      Oh, I want some cheap FUN!!!!

      Ok, what I really need hear is a very sensitive touch. I want a .22 semi that has a little bit of a kick, enough to reach the senses. I'm thinking maybe the Bersa .22 with the 3.5 barrel that weighs 18 ounces. However, I like the looks of the Beretta Neos long barrel with its accuracy. Call me cheap, but budgets have to be met. I would love to shoot them all, but I know they all wouldn't satisfy what I am looking for in a fun gun to shoot. What do you all think? Is a smaller better to give you a little kick or is accuracy give the better high? I have a Ruger convertible now, but don't get much of a high from it. Don't get me wrong it is a beautiful piece, it just doesn't engage the senses. Hopefully, a semi auto .22 will.

      Try a Ruger Mk III, priced ok and will hold up for many many years. The tear down for cleaning will seem a pain in the ass, but with a couple of cleanings will become easy and no big deal. Another is the browning and there are others.

      Shoot safe and have fun doing it.

      Love my Ruger SR22. MSRP is $399 but mine was priced around $320. I saw them on sale for 2 something this weekend. Shop around. Tear down for cleaning is easy and the size is similar to the SR9c. Similar, not exact. Don't have an SR9c so I cant compare to the recoil factor.

      I bought the SR22 to help lose my flinch with the 92FS and that has helped greatly. Putting a full mag inside 8 inches at 10 yds now. Havent been doing this long so I am impressing myself. Maybe only myself but I have to start somewhere. My problem out further is not seeing the center of target. Need a bigger black dot for these old eyes.

      The Bersa Thunder 22 is an awesome shooter and you would be impressed by how accurate it can be.

      I have both the SR9c and the SR22. Both are very similar and super fun to shoot.

      you have a ruger convertible - try some CCI 22WMR to get some kick from recoil - and the 22WMR rounds are more accurate out of the R convertible than the 22LR

      the lighter the gun the more recoil
      how about the beretta 21 bobcat at 11.5 oz. - lots of fun but it is not a long range gun

      I sesond the Ruger SR22. It lets you know you are shooting a real gun. Accurate, too.

      If you are a Glock fan take a look at an ISSC M22.
      Wife had one and has had no issues with it.

      Thank you for your response. I have always considered the SR 22, but it is soooo small. I have a hard time thinking it would give much of a kick. Ruger is incredible if you can appreciate the way they make their guns. Very heavy, beautifully sculpered, but sometimes cumbersome. I too have a SR9 and really can't say anything bad about the pistol. But it is a 9mm. and has a substantial kick to it. You have probably named the ideal practice vehicle for what I really need, the SR 22.
      Thanks,
      Sandibeach.

      SR22p is perfect for the range, i gave $309.00 for one and bought 5 extra mags from the Ruger store. It is accurate and runs flawlessly on any 22 LR ammo, after 8 months of use it has never failed to fire or jammed, it and the SP101-22 always go along when i go to the range, they are a lot of fun for a vary low cost.

      +1 for the Bersa Thunder 22. I love mine. It is fun to shoot, reliable and accurate. I have numerous 22 pistols but I would say it is the most fun to shoot.
      Just one man's $.02!!
