger Nutter. He covers gun selection, caliber selection, safety, and a lot more.

If you are planning to introduce some kids to shooting, you might want to give this a careful reading.

Kurt from A Train Wreck in Maxwell took Karen out to the dry creekbed of Hondo Creek on Saturday for a little shooting with his Taurus .22 revolver. From his post of the targets and his write-up, it sounds like thay had a good time. Here's the story.

Maybe we can get a full range report and review on the Taurus one of these days!

A while back, Xavier at Xavier Thoughts had established a Smith & Wesson K-22 as his next Holy Grail Gun. Technically, a K-22 is a pre-1957 gun, a K framed .22 caliber Smith & Wesson without a model number.

He finally found the one he's been looking for, and at a price you won't believe!

Alan at Blognomicon has now done a much more thorough review on the Walther P22. The P22 is designed to be nearly identical to, although smaller than Walther's P99 (a 9mm or .40 S&W gun).

Kim at The Other Side of Kim is missing having a really accurate .22 rifle, and he's narrowed it down a bit as to what he wants to get to fill that hole in his gun safe. One of his choices is a Remington 504-T. You'll have to read his post to see what other rifles, in his opinion, fill the bill!

When Dan from Life in the Great Midwest went into a local gun shop looking for a new .22 rifle, he was treated as if he was intruding into someone's private club, and he left. He ended up at Gander Mountain, where they actually seemed to appreciate him as a potential customer.

He bought a Ruger Model 77 in .22 Long Rifle with the stainless steel barrel, and he loves it. Check out his post which includes a range report and review of this beauty!

There's just something about those laminated stocks......

Speaking of Ruger rimfire rifles, Jeff at Alphecca has a short post about the banana clips from Butler Creek for the 10/22 Ruger rifles.

Butler Creek 25 Round Magazine for the Ruger 10/22.

That's it for this week! Deadline for the next Rimfire Roundup is next Tuesday night, so send in those rimfire links!
