    Good looking 22s.

    The only 22 handgun I have at present is a S&W 17-5 4". They're a hoot to shoot, I would like another 22.

    Depends on why I'm running.

    If I'm running into an area where there are things that need to be shot, I'm doing it like Anderson says.
    Hits per second win races.

    A faster burning powder tend to give snappier recoil.
