I am getting the urge to look for another 22 LR pistol for practicing casual shooting and I wanted to get some idea of what other people think of what is on the market. I have 322 LR handguns which are:

Ruger LCR 22 LR revolver 8 shot -It makes a good practice gone the since I carry a Ruger LCR 22 Magnum as a backup and it is much cheaper than shooting the 22 Magnum ammo

Walter PPQ 22 - My favorite 22 handgun. It is highly reliable and only 2 ounces lighter than the PPQ M2 and is very similar to the 9 mm version. It makes a great casual shooting and practice gun. For my first 1000 rounds it only jammed about 10 times.

Ruger SR 22 - I bought this pistol because the review said it would take just about any ammo but mine seems to have a preference for CCI minimags.
Almost depends on the day, S&W M41, Buckmark Hunter, S&W 617, Ruger old model Super Single Six, Ruger new model Single-Six, Taurus TX-22 and to just look at would be like NIB Colt New Frontier .22.

Colt Frontier Scout, top one in my Avatar, I selected it and my Mom bought it just before Christmas '56 or maybe '57. A present for my dad he wore it around the various ranches we had in Idaho a little and moved to Wyoming, and settled in Montana. Scared a lot of Coyotes, killed a lot of Rattlesnakes. He died in '95 and Mom used it for home defense,. She came to live with us in 2010 or 11 and then died herself. Now it is mine. I shot it a lot before 1964, only a little since.

Mine is a Browning Challenger III that I've had for about thirty years. It's way more accurate than I am and has never once jammed or miss fired. It feels great in hand and I have a world of confidence it will hit what I'm aiming at.

I've owned several .22LR handguns from several manufacturers, but the only one I still have left is my Browning Buckmark Target. It has been flawless in operation and is a hole in a hole shooter when I do my part. It has caused the demise of many squirrels and cottontails as well. I used to use it to compete in Rimfire Silhouette competitions and it held its own against much higher priced handguns I was competing against.

What does the 22 LR mean?

Rugers', Smiths', Brownings', CZ's, Walthier's, I love them all. There are very few handguns that share the degree of influencing shooters to pursue handguns than the .22lr regardless of action or price point. My personal favorite is the High Standard Military Victor that I used to shoot bullseye with my Dad years ago. It is still bringing great memories with every squeeze!
