Anyone have experience with a Ruger single six 22LR 22 Mag pistol? How you like it and what barrel length 4 5/8, 5½, 6½, 7½, 9½ inches ? How much different is the 22 mag to the 22 LR? I am thinking of getting a stainsless 5.5” or 6.5”. Thanks Tink

My dad had one in the 7.5" version and it is a great gun for plinking and target shooting.

The 22mag seems to have a bit more noise tan the 22LR but his was equally as accurate at most all diatances I shot it at.

My younger brother has it now and I'm not sure how much he shoots it.

22Mag is a zippy little round. Pretty expensive compared to regular 22LR though. Probably about 4x more cost per 50.

You won't get the full benefit of 22Mag over 22LR in a (relatively) short barrel like a pistol but you will pick up probably 300-400 feet per second in similar bullet weights. That ends up being a fair bit more power.

I have one in SS with the 5.5" barrel. Nice little gun. Dont use the 22 mag cylinder much because of ammo price. Just use it for target shooting and not hunting. I also have 2 semi auto 22's (browning buckmark and ruger mark 3) and I shoot those way more. Unless you really like the single action wheel guns, I would look at a semi auto. So much more fun to shoot IMHO. I also got the ultimate clip loader and it is crazy how much ammo I can burn through now. If you have a semi auto 22 (does not work on a few models so check that out before buying) you have to get one of these!!!

    • Probably something like electric cars that was never going to happen!  Only the future will know.
    • scary interesting...
    • Article on WSJ.com today about a European clean meat startup getting nearly $9 million in funding from Merck. With big pharma in the game, is there really any doubt it will be on store shelves soon? The cattle and pork industry better come up with a "pink slime" type of name for this, or they can kiss their herds goodbye. Franken Meat? https://www.wsj.com/articles/startup-producing-cell-grown-meat-raises-new-funding-1531738800?mod=hp_lista_pos4

    • That's YOUR opinion.    Just remember, everything is fine, in moderation.
    • I do it, have experience with both homers and shooters. I am not a die hard as I was a few years ago but will get back into more when I get a new pup here in the near future.   The birds are not to bad to care for just need food and water. My experience and most troubles have been trying to keep critters out of the pigeon loft. Mink etc like to wreak havoc and it sucks when you lose all your birds to a stupid rodent. Especially the homers after you put in all the work to get them coming back. I haven't had any issues keeping birds at home by the dogs. Best part with the homers is if I train away from home, most times the birds are back home in the loft before I get back lol.   As for working the dog, you probably want to invest in a bird launcher as well especially since your dogs a pointer. Not sure how steady your dog will be or what kind of prey drive it will have. Hopefully you letting it chase birds already didnt cause any issues. I would just slowly introduce them to the pigeons. Might even start with just clipping some flight feathers and throw it in an open area and see how your dog reacts and go from there.   It should point naturally but just use the launcher to steady the dog up. Just look up methods with a check cord etc. when using the launcher. If you want them steady to flush or steady to shot that's up to you but that's way down the road yet. Some of that  pointing should come natural but with this dog being a little older you never know what your gonna get but never too late to start either I guess.    good luck
