Well ther is more rabbit/squirrel left with a solid hit. Cheaper and quieter. That said I hardly shoot my 22 rifles anymore with the exception of the occasional silhouette matches.

Do you fart? Of course I still shoot 22’s. It is what people do! If I shot 100 rounds a day I’d probably would be low on ammo in 2050👍🏼😁
Maybe I should sell some and buy some property?

A .22 LR has worked just fine for me for many years. Still does. I do not have a .17.

I have owned some pretty good shooting 22 rifles and have yet to own one that can shoot groups as tight at 100 yards as a cheap Savage 9317.

I should shoot more but living in western Oregon there's not much call for a 22 LR. Living in the desert everything is game, but I don't get over east much.

With That kind of money you could wander while you wonder...

I’ve got enough .22 to last me till I die. Ben can sell the rest after my funeral.
I love plinking, and I like hunting squirrels with it. I was never one for hoarding, but a few years ago, I had to go easy on my supplies.
I learned my lesson, and when things eased up, I bought enough to last.
Same with primers, powder, and Bullets.
Fool me once, shame on you....

Still shoot the 10-22 and the Winchester auto some.

This moment i am waiting for the weather to get stable some so i can go shoot the Winchester 1885 in 17 HM2 i got at the end of last year.

Ammo can still be found and last i bought was around 10 bucks.

With a 12 year old, it's what we're shooting the most.

I saw the salad days for what they were and stocked up a few years ago.

Those standard velocity blue box shoot great.

The hot rod stingers and anything over 1400fps , open up groups
