    Anschutz Achiever I got as a Christmas present when I was 9.

    Unfortunately, I don't have it anymore and would love to find another one.

    Bob & Wife, Bought a 22/45 Mark III, slab barrel, dot sights, just three weeks ago. My first 22. It was the closets I could come to my Glock 23, night sights. I wanted something that didn't cost me an arm and a leg to shoot at the range. Still love my glock but love the ability to spend the day at the range with the wife shooting as much as we please. Now we are looking to buy another 22 so we don't have to wait to shoot while the other one is having all the fun. Retired in Massachusetts. Any suggestions on our next 22 handgun?? We want reliability, ability to shoot most brands of ammo, ease to field strip and good accuracy. Probably shouldn't say accuracy but ajustable sights, as my ruger has fixed sights that are not set right (going back to the factory). Factory is very good and even paying shipping charges. Send suggestions to: My e-mail please, iamgramma@verizon.net Thanks, Bob

    A Winchester Model 74 and a Remington Model 33. While I did trade the Winchester, I still have the Remington and it shoots beautifully.

    It was a really pretty Ruger Bearcat .22 single six with the (brass)? They had just come out. Paid $37.50, the gun shop across the street sold them for $35 but they were not in stock. I told the guy where I bought it they were cheaper across the street. He said " When I'm out of stock, I sell them for $32.

    Like a idiot I sold it some years later. Wish I had kept it.

    I was given a Savage Model 7 by my Grandfather. He had bought it new in 1938. I received it in 1962. In 2007, I gave it to my oldest Grandson. Hopefully, he will continue the progression.

    I don't know what model or year this gun is. I know it's old and made by Savage.
