Is it safe to fire 22 shorts in a New Model Single Six ? I have some backyard rodent work to do. :roll:

Straight from the Manual.

The RUGER® NEW MODEL SINGLE SIX® & BISLEY revolvers
chambered for .22 long rifle are intended to be used with any standard make of .22 long rifle, long or short ammunition in either regular, high velocity or hypervelocity
loading.

Available online if you don't have it.

Thank you. I feel stupid not looking at the manual.

Some extra cleaning to do before you go back to LRs, but that's about it.

You weren't stupid...just a little ignorant. It's not bad being ignorant, as an ignorant person genuinely wants to know and will likely ask for an answer or direction. Then they know and are no longer ignorant.

A stupid person doesn't know...doesn't care, or try to seek the knowledge to know...or worse, pretends they know.

So, it's OK to be ignorant...just DON'T be stupid.

The only handicap to using .22 shorts (besides the extra cleaning mentioned earlier) is: where do you get them?

I haven't seen a box around here in this part of South Texas in a long, long time.

Wal*Marts in Central Florida have had a few boxes of shorts on the shelves when they had .22LR at all.

You can also get other things that may shoot better like CB Caps, Colibri etc.

That's right. My experience with .22 shorts is that the accuracy in in a .22 LR chamber is sometimes less than impressive. CB "long" have worked better for me in my Single Sixes and Win M60 rifle. My 10/22 won't cycle the action but can be fired single shot with CBs. You may even have better luck in finding CB cartridges as they aren't a big seller and may be more likely to be gathering dust on a dealer's shelf. JMO, Dennis....BTW backtalk, I like your choice of barrel length, I'm a "long tom" fan myself. That oughta be a fine "rodent rooter"! :wink:
