    Browning Buckmark all the way. I currently own five (5) models. Perfect in every way.

    Most Ruger designs are too heavy for me. But you can't go wrong with Ruger. I just don't care for it.

    I have a Mountain Eagle I have owned since they came out. Polymer frame. Great sites. Very lightweight. Holds 20, that's right, 20 rounds. Functions great. Don't know what they are selling for now, but I'm into mine way under 3 bills. Same holster as the Desert Eagle, if you happen to have one of those. You can get them in a 4" and 6" bbl. Mine is the 6".

    Both my Walther P22 and my ISSC M22 have been great pistols. They are both accurate and reliable. I can just about feed them anything and they work.

    I used to own a Ruger MK II and it was nice also but taking it apart and putting it back together was a pain.

    30 mins + PER pistol is a little rediculous if you ask me.

    High velocity ammo is required, but with 10 rds of hot velocitor, I don't feel underarmed if I had to carry this little pistola.

    I bought a ruger 22/45 about a month ago, and I love it. 500 rounds through, no malfunctions and extremely accurate. Very fun to shoot.

    Browning buck mark target gold. Mine has well over 50k rounds down the pipe. She needs lots of locktite these days but still runs 100%. Bought it new on my 21st bday in 1995.

    I cant find that SS Ruger 22/45 ...... is it the MKIII Hunter or is it a 22/45? Can you tell me the model? It doesnt show up on the Ruger website. In fact I cant find ANY Ruger 22/45 in stainless.

    Thanks.....looks great

    If your looking for a good reliable 22 caliber Semi auto pistol you have to look no farther than the Ruger MK line. I have the Ruger MKIII 22/45 target model and just like others who have shot these pistols for years have only good things to say about the Rugers proven design. There 10/22 rifles aren't to bad either.:supergrin:

    The 2 main differences between the MkIIIs and the 22/45s is that the 22/45 has a polymer lower and the original MK is metal. The grip angle, too. The MK's grip angle is closer to a Glock, a more severe angle. The 22/45's grip angle emulates the 1911's. I prefer the angle of my metal MkIII Target with its 6 7/8" barrel

    The postings above will show you that there are only a few .22 pistols to stay away from. On the positive side, Ruger will give you the most versatility and dependability. There are plenty of parts and upgrades for Mark I, II, and III, and the 22/45. Pawn shops are a good place to find bargains (and overpriced guns-be sure to haggle). Feel the difference in the grip angle between the Marks and the 22/45- you have a choice. Want a particular barrel length? several to choose from in all those models.Want aftermarket grips, springs, etc? lots to choose from out there. My fun-gun is a MKII, 6 7/8 barrel, Hogue grip. For yourself, pick & choose until you are happy!
