    Any rimfire junkies out there. I have a growing love for rimfires especially .22's.

    So post up a rimfire and tell us about it.

    I'll start. Here is my Beretta Neos. It has had a few thousand rounds through it. A few malfunctions when it was new, but is pretty reliable now. It eats everything, but mostly only sees bulk from walmart. It is remarkably accurate, especially with the red dot. I can pick off cans at 100 yards all day with it. Breakdown is a breeze and the scope is fixed even when the barrel is off so it stays zeroed perfectly. IMO it is a very underappreciated pistol. I know the Rugers and Brownings get most of the attention, but Beretta did a good job with this one.

    Wow I haven't shot many .22 pistols but hitting tin cans from 100 yards with ease out of a 5" or 6" barrel seems pretty crazy to me. I have trouble doing that with my 10/22 sometimes. Nice gun! I like the way the grips look.

    Ya, I didn't mean to make it sound like I can hit a can every time. But 7 out of a 10 round clip is pretty normal. When I go shooting we shoot at the desert, so most everyone brings rifles. So we usually set up targets at 80 to 120 yards. I just plink away with my Neos. The kids really love it.

    Didn't mean to make this about my Neos though. If you have a rimfire post it up!

    That MK I is awesome:shock:
    I would love to have one of those. I see you are also a fan of inexpensive red dots:grin:. BSA makes quite a deal. I have had years of good luck with all of mine.

    And very inexpensive as well. Definitely worth a look.

    Keep 'em coming!

    The casings make it look tough:grin:
    I just bought my first Marlin on Black Friday. I got a Marlin 60 for $149. I've wanted one for years. I believe it's basically the same rifle as yours just with no clip. How reliable is your 795?

    You will love your Marlin 60. I have one with the SS barrel and I have never had a failure of any kind. I lost count after 2000 rounds. I just wish it could hold more rounds.

    I just bought his Marlin model 60 last weekend. http://www.xdtalk.com/forums/xdtalk-chatter-box/136398-tuesday-my-birthday-so.html

    I got it used at a local shop, looked like it had been sitting in a corner of a room for a few years cause the scope had so much dust on it you couldn't see thru it, and the bolt was so dirty I don't think the previous owner ever cleaned it. I got the chance to shoot it this weekend and it shoots great!! Not one single problem once I cleaned it up.

    Not a great picture of the gun (10/22) but I like the picture in general

    Cool pic. Is that one of the newer "plastic" models, or the older metal ones?
    I picked up a plastic one a few months ago but haven't shot it yet.

    Until I get home and get a pic off my laptop, you'll have to imagine this:

    Savage 93 BVTSS(?)...stainless action and heavy varmint barrel (20"), thumbhole stock, .17HMR.

    Its a brand new model with the plastic trigger group. Its a fun, accurate little gun. Can't beat an afternoon of shooting for under $10. Its tough to see in that resized picture but there is one of those spinning .22 targets about 75 yards away
