This is going to be fun! I've burned up 100 rounds so far today and would have gone through an entire brick if it hadn't been so stinking cold out. The bulk pack Remington ammo had one or two light strikes per cylinder, but the Thunderbolt worked flawlessly. I bought it ostensibly for inexpensive practice as an understudy for my .38 LCR. Five hundred rounds of .22 are about the same price as 50 rounds of .38; ten times the trigger pulls for the same cost. I figured that the cost of the .22 LCR was equivalent to about 1500 rounds of .38 special ammo. I know it would take me quite a while to burn up 1500 rounds of .38 simply because it isn't terribly pleasant to shoot from the LCR. On the other hand, 1500 rounds of .22 are going to go pretty quick and be an absolute riot. In the long run, I guess I realize that it isn't going to be cheaper because I am going to be shooting more. But that can't be all that bad, can it?
