Fun

It’s amazing how fun a suppressed .22 is.
While everyone around you is firing off fifty-cent-per-round .223 and .308 out of absurdly tricked-out ARs and M1As, shooting free (( Given to me as a gift from friends. Thanks Doug & Nathan! )) .22LR from a suppressed 10/22 (( The rifle, Trijicon red dot, and silencer probably cost less than a stock AR these days. )) is rather light on the wallet, not to mention an absurd amount of fun. Cheap, comfortable, quiet, and no recoil. What’s not to love?
I also fired a magazine through my 20″ AR today to make sure it was still holding zero since the last time I took it out (it was). It might be shooting a hair to the left, and I’ll have to check it the next time I go out. I’m thinking of scoping out my 20″ AR and suppressed 10/22 and moving the red dot from the 10/22 to the 16″ AR. Any thoughts on decent scopes for ARs? ACOGs are shiny, but spendy. I’d prefer something compact and rugged over longer and fragile, but so long as it’s rugged enough for regular use, I’m open to anything.
I need to get out to the range a bit more, and start pushing the range out. I haven’t shot further than 100 yards in some time and I miss it.

  1. Agreed 100% I got to shoot an suppressed, full-auto .22LR AR with a Gemtech silencer on it last year, and it was a BLAST. It looked, sounded and felt like that BB Gun attraction at the State Fair each year. .22LR AR’s should be licensed right along with crack and meth as being DAMN addictive. 🙂
