    I'm on vacation at Bethany Beach MD and, as I always do, went to check prices of ammo at Walmart. I asked the manager about .22 and he told me starting Monday (Aug 22nd 2016) that Walmart is taking them out of the system. Not sure is this is US wide but thought I would give the heads up.

    I'm looking to purchase my first air rifle and I've narrowed it down to a few. Initially I looked at a ton of Benjamin and Crosman rifles but now I've found some Hatsan in the same price range and the air rifle community seems to favor Hatsan. Here's my lists and my concerns with each gun...

    Do any of you own a Henry AR-7? What are your thoughts on it? I was thinking about getting one as a Packable Survival Rifle but wanted to get everyone's opinion. I think it is more packable than the 10/22 but the 10/22 is more versatile (I'm guessing). Thanks

    I happened into the local walmart here; looking for a dowel. Walked thru sporting goods- saw that they were putting .22's on the shelves; the first time I've seen them on the shelves in about 16 months there. Got asked by the female Walmart employee "gosh that was quick; you did get the text ...

    The sad facts about 22 cal ammo are that people are driving the shortage and the prices for it. I was up early Saturday playing cards at a casino in Reno and ended up at walmart early in the AM to get the wife AK ammo for new toy. No surprise there was a line of people waiting 40 mins early...

    So I'm looking into hunting Rock (feral) pigeons in Washington state and I have no clue about where to start. I know I need a hunting liscense and they are year round I don't know of any other regulations. Bag limit? Can I hunt grounded ones with a .22? Recipes? How much meat is on them?

    I was curious if anyone makes their own .22lr rounds our if this would even be an option that you know of? Obviously, they can't be reloaded (rimfire) but what about loaded? I would assume there would be a way to do this with a mold and other supplies. Anybody know of a website/video...

    Was looking for 22LR ammo yesterday and they were of course out of it still. But they had a decent stock of 22 WMR. After watching the capability of the 22 magnum on "Swamp People", I thought I would check out the guns for sale at the Academy. They had a nice little short barrel bolt action 22...

    I've recently purchased a H&K MP5 .22LR at a Cabelas nearby and I was looking at what rail to get for it to mount a holographic sight. Any suggestions? Also I don't want to buy a $100 mount for a $500 gun so try to keep the price reasonable. So what rail and where to get it, would be awesome...

    I recieved this Marlin .22 lever action from a relative, who left it in his attic for decades. Problem is, I can't exactly identify it. He said he got it from his father (it might have passed down from his grandfather but he isn't sure) in the 30's. Most of the Model 1891 Marlins I've seen are...

    Hi everyone, I was just wondering if the ruger 10/22 loses significant power to the action while firing. I'd like to see if anyone has done tests on a ruger 10/22 vs a bolt or lever action to see if the difference is significant. Given the low power of a .22 lr round, I would imagine the way the...

    hey all. My dad has had a Remington 514 .22 rifle in his closet for the longest time. As far as I know it hasn't been shot for over 20 years. I tried cleaning it up and shooting it today, but it wouldn't fire. There would be a click as if it were being dry fired, but the round wouldn't go off. I...

    In my limited research, I've found that the .22 & the 12GA are the two most common guns discussed as survival tools. I'm going to pick up a Mossberg 500 without a doubt. It's a no-brainer to have one in the home and out in the sticks. I understand that a 12GA can be converted to shoot .22...

    hey guys i had an idea. on my various car/vehicle forums people will post build threads to get advice and track their personal advancement and crap like that. so i figure why not make a "personal prep" thread. this will cover everything i have done and plan to do in the immediate future. feel...

    Hey, I'm getting my first gun soon and have decided on starting with a .22. I have narrowed it down to three and need some input. I have shot them at a range but have no clue how they work in the field. I've also shot a 10/22 but am not that fond of it. What do you think?

    Hello Everyone! I have a question regarding my marlin 60. Long story short it keeps jamming. I just did the feedthroat, as well as the lifter, lifter/ejector spring, and recoil spring. It feeds the rounds fine, fires properly, but is not ejecting them properly. The shells either stay in the...

    So I finally purchased my first firearm.. a Marlin 795 .22 LR! I'm not a total newb (just a partial newb ;)) when it comes to shooting, but I've never owned my own firearm.. usually would just snag one of dad's for the day. Been to to range twice so far and shot about 400 rounds total through...

    Just wondering if anyone else does this. What rounds do you use? What are your tactics?
