What's need go to do,So last weekend the fun show was in town again, the last until New Years, and we went up to see what there was to see. I found something I've been kind of looking for, for a while. A nice looking stainless .22LR revolver.

the other day,
500 rounds in a day in a .45 will leave your hands feeling like you've been hitting a heavy bag. 500 rounds in a plastic nine will still leave you knowing that you've been shooting when you pick up your utensils at dinner that night. 500 rounds of .22 will have you asking "Is that all we brought? Who wants to run to WalMart for more?"22LR pistols like the Walther P22, and the Sig Mosquito are very popular, and during the extreme ammo shortage of '09, I got a S&W 22A pistol - the reason for the "what's need got to do with it?" song parody. It's just a ton of fun to shoot - well balanced, aims very naturally for me, just a lot of fun. I set my targets back about as far as the range allows, and I could empty a box of 500. While the little Smith will shoot pretty much all brands of modern, supersonic 22LR ammo, I have come across some that won't cycle properly (some old Remington Thunderbolt lead RN an old timer sold me). I suspect that the revolver will be quite a bit less fussy with it, and even allow subsonic ammo. Hopefully we'll see on Sunday.
