Sometimes we all just get a hankering for something. I got a hankering for a .22 revolver. I wanted one I could carry when I was outside doing stuff around the place for varmints and such instead of something centerfire. I have .22 autos, but I wanted to be able to use shot shells, too, and I wanted a lighter package.

I looked at a Taurus 94. Trigger pull was horrendous! So was the price. There was a pawn shop on the way home, so I stopped. They had this little CA Pathfinder in the case, used. Stainless six-shot with a 3" barrel. It really was what I was looking for, and the price was reasonable - $189. The action was slick and the trigger crisp.

Now outfitted with rubber grips and stuffed into a Fobus holster, it goes with me almost every day. I've put over a brick of ammo through it without complaint. Its not a tack driver, but will shoot 2" freehand at 10 yds. Good enough for what I wanted it for. Company says it was made in '84.

Yes, pictures, etc. I wandered up on an older Taurus double action revolver at a gun show a while back. After paying too damn much it followed me home. It is not what you would call tight but dang will it shoot! I can hit spent shotgun shells out on the range at any distance I can see them well at will. And I don't really shoot all that well so I am pretty happy with that. Above all it is just a good plinker, and I guess that makes it worth what I paid. And just try and find a good .22 revolver under $200 these days!
