I don't own either one, but I think the Browning Buckmark and the Ruger Mark 3 outsell all others by a longshot.

I have a Buckmark and my brother has a Mark 2 or 3 I think, it's one of the older metal ones. They are both great little guns.

I really would like to get a single six at some point

Small, light and very accurate. Can be picky on ammo. Mine likes remington golden bullet (very cheap bulk ammo. hand full of FTF/FTE in 2000 rounds) and cci mini mags ( I rather shoot these, No FTEs so far, 500 rounds)

Ruger Standard - looks really good, is a solid performer, and a keepsake for years to come.

This was recommended to me by a close friend who's worked for the ATF for 30 years:

Kel-Tec PMR-30

ETA like Gonzos except I think a little longer

I approve. Thats gorgeous.

I've been looking at the ISSC 22 at Academy for a while. Looks like a glock wannabe, but i've read good things.

Can't go wrong with that Browning. I've got one and a Ruger super Single Six.

I've always wanted one of the Sig Mosquitos but I can't get over the big MOSQUITO written on the slide

The Buckmark is a great choice. It is a very proven design.

If you get anything in 22, I would get one that is dedicated and built upon that round. If you get the Walther P22 or Sig Mosquito, you run the chance of buying one that is extremely ammo sensitive, as others have said. I have heard bad things about shooting bulk ammo through P22s and Mosquitoes, and if I had to take a shot in the dark (pun intended) I would say that will be the bulk (zing!) of what you run through it.

Go with the Buckmark or a Ruger 22/45 and you will not be upset. Both will run all day long on the crappiest bulk ammo you can find and both are very accurate.

I have a Ruger 22/45 that is as reliable as they come but I probably shoot my Ruger Charger the most. It is a blast to shoot. You should also look into finding a .22 conversion for one of the pistols you already have. I have one for a Glock made by Tactical Solutions.
