Any more, me too. I have an H&R Sportster .22 that I have had an absolute ball, hunting squirrels with, this fall. Just for the hellofit, I'm going to buy the same gun in HMR to do some late season hunting with, next fall.

I have an NEF in 22 Mag and 17 HMR... bought each new for $100 a piece...

make a fantastic truck gun...and those little suckers will shoot ANYTHING accurately...

synthetic stocks and cheap Tasco World Class Scopes on top of them...not much can hurt them or go wrong...

arent we supposed to love all our children equally? grin

kinda depends on what i'm doing & how i'm hunting...the 452 is more trim & light & stock dimensions fit me better. trigger is good after some mods, and accuracy is excellent. if i'm walking much i like it.

The kimber is heavier & holds steadier, also has a great trigger, and is obscenely accurate, as in 100 yard head shots if i'm not wobbling around, if i plan on taking a stand in open areas & doing the sitting game i pack it.
