Favorite bolt gun, Cooper with Kahles 2-7 rimfire scope.

Hard to beat for quality and performance.

Agree completely. Perfection.

My favorite lever gun. This one with a VX-2 3-9x40 with CDS set up for 38 gr. Federal Game Shok, 50 yd zero. This gun has a trigger stop and near match grade trigger. Fajan stock and my attempt at checkering as a youngster. Rosewood grip cap.

And, then there's my 29" barreled .22LR CZ 2500 with Leupold Compact 3-9x33 A/O EFR with Timney trigger.

Long barrel is really quiet without can. Not as accurate as the Cooper, but close.

Ugly wood. Looks better painted.

1953 birthday gift from Mom and Dad.
The small game has been about everything from barn flies on the barn door to whitetail buck. Along with other game has been grasshoppers in the field, frogs, starlings, pigeons, partridges, squirrels, chipmunks, snowshoe rabbits, fox, tame rabbits, raccoons, fisher, cats, cows (beefers), bats, woodchucks, bees (in the nest), chickens, snakes, weasel, crows, chicken hawke, owl, barn swallows, trout, muskrats, beaver, a goat. Probably other species that I don't remember. My parents were not aware of everything this farm boy shot. For about two years I was shooting about a brick per month. Most of the above were before I turned 16.

Usually a .22 bolt gun but next squirrel season I'd like to get my Henry H001 .22 lever gun out. Been having a lot of fun with it and it hasn't been hunting yet.

i have a Ruger 77-22 S.S. with that weird black plastic stock,that makes it look like a toy rifle. but i like to use this rifle it doesn`t rust easy and i have 3 rotary 10-shot clips for it so it loads and unloads very easy.the other reason is i don`t want to wreck my Marlin 39A`s those are just used with tender lovin care.

Not much here on the Winchester 9422. I have never owned or even handled a Marlin 39.

How do the two compare?

9422 much smoother, and less trouble... I have shot 39's all my life, still have two.. They are great, the 94 is awesome..

I just am finishing up my small game 10/22 project. It’s a 10/22 sporter deluxe with the 22” stainless barrel, BX trigger group, and a Leupold 4X rimfire scope. I’ll post some pics when I get it finished up.


Last wish? I wish... you had... more time.
