.22 Revolver Roundup!

Git along, little plinkies.... I should've aligned them with the quilt pattern! (That pattern has a name, do you recognize it?)

Here's the H&R 622 and holster rig in all its glory: Snazzy!

The Colt Police Positive Target .22 is positively gracile alongside the Iver Johnson and High Standard .22s:(All a bit blurry, hurried snapshots -- I need sunlight to make better photos and there wasn't time.)

Love this post. I have 2 H&R 922s and a H&R 999 Sportsman.
As for the quilt...Double Wedding Ring?

On the pattern, bingo!

I used to have an old H&R 9 shot and an IJ 8 Shot many years ago. I'm still kicking myself to this day I ever sold them.

Yours look very nice.

I know this is off topic, but saw this on NBC and thought it was hilarious, given all the recent hoopla and your various posts about topic in past.

Context: Comment made in response to police shooting in NY at Empir State Bldg by NY Mayor Takeyourrightsaway -

Mayor Michael Bloomberg said, "If somebody pointed a gun at you, and you had a gun in your pocket, what would you do?"

Which in one short sentence refutes EVERYTHING he purports to stand for/believe/force upon everyone else. What a quisling piece of kaka!

Nice to meet you at blogmeet by-the-by....

If all of that and a large box of ammo isn't a days worth of fun, I don't know fun.

Nice collection, and cheap to shoot too!

Double-Wedding Ring. If a single woman sleeps under it, she'll be an old maid. Or so kitchen-table legend has it.

Wow. I have met someone with more .22LR revolvers than me... Very nice, Roberta!

Jay G: Wow!

I love those top-break rimfires. Everytime I see one for sale I'm 'this' close to getting it.

Roberta X said...

They really are fun -- and the conventional ones are not far behind.

My experience with the Iver Johnson has been an eye-opener -- before gunsmith repair, it was an average gun, a "meh." Now it's a *treat* to shoot!

(BTW, to Dale W: an illuminating interview indeed. Bloomie's degree of doublethink is simply staggering!)

The top right revolver, the smallest one, what is that? A budy of mine bought one at an auction and knows nothing about it.

Roberta X said...

It's an H&R Young America, made in the 19th Century and not rated for modern ammo. I have shot it with .22 Colibri, very low-pressure loads, and it works just fine.
There's a little more about it at this post.
