    Gosh, I can't pick one. I had a first model 1933 Woodsman "Sport" that was awfully nice. A PP/S in .22. Four or five Rugers of various MKs, from '53 to '09. A '58 S&W mod 18. Then there are the rifles. The 10/22 or the Marlin 60, hard choice, but the 10/22 wins that one. TJ

    I have four .22 rifles and I'd say that my favorite is my Rossi Gallery gun, it's great for target shooting and for small game hunting.

    My vote would be for the Marlin 60. I learned how to shoot with it and it would be the last .22 I ever parted with.

    It was my Remington 597 but that turned out to be a piece of crap. :( So I am going to have to go with my Marlin 981ts for sure.

    Two ways to deal with the trigger on a Marlin 60.

    DIP Drop-in adjustable target trigger.
    http://www.diproductsinc.com/Products.aspx?CAT=3603
    If you buy their trigger guard, you get to use the bigger 3/8" version :)

    Or go here, read this thread, and it'll show you every possible way to manually adjsut the trigger.
    Read it ALL the way to the end, as some of the Mods were proven to be not as effective as later mods.
    (I.E., the JB Weld mod because the Drilled/Tapped 6/32" setscrew mod)
    http://www.rimfirecentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=143780

    Frankly, it's FAR easier to buy the Drop-in types ;)
    Even easier if you get the DIP Trigger Guard & 3/8" Target Trigger,
    it includes a pre-drilled hole for an over-travel screw.

    Best money you will EVER spend on a Marlin semi-auto :D

    Can you say..."CZ EATER" ?? :D
    I knew you could ;)

    I consider the .22 one of the most deadly weapons ever made, if you stick with solid lead slugs and stay away from hollow points. I have put down a full grown braferd bull with one shot to the head at 50 feet. that was through a henry explorer , you know the survival rifle with the barrel that unscrews and stores in the stock. I guess its my favorite. but my remington nylon 66 runs a close second.

    My Winchester 52B with a 20X Unertl. It shoots so good it gets boring. I like my Winchester 75 for off hand stuff and betting people $$.

    Ruger SR22. With after market heavy barrel and any half decent scope.
    Amazingly accurate. A little heavy though.

    Winchester Model 67. It was my first .22 and I love it. I still shoot it every chance I get.

    favorite is a savage 63, a single shot bolt...but my most used is a henry survival, because it's the easiest to carry and pack.

    I would hacve to say that my winchester model 61 takes this one. It is fun to shoot, and it has never been owned by anybody outside of my family.
