She Told Me To Get Out of the House

What a Saturday! She was having a group of friends over for lunch and a meeting. She told me to be gone and stay gone. Well, okay then.

I packed up early and went to the range. Took lunch with me. Shot some of mine, shot some other things. Had a lot of fun with some .22s that a friend had brought out. One of the most interesting and fun things I got to shoot was a Smith & Wesson M&P 15-22.

Built from the design phase as a .22, it's not an AR-15, but it looks, feels, and has controls like one. Shoots and cycles with standard .22 ammo. Plenty accurate and a good way to get rid of all the .22 ammo in your stockpile. I had seen them in the shops and at the shows. This was the first time I had gotten to shoot one.

I don't foresee getting one, but anytime one is available, I'll bring my own ammo.

The last time I was deemed to be underfoot it cost thousands and took me through six states...sigh.

All the .22 in your stockpile???
Then you have to find more!!

Which is getting easier...
Kind of.

I stumbled into one of those earlier this year. Put a cheap red dot on the thing and it's like cheating.

The only problem I have found is replacing the 300+ rounds the kids go through any time I hand them the rifle.

My M&P15/22 is one of my absolutely favorite guns to shoot, and invaluable addition as an "understudy" for my Big Girl Gun.
