When it's on the History Channel of course!

Some recent show on "American Firepower" slapped a still of the .22 on screen when describing the Gun that Won the West and its compatibility of ammo with the .44-40 Peacemaker.

I suspected they had a case of Rectal / Cranial Inversion on seeing bits of The World Wars, but damn!:bang:

    Guns all look alike to "gunsists"
    It's a source of great pride for me, that when my name is googled, one finds book titles and not mug shots. Daniel C. Chamberlain

    I remember running up on .22 WRF shells when I was a kid, but never saw a rifle to use them in. They were well thought of by oldsters, although I don't know the ballistics Nowadays, someone loads ammo for them at around $20 a box. Maybe Aguila?
    Concealed carry is for protection, open carry is for attention.
