This week we’ve got .22 pistols. Scott in Illinois, whose Colt S&W 17 K22 lost out to the Ruger Single Six in a previous fight, gets another chance this week—and not only because I think he was robbed the first time around. Scott is lucky enough to own not one but two great old .22 handguns, and his High Standard goes up against jhjimbo’s aptly named Browning Challenger.
Jhhimbo’s Browning Challenger
My .22 Browning Challenger was made in Belgium. It was purchased in 1965, and I shot on a pistol team in school with this gun. I also used it for squirrels and other small game. Lately I have been shooting in bowling-pin competitions with it at the local club. I estimate it has fired at least 30,000 rounds. I cannot remember the last time it failed to function.
