I say ditch the Browning idea and get a Ruger MKII. That's the best semi auto .22 handgun on earth in my oppinion.

I'm not a fan of the Ruger 22 myself. I looked at all of them recently - Unless U wanna spend a lot of cash on a S&W 41 (I think that's the model #) or the target Beretta, the Browning Buckmark and the S&W 22A seem to be the best 2 guns in that pricerange.

Ruger man that I am, I'd say the S&W Model 41 is furlongs ahead of whatever is in second place.

The Rugers are excellent pistols, no doubt about that. But the S&W is the only one made in the way the old Colts and High Standards were made. It is just simply a class act.

+1 the old Smith model 41s are the cats meyow when it comes to .22 autoloaders

In the revolvers its hard to beat the bearcats & single sixes....

Yes, they are nice - but are also pricey - They are above the pricerange of a Buckmark. So, in the lower price range, the Buckmark is probably one of the better 22s. If I get a 22 eventually, it will probably be a Buckmark. I don't want to shell out $600-$800 for a 22

While I love the P99, I do not think I would get a P22 - It looks like they have fixed some of the problems of the early ones. But, I think its a crap shoot on those gun - whether U get a problem 1 or not. It is my understanding that the slides are made of zinc too. And, I've heard that Walther doesn't even make the gun themselves - they have farmed out the work to another company.

My favorite 22 pistol is the 4" Ruger MKI Standard model. Mine has been great and it ran me about $135 used in very good condition. Regards, Richard :D

I learned to shoot with the old ruger standard areally great gun I thenbought a 6 7/8" Mark 1 target Ruger. It shot better and had an infinately better trigger but was huge. When I found a match Target Colt in 4 1/2" I swapped in both rugers and some cash and had a real great shooter in a decent size. :smt116

Any of the Browning Buck Marks - there are at least 35 various models of this fine .22 handgun.

Here's the "Camper" model (retails for around $225 or so):

My two Ruger Mk II's, both 23 years old, have survived myself and my four kids. They have thrown enough bricks down-range to build a pretty good building!! Yet they are still as tight and accurate as when I bought them. Great guns!

If I remember correctly, U spent a lot of money afterwards customizing that thing, right?
$45 for the compensator
$18 for the sear (which is still sitting on my ironing board cause the gun hasn't jammed in the last 2500 rounds since i've cleaned it)
$60 for 3 more mags
$90 for the scope

Never mind, then. I was thinking of someone on another board who replaced the receiver and barrel w/ some custom stuff - costed him several hundred dollars...
