I just wanted to get the aim point. Now that I have I can use it like I use my other "fun" guns: shooting at empty plastic bottles, rotating targets, doing drive-bys, possibly hunting rabbits, stuff like that.
Now, on the other hand, my Kimber of Oregon Model 82 single shot 22 LR target rifle, sights set up like in the photo (we are talking Olympic grade here, dude!) I use for what it was intended: targets, out to 200 meters, using Eley-primed target ammunition such as, well, Eley.
The AR-7 (that is, Henry's version, the "US Survival Rifle") is something for when my plane goes down in the Northern Ontario boglands, so I have something with which to shoot the mosquitoes and thereby have something to eat.
Of course, I also have the .22 LR Marlin Model 7N (7 shot magazine, bolt action), with the scope zeroed to 35 yards. That's another nice gun for rabbits and other small game.
Please note that not a single one of these is a "tactical twenty-two." I gave up on spray-'n'-pray a long time ago -- about the time I had to buy my OWN ammunition instead of having my rich Uncle Sam provide it.
