    Wife picked this up to carry when tracking with her dogs (deer tracking)..for exposure training, maybe snakes in the summer, and mostly as an all-season-legal dispatch weapon. Seemed to fit the bill...eating anything you feed it and not “too nice” to carry in snake and gator infested swamps.

    Must admit, I’ve fallen in love with the little guy. Son has been carrying on the trap line for a couple weeks over break. It’s quickly becoming an everyday essential...like a wallet, keys and pocket knife. Need to grab another, or maybe two. Maybe one for each vehicle. We’ll see.

    Two nice Ruger .22's pictured above. The Wrangler seem to be liked by most folks that have bought one. Have never seen any negative comments.

    That "three screw" early Single Six looks really nice!

    Have a few .22's here also...autos & revolvers.

    Here are the revolvers...

    Colt Official Police .22 from 1937

    [​IMG]

    Colt New Frontier .22 from 1974 if my memory is right

    [​IMG]

    early Charter Arms Pathfinder .22

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    North American Arms .22

    [​IMG]

    Not a revolver but not an auto either so I'll just put it here.

    High Standard .22 magnum derringer

    I’ve read that Ruger cheapened this model to compete with the Heritage revolvers. If that’s the case, they knocked it out of the park, IMO.

    You sure have some nice irons :)

    I prefer the 42 rnd version in 5.56....even like the old 50 rndr I found for mini thirty. Although, majority of my 5.56 are 30 rnd. Contemplating buying the 100 rnd drums, but really think it's a bit excessive. All that's needed is a double tap.:love:

    That looks like a fun one. Always wanted a Mark 3, that bull barrel was sharp. Great hog gun.

    30rds for business, drums for pleasure.
