I love High Standards too. I need to take more pictures, but here's one...my Victor:
Another Walther, a PPK-L .22 (the "L" is for "lightweight"- alloy frame):
And, the sad tale. A Winchester 52B Sporter.
It's a sad tale because it's a "real" one, made in 1948, not one of the recent Japanese made ones. Someone drilled and tapped it for the scope that's on there now (B&L BalVar), and it has additional holes from a previous base. Collectors would have heart attacks.
But it cost less than a Kimber or similar, and I think is at least as nice.
At least I don't mind taking it out and shooting it like I might a pristne one.
There are some more goodies but I don't have postable pictures.
Maybe this thread inspired me, but I had a therapeutic .22 session this morning before shooting the carry guns.
I shot my High Standard Flite King (.22 short), S&W 63 kitgun, and one of the Browning takedown .22 Autos.
That was fun, and I'll have to do that more often. Except for the occasional offhand practice off the deck with the supressed 77-22, I've been shooting just my carry guns. Been that way for a few years now.
A little fun shooting now and then is good for a guy.
I get a LOT of use out of the supressed rifle. I honestly bought it just as plaything, but I use it more often that anything.
I "need" a pistol, or a .22 can. An integrally supressed gun is usually a little quieter, but a can is more versatile.
If you get one, remember- It seems like most people who get a supressed .22 go through more .22 ammo in the first year than they have in the past several years combined.
