Do you have a “fun gun”? Do you have a fun gun on your wish list?
I have rough rider .22lr I have just for fun shooting. Its been awesome and it was less than $200. I rarely clean the thing and I take it to most range trips just to have a little something extra to play with.
I would also like to get a Walther PPK chambered in .22lr for a “fun gun”.
My fun gun is my Ruger-57. It was the first firearm that I bought that was not purchased for a specific self-defense purpose. I was fortunate to get it about a month before the pandemic hit and I had started stocking ammo. Unfortunately, now it costs me an arm and a leg to get a box of 50.
I like trying different setups on my Ruger, Marlin, and Savage 22 rifles to make them tack drivers. Anyone can go with the high dollar shooters, but I think it’s more interesting to see what you can do with mid range mods, optics and a little tuning.
People look down on the Marlins and Savages. Like Anshutz is the only .22 that can hit any target at all. Sure, in the right hands, under exactly the right conditions, an Anshutz or Bleker will own all. I’ll let you know if I’m ever in one of those situations. (Hint; I don’t see me shooting at the Olympics)
