I know everything costs more, especially since Brandon got in, but even before then this was happening: Expensive .22 revolvers. What I mean is, when I was a young lad, lo those many years ago, .22s where always less expensive than the same gun in centerfire. For example, a Single Six was not near as expensive as a Blackhawk, nor was a DA Smith .22 near as expensive as it's centerfire counterpart. I know that there are "cheap" .22s, ie the Wrangler and Heritage, but they look and feel cheap to me. And for a inexpensive .22 DA revolver, forget it. I don't guess they exist anymore. Last time my local dealer had a GP or SP in .22 they were just as expensive as the centerfire version. Now I know there is just as much metal in the comparable guns, but dang it, there was just as much metal in them when I was younger too! And they were always less money. I been hankering for a nice .22 DA revolver, either Colt, Smith, or Ruger, but dang if I want to spend $600 up to almost a thousand bucks! I just can't see it. Just my rant for today.
