    for what? Hunting? target shooting? self defense?

    Answer could range from a Encore to a Walther.

    I have a P22 that I am happy with. Make sure you get a new one, the older models were poops.

    Long barrel Ruger Hunter mk3 or a Sig Trailside target. Anyone hear anything about the 10/22 pistol yet?

    For a cheap plinker I like my S&W 22a. It has an aluminum frame, lifetime warranty, easy take down, and should be about $200 in stores.

    In that case I change my answer and say get a cz75 and a kadet kit to shoot .22's. The conversion kit costs more than a 22a though :big grin:

    Ruger Mark III. I've put about 3k rounds of the Federal value packs though mine, not a single problem. Scary accurate too. Of all the guns I own, the Ruger is one of my favorites.

    Smith and Wesson M41 are also very accurate, as are the Buckmarks. And if you knew exactly what you were looking for, the High Standard are sought after and highly regarded as well by many bullseye shooters.

    Get them all! :)

    I'd like to change my answer one more time, go to the range, rent some guns and see what you like. Try to find some shooters in your area from here or another forum and try theirs out too.

    I second that choice. if you want something that'll easily convert to a big boy caliber, CZ is hard to beat. My buddy shot one at a recent .22 match and the CZ didn't miss a beat.

    Or you could just buy a 1911 or glock and get a Ceiner .22 kit! :x:

    from having shot a Browning Buckmark, and owning a ruger MKIII hunter 22/45, I'd get the browning if I had to do it over again, it's just more comfortable for me. The Hunter is awesome in it's own way, and I'll never get rid of it, and just get a buckmark down the road. It can shoot better than me, and should easily be able to do 1-2 inches at 50 ft. It's a little muzzle heavy, but if you want to get a 1911, the grip frame is similar, as are the controls.

    In the world of affordable 22 pistols(we'll say under $4-500), the rule goes something like this...

    If you want the gun to be reliable, very accurate, eat anything you give it, and last you a life time... buy a buck mark or a ruger.


    If you want the gun to look cool, and everything else doesn't really matter, buy something else.

    I'll second the 22/45 idea. I had one before and it worked flawless plus it was very accurate.

    22/45 Target - dead on accurate, reliable, eats any ammo I give it but I still curse my mother trying to take it apart and put it back together to clean

    The Hunter is probably just as accurate, and equally as difficult to take apart.

    I put a Houge handall grip on the 22/45 frame since I don't really ever plan to take it apart again until I start to get failures of some sort.

    I like the picture. :naughty:

    My wife and I rented one of those (not sure if it was the exact same model) and experienced lots of failure to fires with Remington rounds. Do ranges clean their guns...ever? :ugh:

    The good part is I'm now on the hunt for a .22 lr for her. :mamoru:
