WOW, finally I am first for something. well, all i have to say is that I own a 22magnum bolt action, 22LR semi-auto and a 22moutain eagle semi-auto pistol. I think that rimfires are alot of fun and cheap to shoot and very accurate. I bagged a 4ft. Diamond back on sunday with my 22mag.(well, it's head flew off) But whats really bad about them is that you cant take down a bear with them.
