Went shooting with a friend today. He took a 5.56mm AR, and I took my CMMG Quebec-A and my Ruger 10/22. He shot about $90 worth of ammo, (reloads purchased from gun show) and I shot about $13 worth. I love my .22s. :supergrin:

Same reason I love my .22 I just got 2k rounds of 22 ammo a few weeks ago. Cost me like 60 bucks shipped. Getting that in 9mm or 38special would cost me atleast 300-500dollars easy.

I was a die hard "shoot what you carry" guy for many years. It wasn't 'till I used some one's Advantage Arms kit on a Glock that I started thinking about .22.

Now I start all my shooting and training sessions with the AA kit. Still finish with my carry ammo but lots of bad habits can be cheaply addressed with the .22 on the same pistol.

I can afford to shoot centerfire ammo because I reload.
That said, I do enjoy shooting a .22.

price
fun factor
versatility - tacticool, many pistol and rifle choices, target, varmint control, plinking and if all else fails self defense

Went out to the pit yesterday with 200 rounds of 9mm for my 34 and a 525-pack for the Buck Mark. There were a few left in the bottom when I got home...

If you have to explain why we love shooting 22's...they will never understand.

This morning as a matter of fact, I was shooting an old single shot Springfield Model 82. My buddy shooting a similar Savage single shot. We split a 50 round box of Federal (something off the shelf) at steel swingers set out at 50 yards. Two steel plates; 2.5" circle and 4.5" circle. Fresh red paint and a green (boat carpet) draped behind the plates for contrast.

Today was my day but last week Bob was the victor.

You know your having fun when your lobbing little 22 pills 300 yards at a rifle silhouette target. Bang, wait, tink, smile.

Do you have any pictures of 22 steel targets you would be willing to share?

I also hang clay targets from sure-site hanges on a rope. I have fun and it's fun teaching kids to shoot.

WOW !!! I haven't seen $10.87 price for 550 rd brick in 3 or 4 years ! My Walmart charges closer to $20 a brick. What brand ? Was this a sale price ?

Ditto that my WASR 22 & 2 AKT-98s (Romanian Rimfire AKMs) have all the evil features like Sidefolder,detachable mags, Bayo lugs, PGs ... and my J & T Commando AR build does not need BB when CMMG evo conversion unit & mags are used ... And no 922R worries with the AKMs either...

I'll agree with all, that 22's down range are far greater in number than other calibers, but, a range trip for me requires at least two other calibers being fired alongside the inexpensive 22. Usually a center fire rifle, and a center fire pistol, or two different pistol calibers. Like you all have said though, a bang is a bang, and 22's are certainly the cheapest bang for your buck.
