Husqvarna .22

Probably the most popular caliber firearm in most of the world. Many of us have more than one. They also are very collectible and still cheap to shoot.

Nice looking little rifle Joe.

I like that octagon barrel. Looks like whoever had it since 1942 took good care of it.

A good little shooter too lads, I shot the tin hat target at 15m and my pal Jim pulled it in even tighter with his second group on the bullseye target.
I took the rifle off him after that one. :lol:

I did try some CCI sub-sonics that were in my range bag but it prefered the Remington Target ammo. Just need a bit longer range to try it out on now.

I am really pleased with this one. :D

Nice job Joe I had a couple slots saved for a couple more .22s but the plod stole them off me when I renewed. Only way I can get any thing new is if I sell some thing and I dont have any thing I want to let go. Hmmmm
