I could get along with most of these choices pretty well.

To be forthcoming, I have a pmr30, 351pd, single six convertible, mkIV... but the old K-22 just feels right. I'm after a s&w 48, and would like to get a single ten, lcrx 3" 22lr(w/custom kydex chest rig... the ultimate lightweight package), and an adjustable sighted bearcat(the ones posted are awesome).

I'm kind of intrigued that no one has posted about their lcrx 3" 22lr, since that's exactly what they were designed for.

Surprised to see a lack of S&W 34's too.

It's cool to see what everyone has a taste for.

KEEP EM COMING FOLKS!

LCRX 3" 22wmr would be cool with 8 rds. I'd almost say perfect. Wonder why Ruger couldn't get that done? Kinda disappointed. They would've killed with that one.

I had a single 10 for a very short time. It was a pain to load. Now I have single six with both cylinders. Blue is considerably lighter than the stainless.

Why was it a pain to load? I assume the holes are closer together? Seems like it would be easier to load multiples if the holes were closer together. Like a 617.

Plus, you load it less.

Feels like a win/win?

I had an old H&R 9-shot. Should've never sold it.

Depends on what you consider a 'kit gun', but . . .

. . . my definition is that of a handgun that does not get in the way and demonstrates enough accuracy to get the job done. For me, a favorite 'hi-miler' is my Erma Excam RX-22. It was designed to mimic the Walther PPK and does a pretty job I think. Here shown with a KGP-69, also a rimfire.



The frame is zamak (I think) but I've owned it since 1981 and have shot and carried it a lot in those years. Just large enough to hold securely for better aim but never got in the way. Its one of 'my favorite top 5 handguns ever'.



My biggest regret with this one - not purchasing the Miniature Micro Machine fully adjustable rear sight. I wasn't sure the unit would fit the slot so never did, but I wonder if I missed the boat on that. The sight, when found, now goes for well over the cost of this one today.

Well...S&W M63-3" 8 shot has gone along on quite a few woods walks and hunts



PP in 22lr. is accurate and very reliable with CCI Minimags...



and this makes a good field holster...



Haven't purchased a holster for this one yet but its got a history, was one I gave my Dad years before his death, reclaimed and given adjustable sights etc. its one sweet shooter too.

To me, this is the most interesting subject. I spend the majority of my time in the outdoors, and it's always interesting to see what others consider for their kit.

Thanks for the pictures, and it's great to see the holster options as well.

My Single-Ten would work too, but I choose the Bearcar only because it was smaller. I must have a good loading system system worked out, because I can eject spent cases like lighting and reload like thunder! My Single-Ten gets pretty darn hot unless I slow myself sown. And Man-O-Man. Is it accurate!

To me the term 'Kit Gun' brings a revolver to mind; must be the traditionalist in me.
The NAA micro-revolvers would fit in any 'kit', too bad most of the 22LR models arent much useful. I wish they would make the 22LR on the bigger Maggie frame, or better yet, make one 1/2 way between the current model and a S&W 63, bet they would sell and be Waayyy better than the old H&R and Iver Johnson mini revolvers.
But then maybe that would be the Ruger LCR?
I found the smaller the gun the harder to shoot well, even if it has the inherent accuracy. Tried my Iver Johnson TP-22 for a while, too small, it fell deep in my pocket, hard to retrieve and too small for a real holster. I like the grip to sit right at the top of the pocket, secure and mostly protected, yet easily accessible. And Im not one for throwing a gun into a tackle box though Ive heard stories of some to have claimed to (myth?). So my SR22 isnt what comes to mind but it fulfills the role very well.
Im not a small guy (6'1" x 200ish #) but I know some of you really big guys can have a Ruger Sgl.Six fit you proportionately to me with a Bearcat; it is a personal thing.

In my kit out hunting, I want a gun that causes more than itches on Mr Bear.

Humm wonder if the brand began with an "R" and the Type with a "G"?

Another vote for the Bersa or the 22/45 4" barrel

I already posted my bearcat that I usually have close and always when clearing property or in the barn for rats.
But this was my grandfathers version of a kit gun. Always in the glove box of his truck or his tackle box ( a big fisherman). A second was beside his bed. I have both now. I remember him letting me shoot it on a trip when we were out in the middle of nowhere bream fishing. First handgun id shot.

I totally agree that would a great move for Ruger. Another move that would be even more preferable to me would be a S&W Model 63 in 22 WMR.
