Re: What was the first .22 you actually owned?
'65 Colt Colteer semi auto.....worst rifle I ever owned. Cost $60 new. Would only run on Peters HV, had to be cleaned every 100 rounds. First .22s to shoot back in late 50's, Remington gallery pump and numerous bolt actions. Bulk box of ammo was $6 back then and up until about '05 you could still buy a bulk box of .22 ammo for $7.
