    I am looking for a .22LR handgun for recreational target shooting and small game hunting. I really don't want to spend too much money and was looking at the local gun shop today. I found a ruger autoloader i think it was the p512. Does anyone have any experience with this gun? Also I saw the S&W 22A, which i have heard is a peice of crap that loves to jam, can anyone confirm? But any info you have on cheap decent .22LR guns would be appreciated, by cheap i mean around $200-$250 new.

    The Ruger Mark series is pretty much king of the cheap and accurate .22lr category.

    Ruger Single Six revolver is also pretty nice. It's .22LR, and you can just swap out the cylinder for .22 Winchester Magnum. :naughty:

    I think it goes for about $175.

    it probably isn't good for hunting, but the Taurus PT22 can be had brand new for about $180. if you aren't dead set on a handgun, the Ruger 10/22 would also be a good choice. Wal-Mart has them less than $200.

    I'd recommend a Walther p22. It's a bitch to field strip, but it's been very accurate. I put 400 rounds through it before cleaning and the 3 failures I had I attribute to ammo.

    i wish they would just make a .22lr pistol that "looks" cool..

    the walther p22 is the closest thing to that but its too fucking small...

    something like a 1911 style .22 would be great but in an affordable price..

    ive seen those .22 1911 pistols.. almost a grand? :ugh:

    You can get conversion kits for lots of guns, I almost bought one for my G23.

    i prefer the browning buckmark over the ruger because of the grip angle, they'd both be fine choices
