Yeah, there was. These are my GF’s. We call them Little Mikki and Mini Mikki. She loves the little derringer, puts it in her watch pocket.

Yeah, I know. It’s small however since we are both retired we go everywhere together. Firearm always within reach between us.

Had to think if anymore rimfires around the house. Oh, night stand!

High Standard Sentinel, 9 shot, loaded with 40gr. hollow points. At least if the shooting begins the holes will be easy to patch. :D

I keep a record of firearms in the safe and pictures. I realized there was just one of the Beretta.22. Thought I better take a few more.

Firearms are a personal purchase. You like it, it’s all good. If I was in the market for a rimfire handgun hands down it would be the Beretta. If you get a chance to see one take a look. Impressive like all Beretta’s.

The grips are from Beretta. I went with smooth since the recoil is light. Since we love pictures here are a few more. It’s been a safe queen since purchase.

My Colt 1911 Gold Cup Trophy is my favorite, perfect for training and seriously accurate!View attachment 3291
I just ordered one myself. I’ve passed this pistol up many times. Getting hard to find, heard they might be discontinued. (Gold Cup)

Researching a trigger upgrade. Read they are heavy. Yours feel heavy or any modifications?

Will post pictures when it gets here.

Had a Ruger Mark II in blue with a ten-inch bull barrel on it. It would put holes into the bottoms of soda cans from fifty yards all day if I held it right. Gave it away to a good home several years ago. Ain't missed it...

S&W Mod 41s. These were used when I used to shoot 2700 Matches.

S-W-M18-3.jpg
This was my trainer (Mod 18) for cheap practice vs. shooting .38 specials through my Mod 15.

I also have a Walther P22. But, where's the pictures?

My most recent addition to my .22 caliber line of handguns. S&W Compact.

Aloha, Mark

PS....conversions? Yup...love my .45ACP to .22LR conversion on my Springfield Armory frame.

Had a Taurus Model 94 in stainless; .22LR. Gave it away several years ago; ain't missed it. Also had an electroless nickel-plated Browning Buckmark URX with 7-inch barrel and a full Pic rail along the top. Gave that one away, too. I don't remember if I ever fired it. Don't know why I even bought these guns. I can't hit the broad side of a barn with a handgun. Just an addiction to the smell of burned gunpowder, I guess...

Mine was crisp and slightly heavy when i first got it, but it lightend up after a few hundred rounds! I would see what it's like when you get it, and decide if it's good enough! I kind of like mine where it's at, as it's exactly like my carry pistol's trigger, same weight and same feel!

That's easy my Ruger Single Six.
Always wanted a S&W Kit Gun but never had the bread to get one.

Hey JoeLink what's with the time out thing on editing or even deleting my own messages.
I don't like that, I might want to retract something I made a mistake on or it may have something personal that I want to remove from the NET.
Any chance you can do away with that new feature? Here and on Northwest?

My favorite rimfire handgun is....which ever one I am holding and shooting. 22LR is a blast and everyone needs more trigger time. I know I do. Ok my top 22LR is my Kimber 22LR conversion for my national match 1911 style 45 though a S&W 41 is a close 2nd. Runner ups go to Ruger Mark II and S&W 22A & 22S

Years ago I bought my wife a S&W 422 and a 622. I don't have pictures, but these were partially or all aluminum. The 422 was blue and the 622 was, well, not stainless, but looked like it was raw aluminum with a coating or something.
