Thanks, I shoot them often. Except for the bottom one which I just bought. I haven't shot it yet.

Very nice.

If I buy a semiauto .22 it would probably be a Ruger 10/22.

I thought it was required for every gunner here to own one.

I'm just radical, I guess. I like external hammers so I gave my Glenfield Mod 60 away. I have a Henry pump and a Marlin lever action. I have been thinking of getting a smaller Henry lever action but the longer rifles are probably better for me.

The Ruger is tempting because I like the magazine, it has such a good reputation, and it is a great value. I would not give up one of the others though. I like revolvers for .22 handguns too. I have the Walther P22 but the rest are all revolvers. I consider .22 autos to be fun toys but the revolvers are survival and even defense tools as well as lots of fun. I know many disagree with that and I would not argue, it is just a personal choice with me. My first cartridge handgun was a Ruger Standard auto and it was terrible. I would not buy another ever. I know they have a great reputation, that is why I bought it, but I am ruined for them forever.

My avoidance of autos applies only to .22s. I am quite comfortable with centerfire autos that are well proven, though I like revolvers and am fine with both.

I had a Beretta Mod 21 and Mod 70 in .22 LR and neither was reliable enough. I have fired a Browning Buckmark that was reliable until the sun got hot enough the lube started melting on the ammo and mucked up the gun. My Walther has also never faltered from round one. I still feel better with a .22 revolver when it is important.

I will never again have any tip up barrel auto without an extractor. Nice idea but too high a functional cost.

I think I like the 10/22 because they are cheap, look cool, and don't cost an arm and a leg to shoot. But that can be said of almost all my .22LRs. The best feature is like you say the magazine. I can load a couple dozen of them at home and not have to reload at the range. Love the Henry but their slogan "load on Sunday and shoot all week" isn't exactly like a removeable magazine rifle. I have two Walthers in 22 that sometimes give me problems. One is a PP and the other is a PPK. My P22 shoots fine.

I traded in my Walther P22 for my Ruger SR22.
The Walther was too darn fussy on whay ammo it would shoot.
Too many clicks when I expected a bang.
The Ruger eats anything I feed it.

My P22 will eat anything I put in it. I prefer the mag release and safety on it. But both are fun to shoot.
