is far more to the point than is a bull barreled Ruger. When you have no real power, and it's not shtf, it's just a game, so why burden yourself unnecessarily, hmm? Normally, the reason is not admitted. Guys can't SHOOT a 6" long, 18 oz 2214 well enough. :) It's a superbly accurate little pistol, with a very solidly mounted barrel, nice trigger and sights. It's not at all difficult to deliver 2.5" groups with it at 25 yds, Weaver, and 1.5" groups are definitely feasible, with the gun's "favorite" ammo, and a braced firing position. Since that's easily 5x as good as can be done with a sling shot and marbles (much less rocks) and since so many THINK that they can stalk close enough to use the sling, why bother with "better" accuracy than the 2214 has, hmm? :) Because they CAN'T stalk at ALL well, for one reason, and they can't shoot worth a crap for another.

You had better wash that crystal ball GK. You are misjudging us. As for the Smith, I really don't like it. How about a Colt Woodsman Sport Model or a High Standard HD Military, both with 4.5in barrels. They are in the gunbox.

why lug around that much gun, for no

more than can be accomplished with a .22 pistol? If the Smith had an external hammer and a 1911 type safety "speed lever" it would be a perfect little pc.

I just don't like the way the 2214 looks.
Anything else?
My 22a is alot lighter than the slabside.I don't like that one either.
The slabside is a heavy gun.I confess to getting a wobbly front sight after a few hundred rounds.Getting better though.
More groups-fewer patterns.:D
Practice,practice,practice.

Personally I don't like either the Woosman or the Smith, but I am happy with my Ruger Mk II. Personal preference.

The Smith .22 sometimes burns shooters hands as the ejection port is right near the shooters knuckle. And if they have big knuckles or authritus, it will hurt that to. It also because of it's light weight, does not have the practical shooting accuracy of a Ruger .22. Even a thin barrel Ruger .22 MKII. And we all know, except stupekid, that if you don't have good practical accuracy, then the weapon isn't worth sh*it.

yeah, I like the grip on the 22/45 better than the MkII, but hey, they're both good guns
