ISSC M 22 .22 Pistol — As Close as You’ll Get to Glock .22LR

The Austrian ISSC M22 self-loading pistol is a fun gun that resembles the world’s most popular police pistol, the Glock. The pistol is affordable at little more than the price of a .22 conversion unit for the Glock pistol and has good features including a Lothar Walther barrel. While it looks like the double action only Glock, the ISSC-Austria M22 is a single-action pistol.

Man shooting the Ruger American Rimfire rifle

Review: Ruger American Rimfire

The introduction of a new bolt-action .22 is a continuation of the classic American .22 caliber sporter. Despite the introduction of modern self-loading rifles, the Ruger American Rimfire has its place.

Daisy Red Ryder: A Boy’s Memory

I am sure many of the readers of The Shooter’s Log started out with a Daisy Red Ryder. Most will remember little Ralphie opening his Red Ryder on Christmas morning in A Christmas Story—or at least his mother’s warning about shooting his eye out with it. Others, such as myself, started with something owning a little more pep such as a Winchester Model 69A .22 Long Rifle—a bolt-action .22 LR that quickly taught me to make every shot count small game such as rabbits and squirrel. Fortunately, a few years after that, I got the Daisy and while Black Bart never crossed my path, I thoroughly enjoyed torturing my little green plastic army men in mock wars for months afterward.

Rossi Plinker revolver with two boxes of ammunition

Review: Rossi Plinker .22

If there is a more welcome addition to anyone’s shooting battery than a good quality 22 caliber kit gun, I do not know what it could be. This class of light revolver, chambered for the .22 rimfire cartridge, is a fun gun, a good trainer, and even a small game handgun. There are few handguns that will see more use in a family setting than a .22 revolver.

CCI's Maxi Mag +V ammunition with Henry Octagon Pump rifle and target

Range Report: The Gallery Gun Reimagined: Henry’s Pump Octagon

The pump action is as American as a gun design gets. While most prolific in just about every modern shotgun, pump-action rifles were, and are still, out there. One of the most prolific was the old Winchester Model 1890 that came in a number of .22 caliber rimfire chamberings. Once synonymous with shooting galleries and small game getting for decades, the pump .22 has fallen by the wayside.
