    I am about to buy a Target 22. Some of the decent ones seem to be the Beretta Neos, S&W 22A, Browning Buckmark and Ruger Mark III. Also, Sig makes the mosquito and Walther sells the P22.

    I have looked at all of them and decided I wil buy a Ruger Mark III 22/45 (it has a traditional grip instead of the space gun grip of the plain Ruger Mark III's). The Sig and Walther are fun for plinking, but supposedly not as accurate as the target 22s. Most of the target 22s have all black sights. I don't like that. I want white dot sites. Ruger makes one model of the 22/45 w/ a 4" barrel and fixed white dot sights. The Rugers are a pain to disassemble compared to other brands. But, its what I've settled on. There is one at my local shop for $221. I hope to have it in a couple of months.

    I have 3 semi auto 22's that I really like: Browning Buckmark, Ruger MKIII 22/45, and Walther P22. However, ease of disassembly is a quality that none of the 3 possess.

    Shipwreck: My 22/45 is stainless with the 5.5" slab barrel. It is more accurate than my 3.4" P22, but only marginally so. The P22 is very accurate, especially considering the barrel length. I think the main reason is the factory SA trigger on the P22 is better.

    But you might be happier with the 22/45. After all, the Walther P22 is designed after the much hated P99.

    Jeepgirl: I don't know why .22 semis are so hard to field strip? Shouldn't be that way.

    I am seriously thinking about getting the new FNP .45. I own the FNP-9 and really like it. If the .45 is as good, I'll be buying one of them!

    Thanks for the info. I did shoot the P22 one time, but it was after shooting a 9mm for a while, and the lower recoil was throwing me off. I couldn't shoot it well.

    As a whole, I never shoot sub 4" barrelled guns as well. I don't know if its only the sight radius, or a combination of that and the longer barrel. But, its something I've noticed with any gun I have shot. My P99c is very accurate, but past 15 feet, my groups open up where as they do not open up with my fullsize until I start shooting past 21 feet.

    That's why I am resistant to but the P22....

    Damn you said my FNP 45. That'll hopefully be my 07 birthday gift. I hope i can get it for 600 flat or less. Hopefully less. Who ever buys this gun before I do in central Florida better lock it up.
    Another piece is the Stroger Cougar. I'm trying to get my sister to get it so i can pretty much own it without buying one. And if anyone owns a Stroger Cougar tell me about it.

    in rifle either the marlin 1895gs 45-70 or thompson contender icon in .308....in handgun most likely a colt defender for carry or possibly kimber cdp 2 and a ruger gp100 in stainlessfor home,its going to be a good year.
