Ever since .22s were manufactured decades ago, they have became a popular caliber, and good investment. Uses ranging from small game hunting, plinking, and varmint killing, have landed this caliber much respect. I personally love my Winchester Wildcat .22LR, and it has been a very reliable rifle since I received it. A .22 rifle can easily be made into an extremely accurate gun with the addition of a good scope, and a caring owner. Like all calibers and guns, a .22 requires cleaning. But please share your opinions of this famous caliber. Who knows, it may just save your life one day.
