At 70 I have had the opportunity to shoot every caliber in the US Army personal and squad weapon inventory and own a variety of pistols and rifles. I have pretty much gravitated 100% to 22 LR in both pistol and rifle and have found enough challenge in improving accuracy to last me. I can shoot asl long as I want and have no ill effects and the wallet is still in good shape.

No more big guns for this old man

Just bought a MKIV a month ago and have had it to the range three times and it's a joy to clean this MKIV compared to the MKII I had 20 years ago. Also have a SA 9 1/2 barrel combo and love to shoot magnums in that one. 22's are the BANG!

I couldn't help but smile as I read this thread. The number of .22lr firearms has increased along with my increasing age. They are just more fun even as I practice with cc firearms. When going to the range, one of the three Marks go with me. Other days are decimated to 22 rifles.

My first mouse gun was a H&R Sportsman 9 shot revolver. A 10/22 was added many years later. I counted the increasing numbers of .22s just before adding to this thread and it seems there are 9 in my safe, including a Ruger American. They aren't decreasing as other calibers have.

Well darn, there are a few that haven't been to the range in a while. Guess I'll have to see if there's range time this PM or in the morning.

Thanks bud, I have six .22 rifles to match up with them.

So many other .22's I'd love to add.

70 this year. I agree, new to handguns (2 yrs) and am thinking for swapping my GP100 for a MK IV or (shame) SW Victory. Will keep my little 9 though. Only problem is 3000 rounds of 357 and 38.

There must be something wrong with me. As I get older, I'm moving towards bigger guns. I just added a GP100 to my arsenal and love to shoot 100-150 rounds of 357 magnum when I go to the range.

I'll be 68 in a couple of months.

I still enjoy the shooting .357 and .44 mag, but I recently got a Buck Mark that is a lot of fun to shoot and is even better on the wallet.

I'm 73 and still love my big revolvers and semi-autos. I have noticed that my .22 handgun count has gone up though. I guess I see a trend here also:

Ruger Mark II Target
Ruger Mark III 22/45
Ruger Mark IV Target
Ruger Single Six
Ruger Bearcat
S&W M&P .22
S&W Model 17
Walther P22
GSG 1911 .22

In my first response to this post, I was 78. I'm now 79 and looking at 80. Backed off on shooting .45ACP last year. Then, I picked up a Shield 45 for carry. One has to practice with the carry gun. Right? One thing held to another. So, a STI Edge 2011 .45ACP called my name. Now, there's a CZ97 out there somewhere with my name on it.

I have a pair of .357Mag's lying about the house for home defense. They need practice too.

To be honest, those larger caliber guns aren't as much fun to shoot as they were five years ago. I ran 65 rounds thru the Edge yesterday. 45 at 10 yards, all in the 5 inch targets. 10 at 15 yards, 7 in the target. 10 at 25 yards, only 5 in the target. Don't have as good a control as when younger.

Ran a 100 rounds of .22lr thru my Ruger 10-22 at 25 yards (max at the range). Shooting five round groups. Every group, but one, had four rounds in one hole with a 1 inch flyer. One group had all five in one hole. This is with the standard Carbine barrel in a Boyd's lefty Blaster, Ruger receiver, KIDD bolt and a Brimstone 2.25 pound trigger job. Much easier shooting. Of course, a rifle usually is.

Revolvers have an advantage when it comes to ammo selections. An auto is usually limited to LR.
