A Single Six 6 1/2" Stainless Steel.
22lr. but, the 22mag. Is Pure Fun.
A once read that the 22mag. goes into Ballistic Gell 3 times deeper than a 38 Special round.
Gives you something to think about.

Ruger Single-Ten

We have 2 in the family. Ruger LCR and Ruger Single-Ten.
Love em both, but the nod for the finest between them is the Single-Ten.
It looks so fine and shoots so sweet...

My preference is a little difference. I do not want a 22 revolver to weigh as much as a GP100 or other large revolvers. My favorite is no longer made. It is a Taurus B945. It is a blued 8 shot revolver with a 5" barrel and does not weigh a ton. Very accurate and easy to carry.

I have a 617-0 with the 8-3/8 barrel and a single ten. They both are as accurate as I can shoot them. That being said, I like the balance and feel of the single ten just a bit more.

Through high school and many years after my rimfire handgun was a 6 inch K-22.
My brother had an identical one and we shot a few dozen bricks from those Smiths over the years.
Then it was a Ruger Flatgate, and a few years ago I had a OM Bearcat.
The last few years my only rimfire handgun was a Kimber .22 slide on my 1911.
The Kimber conversion was my current favorite until last Sunday, when I picked up a mint Colt New Frontier. It is a dual caliber model, but no magnum cylinder or box with it.
Man, what a crisp, smooth action, and accurate to boot ! Even my old Flatgate wasn't as sweet.
And those New Frontiers ( and .22 Peacemakers) gotta be some of the more handsome .22 revolvers out there.
Now I can save up for a M-617, as I miss having a DA .22 !

My Stainless Single Six from the 70's or so is very accurate and reliable. If a round won't go bang in that, it's truly a dud. My most recent .22LR handgun, a 4" SP101 responded to springs and polishing, and is also a life purchase.

Advantage revolver is the ability to consume everything from Aguila Super Colibri and CCI CB to the hottest LR ammo made or CCI shotshells. I bought one for each daughter when they hit 21yrs. (New shooters are often not comfortable with noise). My favorite of the two is the 6.5" SS. It still looks like new.

She is pretty much a safe queen now, but a Mid-60's .22 / .22wrm. "convertible" is my favorite revolver. I have no idea how many rounds have passed through it but, it is a substantial number in the 50+ years I have owned her. It is blued with white grips(I think simulated stag horn although they might be real) grips. It was given to me by my dad's CO when I turned 16. it has dispatched huge numbers of squirrels, rabbits and when I remembered to have the mag cylinder in it some snakes too. It is in pretty much pristine condition inspite of its high use factor. I think the holster is a Don Hume. I'll have to dig her out and take her to the range after the holidays. Oh, and by the way, I never remember this thing never having failed to go bang, ever! Merry Christmas Everyone from the upper left corner of our great land.

Browning Buck Mark Hunter hands down the most accurate .22LR handgun I've ever owned.

Couldn't help but notice no one has a single 9
I have a chance to pick one up new in box, at a good deal.
The one with Williams fiber optic sights & 6-1/2" barrel. Model 08150 SS
It would be for range fun, what's the vote on these?
