just found this pic.. thought it would particularly interest brucelee..
just the stock case, but it's nicely die-cut and there's even a section to pop out if i upgrade to the 5" barrel and one that pops out if i put a laser or flashlight onto it..
and yeah, if you run high velocity ammo through it, you'll pretty much have zero problems. a box of 550 rounds of Remington Golden Bullet hi-vel .22lr is like $10 at walmart.. it's not like it takes some kind of uberammo...
i actually managed to get a knife onto an airplane post 9-11.
i didn't do it intentionally. a couple years prior my brother had given me one of those "swiss army credit cards" for my birthday
and i kept it in my wallet.. flying from Boston to Miami, i walked through the metal detector, set it off, emptied my pockets into a tray, walked back through and they handed me the tray on the other side. didn't run the tray through the x-ray machine.. i didn't even realize what i had done until the trip home from Miami to Boston.. that time they sent the tray through and i got a LOT of attention VERY quickly.
i let them keep the card, inasmuch as it was breaking apart from years of riding in my wallet.. still...... kinda... um.. yeah..
Yea... I did kind of the same thing about 6 months after 911, but silly me... I had 20 rounds of .308 in my bag I took on the plane. It passed into the Xray scan in Atlanta and then Vegas, then back! I opened my bag at home looking for something and there sat 20 rounds of 308 match grade ammo. Every other time I fly they search my bag and sniff it with the bomb sniffer thing because its my shooting range bag and has explosives on it so there sniffer goes nuts.
Im thinking about one of those p22's just that every time I get enough in my "New gun account" I see something else I have to have, or else my "New gun account" turns into my "ammo account" or God... forgive me... gas money.
I know.... 22's are one of the best out there, fairly powerfull and cheap yet dont need ear muffs with them. Just that All the .22s I have hold more than 10 rounds.... come to think of it... I dont own a rifle that holds under 10 rounds.... most are 15, 20, 30, 40, and 75 rounders. I will buy one if I find a place to buy high cap mags, or il just make some in the machine shop.
Alright, the 10 round mags I converted to 16 rounds for my marlin 795 worked great... untill the gun turned into a jam-o-matic I think the bolt has to much friction and its just a wimmpy extracter because someone else I know sold theres to because of that. I have two Ruger 10/22's so I never use that, Just have to send it back....again... and then sell it with the repair ticket.
