    Was regretting trading that Ruger American 22 compact I had away yesterday till I remembered your post where you can get them with a threaded barrel. Now I don't feel so bad because that's what I want to tilt me toward a suppressor, even if there is now long odds of it happening.

You know, such important things that cause us much consternation in our rigorous lives........!
    Ah, the research required to get better popcorn would be fun. Have you ever just dropped by a movie theater for the popcorn to take home?

    My solution to the hair issue is electric clippers with a No. 3 attachment. Apply to your head every 4 weeks and that bed head goes away.

    Can't help with the ice hole. It never gets that cold in Alabama.

Aids understanding with those brands and styles the reader may not be familiar with. I see Aguilla makes a 60 grain subsonic. Wonder how those would do? If the youth stock is too short for you, you can always buy a slip on limbsaver pad to add length.(recoil not a factor here of course). Our small game goes out Feb 15th, quite frankly I could use a break. Nice post. Think about reposting it on F&S. Starting to look like a CNN thread over there. Kidding F&S posters, just kidding. I know how to scroll.
    Well said sir. 👍

I respect you and some others for all the information that is posted concerning firearms, it sounds very interesting but is beyond me with the exception of plinking with the Ruger 10/22 that I have for woodchuckes. I am very pro gun oriented and take great interest in gun rights issues and that is why I become active in political matters on F&S as those are the matters that are going to affect all of our gun rights. We dare not take the antis as nothing to worry about, they are a dangerous group ! Thanks for the info on the American rimfire 22.
    Just to be clear, I DO consider all political posts pertaining in some way to the 2a to be hunting-shooting related. Was referring to postings of a general political nature. Also want to be clear I believe anyone can post anything in their heart as I know how to scroll. I just think when someone new checks in they aren't looking to weigh in on current political madness. It also seems that those postings are where civility usually ends and the insults fly. I mean seriously, do any of us really know each other well enough to hurl personal insults. I don't.

    Thank Richard. It was about $326 after taxes and handling.

    F&S could use a little hunting-fishing-shooting infusion. Pretty sure it's why newbies drop in. Bet they get confused about where they're at sometimes.😉

    Here in southeast Missouri they go for $270 at academy sports. 60 degree bolt, 3-5 lb adjustable trigger, 2 stock modules. These are quality guns.

    That is a VERY nice rig. I often use velocity to find my 22 sweet spot. If for instance the gun shoots a brand well and I find it's velocity is say 1040fps then I often find other brands at that velocity regardless of manufacturer to group better than the original brand at different velocity. I find it a fast track to a guns favorite ammo. As always just my 2cents and other opinions may vary. Again, that is a sweet rig. Did you happen to try your mk3 22/45 also? Remember, pics always appreciated.

    Thanks Dewman! I appreciate the feedback and suggestions. I didn't use a chronograph so here's the factory published velocities of the loads I tried:

    CCI Subsonic HP uses a 40gr bullet, muzzle velocity of 1040 fps
    CCI Quite uses a 40gr bullet, 710 fps
    CCI Mini-Mag HP uses a 36gr bullet, 1260 fps
    ELEY Subsonic HP with 40gr bullet, 1040 fps

    Another CCI Subsonic I fired today uses a 40gr segmented bullet, also at 1040 fps. It was just in the back yard and I didn't fire for group but dropped a squirrel with ease.

    The short length of pull is just fine with me and it seems to also fit PigHuntress very well. I may swap out the cheek piece with the higher comb one that was included in the box.

    Here's a photo of my rifle...
