As much as I like the Ruger rimfires that I own, they only represent part of my .22LR firearm inventory; I also enjoy shooting other rimfires, particularly handguns, from the likes of S&W, Walther, Beretta, Taurus, etc., most of which have threaded barrels to allow for suppressor use.

One of my favorites is a dedicated .22LR AR pistol build, which is reliable, accurate, and of course quiet:



So if you're in the mood tell us and post up some images of the non-Ruger rimfires that you enjoy shooting (I know you've got to have at least one) ;)

This is my 992 Taurus. I like it because I can switch between 22 lr and 22 mag. I bought it to carry in a shoulder holster when I mow with my ZTR and rats show up. Now that I have my grass under control I use it to keep snakes out of my fish pond and rat snakes out of my chicken house.
I really like it and it also scares the buzzards from rousting on my house. When they don’t scare easy the 10/22 comes to the rescue.

I own a .22 LR Taurus Mdl 94 DA Stainless Revolver 5" looks Just like yours that I sometimes carry when hunting or checking Traps or Fishing but it is .22LR Only .I used it to dispatch Feral Hogs & Coyotes caught alive in traps. Beware the Buzzard is a protected bird of prey if caught killing one you can risk having your state hunting license revoked your firearm taken , heavy fines , ban from hunting for more than a year . They make a round for the shotgun that explodes to scare birds off. It's not worth it to shoot a buzzard .If you have a buzzard problem call DNR Wildlife they will know best how to handle it.I have a Four KEL TEC .22 rim fires 3 are pistols one is .22 magnum and a .22mag rifle .But I like my Ruger Rimfires best of all.

What is the vehicle behind you?
More fun chasing hogs around on foot and getting up close and personal, and then showing them what a shortened barrel on a Ruger Super Blackhawk in .44 magnum, and how one handloaded round with a 240 grain Speer solid will give them heartburn:

Nice job! The challenge is getting close and placing a small cal. bullet just behind the ear or forhead.
I long time friend which is no longer with us once shot and killed a boar from about 17 to 18 yards with an air rifle in .22 caliber.

Grandpa used to pop 'em behind the ear, reaching over the rail with a .22 rifle. Steers he, would stand up on the rails and use a 20 pound sledge hammer to the forehead as they were herded under him.

Those air guns are pretty good. They make great hunting guns and the ammo is inexpensive. I think I paid $5.00 for five hundred pellets at Big 5 when I had my air gun.
Having to cock the gun was a job and it got old quick firing single shot. But for the intended purpose, which is for hunting, it is a great gun.

It will take down a good size pig, coyote and anything under that. Rabbits and squirrels are good to eat, you won't go hungry. It's a good survival gun.

Most of us prefer a gun powder gun and I'm one of them. But an air gun is good to have as a back up in the woods, desert or anywhere you hunt.

Everyone should have a good quality air gun.
Times like these when ammo is hard to find and pricey when you do, the old air gun can put a squirrel or rabbit in the pot without wasting any powder.

The Air Gun like the .22LR is all to often underestimated and looked at as a Child's toy . People with this mind set end up victims of tragic accidental events when shooting these weapons . Never thinking of them as deadly weapons but they are just as deadly as any other firearm.
