    High Standard 22LR 9 shot revolver
    This thing is probably 35 years old or so....at least.

    That is what nignogs would buy to commit murders with and then throw out.

    (Seriously. High Standard is a manufacturer of Saturday night specials.)

    Just checked the barrel.....rifling is almost entirely gone. I wonder how many
    rounds he put through this thing while crushing Pabst Blue Ribbon cans on
    his forehead?

    Are we thinking of a different High Standard? I've shot a few .22 High Standards, Trophy and Supermatic or Duramatic IIRC, and they were great with sub inch groups at 25 yards. Also I'm pretty sure the OSS and later CIA used them along with some special forces groups didnt they?

    Doesn't the other side of the barrel say something like "NATO 49'er" or somesuch?

    Gotta love the Ruger Single-Six "inspired" styling and "innovative" use of what would be the shell eject rod to assist opening the cylinder.

    I can only imagine what a joy it is to operate double-action.

    Load it up with some subsonic ammo and go to town on the local grackle population! No license, no limit in Texas!

    Hi-point and Hi-Standard (aka High Standard) are completely different companies.

    I was kind of confused since I wasnt really sure if "High Standard" was the same company as "Hi-Standard" (as its stamped on their .22 pistols.)

    Is there a Hi-Standard? Cause I was almost POSITIVE that my uncle has a 'high standard' piece of shit 9mm.

    You're thinking of hi point.

    High standard is an older manufacturer best known for their semi automatic .22's http://www.highstandard.com/ They have an excellent reputation in that area. Their automag line I believe isn't looked upon as highly.

    Yeah it's a NATO 49er.

    There's almost no rifling in this thing which makes sense considering I've
    NEVER been able to hit anything with it :)

    I was doing some research and there were a few branches of government
    that used suppressed semi-autos. Actually according to Wiki they're still
    in the arsenals....
