22s are great fun. Cheap ammo and accurate. I had a Savage 22 years ago, which I lost in the bottom of a lake. Go figure.

No experience with the Savage but have been having fun with a Ruger 10/22 with a tactical stock for years. For a hand gun the Walther/Colt 1911 - .22 is blast, same weight as a .45ACP 1911 with no recoil. You can't go wrong with a decent rimfire for having fun and perfecting skills. I've been looking at the Henry lever action rimfire, much lower cost ammo.

Good luck on your decision, let us know your opinion if you get it.

I had to hand in my daisy bb gun about 40 years ago there was no licence needed but the law changed.
I think if I lived in the land of the free I would probably enjoy firearm ownership.

I bought this 64 a few months back. The quality of the newer model seems a bit lower, with the stamped steel clip and plastic stock. But it was cheap from Academy Sports. I've yet to shoot it.

Very impressive Skywalker! My collection includes various handguns. But I've never been a very good shot.

It's interesting you prefer a 40 caliber for your match shooting. I would think the 38/357 would be more accurate, with it's slightly smaller bore.

The caliber choice is mostly driven by practical shooting rules: anything smaller than. 40" gets minor scoring (5-3-1) instead of major (5-4-2) due to less recoil.

I am familiar with one of these model 64 variants: Savage Arms which comes pre-threaded for a barrel-end sound reducer.

I’m also familiar with the Remington 597 in 22 WMR, the magazines of which make what should have been a fine rifle virtually worthless. The Savage is a reliable feeder and accurate. To those who view the humble .22 with disdain, it is effective in a very important range of engagement for all kinds of varmints and will dispatch prairie dogs and squirrels (in particular) if the shooter is at least mediocre.

Plus it's an absolute kick in the ass to simply go out plinking with.

My daughter married into a cattle family and one of their family traditions was that the bride fire a shoot gun at the wedding.
I believe it's some sort of revolver shot gun.
She was stopped at the air port for GSR on the way to the honeymoon.
This is her after the bang.

Definitely a revolver shotgun (although it's a lot of time I hadn't seen one).
Judging from the tiny bore, I'd venture it's a .410.
Maybe a CIRCUIT JUDGE .45COLT/.410MAG?

BTW, nice bride. (y)
