Single Ten or Single Nine -- that is the question

I have been eyeing the Single 9 for a long time and probably will "pull the trigger" very shortly. I have always liked the Single Ten too though. 22LR has the advantage of being very cheap and easy to find. 22 WMR is just plain cool but ain't all that cheap. Those are the trade offs. Not going to do the Single Six which does both because I don't want to have to re-zero for each caliber.

Come on people. What should I do? Can't afford both right now due to Hope and Change.

You might consider starting with the Single Ten just for the cost of the ammo, planning to get the Single Nine when funds are available. It may also depend on what your current situation is. If you are flush with .22 LR handguns, then the Single Nine might make a reasonable first choice.

I agree. The Single Ten is the place to start because that is most likely to be the one you shoot the most, thanks to cost of ammo and, believe me, shoot it a lot you will. Too darn fun not to shoot a lot.

My next one is going to be the Single Nine, but I'll always be shooting the Single Ten the most, even then.

Single Ten is a great gun. I haven't seen the need (yet) to go for the Single Nine.

The Single Ten is an incredible revolver. Its very accurate and a real beauty. I would get it first, and if you feel the need for something hotter than Long Rifle, shoot Stingers or YellowJackets until you get the Single Nine. You could also look for a used Single Six, and sight it in for Magnums. That might save you a few bucks, and have better resale value than the Single Nine if you ever would have to sell it.

If you are that broke you probably need to go with the Single 10. I am going to wait till they either stretch the 10 out another inch like the 9 or break down and make a convertible version of the 9. I dont have much need for the .22 mag myself I just like the looks of the longer barrel on the Single 9.

I bought a Single Ten because I wanted something inexpensive to shoot (at targets only)
It is a fun gun and more accurate than my old eyes are good for.
I find myself shooting it most of the time. Great for practicing trigger control.

I don't feel the need for a Single Nine as I don't hunt, and have a Security Six 357 revolver for those times when I want to make some noise.
