Thread: Does it Make Sense to Get a .22 Pistol?

    I hit the range with a friend this weekend who had the same kit for his Sig. We had a blast for half the price of shooting 9mm all day.

I'm not sure if I should just shoot what I carry or would also shooting more of the .22 help with my overall abilities even though it has less recoil and would be a different trigger feel.
    Oh yeah! They are a ton of fun and make great small game weapons. I love my Ruger MkIII Hunter.

  4. I recently sold my Glock 26 (still have my G19)...I now have MY conversion kit listed here on this forum (Advantage Arms kit).

    They are a lot of fun - especially when you use the same gun frame as you normally do. and 22 ammo is SO much cheaper to shoot.

    Shooting a .22 pistol is an excellent way to improve your proficiency with a handgun. The basics are the same for nearly all handguns. Ammunition is very affordable and the .22 is easy on the body and will help new shooters to learn to avoid accuracy killers like jerking the trigger and flinching. The weight and trigger pull may not be the same, but the mechanics are. The .22 is also a great survival tool tool, compact, light weight, accurate, and you can easily carry 10 times more ammunition. While the .22 is not the best choice for a defensive weapon, if I could only own one handgun it would be a .22 LR.

    I agree with everybody else, .22's are great tools for learning to shoot, are great to shoot in their own right, and are great fun to shoot.
    War to the Knife, Knife to the hilt.
    If we don't want to live in a trashy area, we all have to be willing to help pick up the trash.

  7. Trigger time is trigger time and the more you pull the trigger, the better you can get.

    Dry fire practice is great but it doesn't replace burning powder. Not only are they cheap to shoot but the .22 round is ACCURATE. If you miss with a .22, it's YOUR fault.

    There is nothing better for honing skills than more trigger time. Trigger time w/ centerfire=$$$... 22LR pistols and rifles are a great way to get training, technique, and fun all mixed into an inexpensive range trip... Trigger time w/ 22LR=

    Send the target all the way out 25yds and try shooting small groups... Keeps me busy for a while...
    You can give peace a chance alright..

    I'll seek cover in case it goes badly..

    Practice. Cheep ammo. If you have children who are younger once you find they are old enough and responsible enough you can teach them easier and cheaper. And. Again practice without going broke. 1000 rounds for 10$ or 100 for 20$

    Thumbs up Rimfire Shooting

    And they were bringing rimfire shooters to his shooting range that he might let them get a lane on his rifle range, and the disciples rebuked them. But when Jesus saw it, he was indignant and said to them, "Let the rimfire shooters come to me and set up in an empty lane on my shooting range; do not hinder them, for to such belongs at the gunclub of God. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not practice at my rifle range like these rimfire shooters shall not become a member of the gunclub of God." And he took them in his arms and blessed them, and gave them a twenty percent off coupon for their next purchase at Cabelas.
