    22 Auto Recommendations?

    I've got hte shooting bug and it's costing me a lot of cash. I currently only own a S&W M&P .40 and really enjoy shooting it. I am thinking about possibly picking up an inexpensive 22 to take to the range also. I figure I can shoot both and save a little money. Any reconmendations? I would kind of like three dot sights on it so the sight picture is simular with my defense gun. Does this make sense?

    Try a Ruger .22 Automatic. They do a fine job and last a couple of life times. Good luck.

    I have a Sig Mosquito for the same reason you want a .22 Unfortunately, my advice is to not purchase a Sig Mosquito. I went into the gun store and bought it because I think it looks the best of all the .22 handguns. Many people find that it has problems and is unreliable. I find that it is very reliable. To reduce FTF's, I have to feed it solid points. To eliminate all problems I have to feed it CCI Mini-mags. I've fired +2500 rounds through it and that's my conclusion.

    I hear that Ruger Marks II and III and Browning .22's are much less finicky about the ammo that you feed them. But my friend's father has a Ruger Mark II and the father tells me that he can't feed his Mark II HP's either.

    My $0.02 and hope that you learn something I hadn't.

    Well I bought a Ruger Mark III 22/45 . I'm waiting for it to be shipped to my gun shop. Thanks for the advice guys. I'm sure I'll be back on here when I try to put it back together after the first cleaning.

    +1 on your choice. You'll enjoy the Ruger for years to come. If you get bitten by the precision .22 handgun bug, try to test-fire a S&W Model 41. They aren't cheap nor plentiful, but they are seriously addictive.
