    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!

    For a rimfire rifle, I'm getting to like this recently purchased M&P 15-22.....

    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.

    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

    The 10/22 is a classic. One of the best. I have three. Here is my bench 10/22.

    That's quite a rimfire collection. I just picked up one of those P22's on Black Friday. How does it shoot? Have you done any modifications to it? It has to be one of the coolest looking rimfire pistols out there.
