    I have a Ruger MKII I got 20 years ago and shoot this thing all the time. I have a few bucks left over from the tax return and I'm looking for another plinker for the range after I'm finished shooting my other stuff. Not looking for anything in peticular, doesn't have to be accurate. Just fun to point and shoot. I'm considering a NAA revolver. Just wondering what is your favorite and pics are always a plus. I have everything I need, but you can always do with another 22 right?

    Very accurate. And fun to shoot.
    A little hard to clean first time, but not bad after a time or two!

    My wife loves to shoot it also!

    All of them. :supergrin:

    Seriously, Smith & Wesson Model 17. It's head and shoulders above anything else.

    All the rest are tied for second place.

    Ruger MK II stainless 5.5 bull barrel. If one hadn't been stolen I would have three now.

    My be all to end all forever favorite .22 LR handgun is the S&W M-18 (18-3) that currently resides in my dresser drawer. When it come out for a trip to the range or a day in the woods the experience is simply magic. In my hand it works miracles as bullets seem to just run into targets whether they be simple bulleyes on paper or something more satisfying like aluminum cans, etc. In single and double action shooting it is without equal. On one memorable occasion I used it in a handgun match (draw and fire) using the B-27 target (I think that is the right number). My score was 242/250. Given that I was using a borrowed Beretta 92 holster (since I did not at that time own a holster), I considered the results pretty good. There are many very nice .22 LR handguns from which one can choose. However, ever since I read Bob Melick's articles on .22 LR handguns and specifically on the S&W M-18, I have been a devoted user of this outstanding revolver. The one I now have will never be sold. It will be passed down to my children. Sincerely. Brucev.

    My favorite rimfire is a Korth revolver ever since I got it.

    I'm also guessin' that would be my favorite, if I had one... :)

    In a somewhat lesser stratosphere, my favorite .22 handgun is my old S&W 63 6-shot kit gun with 4" barrel...

    The Korth is really nice, the trigger pull seems unbelievably light but still offers positive ignition even in double action.

    Before the Korth my favorite was a K-22, before that a Hämmerli 208 (it was kind of boring, a real shooting machine!), a Walther GSP, and before that a Colt OMM.

    But besides that, I have a S&W 22A that I had bought used around the turn of the millenium so that my kids could shoot rimfires without me worrying that my good guns would suffer from rough handling. We put about 90,000 rounds through this little pistol with its 4" barrel, went throug several firing pins, a cracked frame and sight rib, but that gun is still going strong, shooting to the point and is always in the range bag. Unless my kids, that are in college now, haven't borrowed it.

    Qualitywise it is a stark contrast to the Korth but after all, both are fun to shoot.

    I envy your .22 collection, PzGren! :cool:

    I have a S&W 22S, so we sort of have something in common... :supergrin:

    I know I will get flamed for one of these but it is a toss up between my Ruger Single Six and my Mosquito.

    I don't have a picture of just the Model 34 but this young lady is wearing the S&W in the holster while shooting the Ruger MK III.
