i have shot one 22...a luger...and it wasn't fun at all...i like some recoil... but the cheap 22 ammo is attractive for plinking. does anyone make a 22 revolver that has a little kick to it? i am going to a gun show in a month and i am curious of what i can pick up

Felt recoil in a .22? I supose my first question would be why. But to each his own. Just don't shoot a 970. You only hear it, not feel it. If I were to make a sugestion I go light wieght, short barreled and load it with CCI minimags. I run these rounds through my Walther P22 with the shorter 3.4" barrel and they give a pretty hefty kick for their size.

funny, most people actually try to eliminate recoil, i guess there is a macho rush to having a large caliber gun beat you to death with it's recoil.. personally im not a fan of recoil and you can get the same feeling going fast, controlled rapid fire.. now thats what im talkin bout.

I had a NAA mini-revolver, in .22lr, years back. I don't remember it as having any discernible recoil. I also had a High Standard derringer, in .22Mag. no kick, to mention, in that one either. I did, however, shoot it with my middle finger, on the trigger, and my forefinger along the barrel. This method gave me a quick point, and better control. My forefinger was quite short of the front of the barrel, so ther was no danger of an accident, with it.

Cheap .22 mags run around $7 to $8 per 50....about 4 times the cost of 22lr. But they do make a pretty nice bang for their size.

Between the two .22 Magnums, the Black Widow model would be the one I'd want as well. :)

The shorter the barrel and the lighter the revolver the more perceived "recoil" you will feel.

CCI stingers also make a large flame out of shorter barreled pistols that really rocks the gun back. Not really "recoil" but muzzle flip and a nice muzzle blast. Makes the NAA minis kinda hard to hold on to even though they don't have much recoil. In my opinion the .22lr mini bucks harder than my .22mag because there is less to hold on to. The .22mag just spits the bullet out so quick and makes allot of noise and flash. Barrels really to short to take advantage of the longer shell and extra powder of the 22 mag.

Does anyone make an ultralight snub J frame that holds like 9 rounds. That would be sweet.

Well, either one of those appeal to me! Except for the MSRP, I could buy two 38's or 357's for the price of one of those. I know they are not cheap anymore, because I looked for about a week and could not find a 22LR or 22Mag, for anywhere close to what I bought my 357 for. I finally bought a cowboy 22LR/22M to plink with, for 170, If I could have found a standard revolver for between 250-300 I might have bought it, but did not find it new or used.

Aguilas SuperMaximum @ 1750fps is the fastest 30grain .22lr at over 100fps faster than the CCI Stingers but CCI has the fastest 40grain out right now with the Velocitor @ 1450fps.

Both Taurus and Charter 2000 make a .22 revolver with 8 or 9 shots that will outshoot the S&W and cost about half as much. The Taurus is a snubbie and I think the Charter is a 3 or 4" barrel. Might be a few others out there.
