At 25 yards, even the new protégés were shooting “minute of bunny” …after they got the hang of it. Best of all, .22 LR ammunition is affordable. We shot for a couple of hours and still had well over 200 rounds left over.
The Austrian ISSC M22 self-loading pistol is a fun gun that resembles the world’s most popular police pistol, the Glock. The pistol is affordable at little more than the price of a .22 conversion unit for the Glock pistol and has good features including a Lothar Walther barrel.

The introduction of a new bolt-action .22 is a continuation of the classic American .22 caliber sporter. Despite the introduction of modern self-loading rifles, the Ruger American Rimfire has its place, primarily because the Ruger American Rimfire is the stablemate to the world’s most popular .22 caliber rifle, the Ruger 10/22.

The folks at Henry Repeating Arms Company made another gun to be proud of with the Small Game Carbine, chambered in .22 Magnum. This lever-action rifle delivers on several levels. The gun is handsome and plain, reminiscent of a grandpa’s pocket knife. There’s no pizzazz, as well as nothing unappealing in its appearance. It’s a utilitarian tool, and a perfect example of form following function.
After the acquisition of the Benjamin line, Crosman maintained the Benjamin line as its premium line marketed to select retailers. There are air rifles, and then there is the Trail NP XL 1100, which is Crosman’s top of the line air rifle. The fit and feel is excellent from the laser logoed hardwood checkered thumbhole Monte Carlo-style stock to the perfectly blued steel. However, the heart of every worthy review is the performance.
Contrary to what you may see in a lot of the popular firearms media these days, the revolver as a self-defense tool is not dead. In fact, there are quite a few options available for those seeking a revolver for home defense, concealed carry, or recreational shooting.
