    I'd just as soon have my Beretta 21A Bobcat as any of them.

    I have an EAA Witness (Tangfolio in Italy) 9mm with a 22lr conversion kit. My senior citizen wife warms up on the 22lr and then switches to the 9mm. On our most recent outing just yesterday she placed 2 groups of 10 rounds each in an eight inch group rapid fire at 7 yards with the 9mm. I really believe the training with the 22 paid off. I pity the BG who enters our house. He will be thoroughly ventilated.

    Hello Genesis (Don),,,

    You are welcome for the list,,,
    I can't take complete credit for it though.

    I started the list a year ago over at thefiringline.com,,,
    Then the other forum members kept sending me more pairs to add to the list.

    It was/is quite an interesting project.

    It is a personal passion of mine though,,,
    I love collecting matching pairs in rimfire and centerfire.

    I currently own:

    Taurus 25-PLY and Taurus 22-PLY
    CZ75B in 9mm & CZ-75B Kadet in .22 LR
    Bersa Thunder 380 & Bersa Thunder 22 LR
    S&W Model 15 in .38 Special & S&W Model 18 in .22 LR
    S&W Model 36 in .38 Special & S&W Model 34 in .22 LR
    Colt Trooper Mk-III in .357 and Colt Trooper Mk-III in .22 LR
    Beretta Cheetah Model 85 in .380 & Beretta Cheetah Model 87 in .22 LR

    To fill out my personal collection goals I still need:

    S&W Model 14 in .38 Special & S&W Model 17 in .22 LR
    Colt Officers Model Match in .38 Special & Colt Officers Model Match in .22 LR
    S&W Model 10 in .38 Special & S&W Model 45 in .22 LR (Probably won't ever see a Model 45 I can afford).

    Anyways I'm glad you enjoyed the list,,,
    Perhaps you'll collect a pair or two.

    Aarond

    Have a firestorm22 (Bersa) that is a cheaper practice vs of the Bersa 380. Great sized 22.

    Because you said "cross training" I voted SIG Mosquito

    It's not at all my best .22.

    I shoot the M&P 22 alot at the range. It is very cheap to shoot and very close to my other semi auto's. My other semi auto's are the M&P 9FS, M&P 9c, M&P 40.

    Same here, especially since I started carrying the BT 9UC instead of the BT 380s. One of the guys I shoot with has about got me talked into a Ruger 10/22 rifle.

    UPDATE: I ended up doing two things - I picked up the Smith & Wesson M&P .22 - I find it's action to be similar enough to pistols from S&W, Glock and Springfield to be a legitimate "first-time handgun experience". I also picked up an AK-47 .22lr clone that works just like my real-life AK.

    I confess I am a big fan of .22 handguns and use of .22s as surrogates for major centerfire guns. I have a couple of Ruger MK II & MK IIIs, a 22/45 and .22 conversions for the CZ-75, SIG 226, 229 and 1911. I think the best bang for the buck is the Ruger 22/45. The most accurate is my Marvel No. 1 kit for the 1911. All are fun and very useful for training.

    For those who like revolvers, both single action and double action, Ruger and S&W make .22s that make great for centerfire revos. I love practicing double action trigger work with my .22s. Minimal recoil and minimal cost for very good training.

    Having owned a Colt Woodsman years ago.I had learned how to appreciate a .22.Just getting back into shooting and have bought 2 .22's. I now own a Beretta Neos 6"and a S&W M&P22.

    They are both easy to clean and as accurate as I am plus I have less than $600 in both

    Updated .22lr Pistol Poll

    I love both the Ruger SR22P and the S&W M&P 22. I especially appreciate being able to buy 1600 rds of CCI mini-mag in a dry storage ammo box at WalMart for $98.00 - a very economical way to get in some quality range time.

    I have the Beretta Neos 6" SS and it is a great gun.Both accurate and easy to clean and not fussy.

    I also own the S&W S&P22 and it and my little dog and lovely bride are the top joys of my life.I was going w/SR22 but the feel was cramped in my hands.Easy strip,very accurate for 4.5" barrel and it is going to get me to swap my SR9 for an M&P9 Pro.

    Then no more trading ever,honest dear.

    I love my SR22! I bought it because I love my SR40C but I'm too cheap to shoot it as much as I want. So far every time I go out I shoot about 200 rds of .22 and a box of .40.

    I've used the High Standard and Star .22 caliber target pistols owned by family and friends, both have been accurate, reliable, well-made, and available at reasonable prices when found in the used market.

    Well, since it technically wasn't an option, I submit the Ruger MKII. Voted other, although I guess I could've voted Ruger MKIII. Love those little Rugers.

    While I really like the Buckmark and MKIII, they are more target guns than training guns. I voted for the SR-22, as we now also have the P-89 and P-90. All controls are the same with all three, all are SA/DA, all have decockers and most importantly to me, all are easy to clean.
