The Arsenal of Fun: a Guide to .22-caliber Firearms for Target Shooting Fun

When you read today's gun magazines, you'll see endless numbers of firearms for personal defense. While they have their place, shooting is a recreational sport and pastime. If you don't have firearms just for fun, you are missing out.

2. Pump-Action .22 Carbine - Once upon a time, carnivals and fairs had shooting galleries where customers would shoot at targets with pump-action rifles firing .22 caliber short rounds. Today you can still find pump action .22 caliber rifles like the Henry Pump-Action Octagon rifle and the discontinued Taurus Model 62 Pump-Action .22 Carbine at gun shops. A pump-action rifle is fun to shoot and more involving to shooters than modern semi-automatic rifles.

3. Lever-Action .22 Carbine - The legends and lore of the Old West are closely connected to America's heritage of firearms ownership. Due to its appearance in hundreds of western movies, the Winchester 1892 rifle is an iconic old west firearm. Henry Repeating Arms makes a wonderful .22 Lever Action rifle that is faithful to the classic Winchester in many respects. Marlin's Model 39A is a classic lever action .22 rifle in its own right.

4. Single-Action .22 Revolver - The lever action rifle is only half of the Old West equation. A single-action revolver completes the cowboy action ensemble. Ruger makes highly respected cowboy-action revolvers. A shooter can't go wrong with the classic Ruger Bearcat or adjustable sighted Ruger Single-Six Convertible. Both revolvers provide the classic six-gun feel in a package that is economical to shoot. The convertible Ruger Single-Six allows shooters to switch between .22 long rifle and more powerful .22 Magnum calibers.

So, take a deep breath, don't worry about the end of the world as we know it (TEOTWAWKI), and relax about the zombies, you can go shooting just for fun!
