    My Ugliest Gun

    I have an H&R 922 that I acquired when working at a pawn shop for $20. It was covered in rust. I got rid of the rust, but it is still majorly pitted. Surprisingly, the bore looks good. You have to completely remove the cylinder to load or unload the gun. The most amazing thing I discovered is that it is a tack driver. I didn't group it yet, but on all plinking sessions, I was able to hit everything I shot at - big or small.

    Those little H&R's were affordable, not cheap, and I haven't shot one that wasn't accurate. Their DA trigger pulls tend to being on the heavy side of sucking but they go bang every time.

    Some of the long barreled .22's could outshoot far more expensive pistols if they were in the hands of someone that knew the gun.

    Ugly? No. just a oldie but a goodie....

    Gun control is like trying to reduce drunk driving by making it tougher for sober people to own cars.

    H&R is much like Taurus in that they have an undeserved reputation for being cheap firearms. Also like with Taurus, that reputation is largely from folks who have never owned one and simply mimic opinions they've heard of read, mainly from other people who've never owned one. I've owned a few H&Rs, they've all been more than adequate. I really miss the little .32 Short top-break revolver I had back in the 90's. I liked its styling and it was a fun little revolver to shoot.

    I had a H&R 732 for years- paid $35 cash back around 1970? Never ever had an issue- gave it to my daughter about 10 years ago along with mom's S&W 38 spec snubbie.

    Jeez, now I’m gonna have nightmares.

    Actually olfarhors’ S&W is a work of art. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder!

    My first revolver was a break top H&R in 38 S&W, 2 inch. It, too, was very accurate. Not good out of a shoulder holster, though.
