My Annie's and S&W K22's and S&W Mod. 41's.

Win 9422 and 9422M for "walk about" guns.

The Marlin 39A & M gets shot a lot also.

Of course, the S&W Mod 63 is always with me.

Same here. It is the gun I learned to hunt with as a child. My father gave it to my brother, and the Browning A5 came to me.
The savage 24 or my Glenfield model 60 .22lr would be my small game choice.

the only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker, is observation. all the same data is present for both. The rest, is understanding what you're seeing.

Had two or three of those myself. It was kind of like a rite of passage in my neck of the woods. The only gun stores were Sears & Western Auto.

Very popular guns, they made more than 12 million of them. Mine is the higher capacity version. I still have the original Glenfield scope, but replaced it due to no longer being able to see much through it, except in bright light.

been really enjoying my win 320. 2-7 leupold rimfire on it. More accurate than my cz 455. Get compliments on it every time I take it out.

I haven't used it for hunting yet, but I did just get a blow dart gun that I want to try out this fall

That was a sleeper that few people even knew about. Great rifle.

My favorite is my new model T Bolt in .22 LR

Part of the beauty of small game hunting is the ability to do it with pretty much whatever you have handy. Rimfire, shottie, air rifle, CF, rock lock, whatever. The seasons are so long, you can use them all in turn. :-)

I really like my 22s.
I have several. Some with scopes and some without.
I like the iron sights under clear skies but when it's cloudy I use one with a scope.

Bravo

A Westley-Richards Martini in originally .310. Now my own "wildkitten cartridge" best described as an 8mm/.32-20. 125 gr wheelweight semi flatpoint mold with 3.5 gr of Red Dot or Bullseye for 970 fps. Home built California sights with a 150 yd folding leaf. This Cadet, I have reason to believe, by external pitting was stored on the floor of the English Channel for many years before it found it's way to me. But, the bore is more than acceptable, possibly because of the beeswax lube used back in the day. Pressed back into service during the great rimfire panic a few years ago, I found it far exceeding the .22 in performance past 100 yard mark, generally stopping any jackrabbit charge, and once or twice saving my life when charged by a tender young
grouse.


guilty of white privilege : for 55 years I had the privilege to get up and go to work...to help feed the folks that wanted to sleep in.

Love the M39 pic... nice job on that.


Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.
