    My first .22lr, surprising since I have acquired a bunch of other calibers first.

    Winchester model 190 tube mag semi auto. Holds 14+1. My guess was this leaned in the corner of someone's garage and shot pests. The barrel has some rust, the rear sight is smashed and missing the elevator, the front sight is chipped, and when I acquired it the barrel was loose. That being said, the bore was nice and bright and didn't look damaged. Even with the barrel loose, it still shot 5 rounds and cycled.

    Tightened the barrel nut, cleaned it out, and have a new factory rear sight and a Lyman front sight on their way from Numrich.

    Bought it at a yard sale with those issues for $40. Sights were around $24 shipped, more than half the price of the gun lol. Hopefully it will be a good little beater/plinker. I was thinking about flipping it but I like how it handles and feels and shoots. Also, everyone needs a .22lr so I guess it stays. Also, it is my first Winchester.

    thanks guys, I can't wait til that box from Numrich shows up so I can go sight her in. I also found out it will hold 16+1. Now I am wishing I had picked up a couple bricks when I had the opportunity...oh well. edit: in case anyone cares it has a 19-1/4" barrel, it is sort of a bull barrel, 5/8" diameter. It is probably just to allow all of the dovetail cuts (3) in the barrel alone.

    Picked up the new Ruger Tactical .22. This thing is awesome! Sorry for the poor cellphone pics. Put a Burris fast fire 2 on it for now.

    For plain jane ruggedness and simplicity (and price) the 60 is tough to beat. I love my 10/22 and own both... but I certainly don't hold my nose up to the Marlin. The microgroove barrel and .22LR were a match made in heaven!

    I have never done this, what is it like to have a firearm that made it home unfired ?

    I've never had an opportunity to fire any of my guns prior to purchase. There are two places in town that have their own range and will rent range models to try out, but you can't fire the weapon you're buying until after the purchase is complete. The rest of the shops around here don't even have that option. It's great that you're able to do that oli, but many of us have never had that option...

    Ah, so you just head to the range from the store then.

    ...you'll have to excuse me, I'm a little slow... :confused:
