She started getting frustrated with multiple FTEs using Federal "Premium" Target 40 grain 1080 fps ammo.

Switched her to Winchester 36 grain 1280 fps hollow points and all was right with the world.

Next purchase is a threaded barrel to kick off the NFA trust. Cabela's has them on sale:

6 yr old thread, but i love 22lr and most of my collection is 22lr I have 3 Ruger Mk IIs 2 Wranglers < and a 1963 Single six convertable. My MK II Govt Target is the most accurate, second my MK II slabside. but the most accurate 22 pistol ive ever shot was a S&W 41 and S&W A22 but it was a Jamomatic,, i tried everything.. no use.. sold it to buy the MK II Govt Target. no regrets. The Rugers eat anything i feed them and very accurate. It gets easier to clean once you put them back together a few times.

Still love my Sig 1911-22 bought almost 7 years ago. Works best with mini-mags.

My Mom was going through some old paperwork and found the receipt for my S&W Mod. 17 .22cal.

July of 1976 from Bart's Sports World in Glen Burnie......at a screamingly expensive price of $165 out the door!!!!!

It was a H.S. Graduation Present......

Not much beats a tiny braced/SBR running suppressed. Picked up a CP33 and really like it, marvel of engineering, and fun as hell. Hard to pick a favorite, but almost always throw one of these 4 and a rimfire can in my range bag.

Wow. I really need to get on purchasing a suppressor. How do you like the suppressor on your .22LR? What brand do you use?

I have a Dead Air Mask and Rugged Oculus. 2 of the best out now, and would definitely recommend them. The Mask is a little smaller/lighter at 5.1" and 6.6oz, Ti tube/steel mount&baffles, really quiet, no first round pop, easy to break down and clean, and all around awesome can. The only real downside is that the mount can unscrew from the tube when removing the can unless you crank down on the end cap, is a PITA when it happens on something like my AR22 where it's tucked under the rail. The Oculus is 5.25" and 6.9oz, all steel, a little FRP, slightly louder, but deeper tone, comes apart to clean just as easy. It's main feature is the modular design, the front 1/2 of the tube can come off leaving you with a tiny 3.25" 4.3oz mini suppressor. It will make most any pistol well within hearing safe limits, and is actually pretty quiet on rifles. The only downside is the keys to line up the baffles are smaller and less noticeable than the mask, they also key into the mount portion of the tube, and it can be tough to turn the stack with a fingertip till it drops into alignment. If it is not keyed in right, the front section won't seat and can come loose, the front baffles aren't keyed to the tube.

Both are full auto rated for 22, both are rated up to 5.7FN, both are backed by great companies and warranties. Both can be easily cleaned by brushing out tubes and dropping baffles in an ultrasonic, both are around $400. Basically if you want modularity and can use the small config, then go for the Oculus, if you want slightly better suppression in a slightly smaller size, and don't need a short config, go for the Mask. I have shot a few, and considered others, but they all had something I didn't like compared to these 2. The SiCo Sparrow is similar in size/weight to the mask, the monocore makes it easy to clean, and won't come loose from the mount, but it is noticeably louder, and has a LOT more FRP. The Optimus micro is a cool can, and can be run on 5.56 with a taper mount. I have a few Griffin cans, and was looking hard at this, but it's really long in 5.56 config, and really heavy on a 22, like 10oz heavy with a DT mount. The Q el camino is skinny and really light, but a bit long, and like the Mask, the mount cn come loose when taking off a host. I was initially looking at the SiCo switchback for a modular can instead of the Oculus. The Switchback is an awesome can, but the thing is a bit more complex, with 5 separate tube/mount/coupler/cap sections to worry about, where the Oculus only unscrews in the middle and the cap, the shortest config isn't hearing safe on handguns, and the mid and full size are longer than the Oculus, but with similar performance. Looked for a Thunderbeast Takedown, Sig SRD22x and Ruger Silent SR, all look like fine cans, but nobody local carries them, haven't shot them, and they are perpetually out of stock.
