Hey guys, I've got my girlfriend into shooting now and she feels comfortable with a .22lr pistol, but I don't want to rent a POS unmaintained Ruger Mark III every time we go to the range. I think I have it narrowed down to a few pistols. I was looking at the Beretta Bobcat. I like the fact that it is ultra small and I could use it as a backup pocket pistol, or a possible carry gun for my girlfriend. I was also looking at the Walther P22. I've heard they are somewhat unreliable but fun to shoot, but I love the way they look. Bottom line is I would like something that my girlfriend won't be afraid to use if she were to need it when she is home alone, or maybe eventually carry (and something to plink with at the range). I would like something reliable but no more than $350 max. What do you guys think? Any other pistols I should research?
