Lots of choices out there.

Ruger 22/45
Sig Sauer Mosquito
Smith and Wesson M&P22
Ruger SR22

You can't go wrong with these choices, and yes there are many other great 22 pistols out there. Sounds like you need to make a trip to gun shop and hold a few

A lot are great. Some are not. Just find the style that you like and make sure that it has good reviews. Those are just some of the dozens available.

Revolver-Ruger Single Six.
Semi-I like the walther p22.

Either way, 22s are a good time to shoot, can literally shoot all day for $20 (when you can actually find ammo).

I bet. I love shooting but everytime I pull the trigger on my 40, 9, 357, 380 I see dolla dolla bills flying out the window.

I'm a revolver fan so I don't have much to contribute to this thread.

I've shot a few different semi's though and they were all just as fun as the next. I can't say I've seen any of them screw up more or less than the next one.

The Ruger and browning seem to be the conseus best..... I've shot the Sig and it was fun but pretty ammo particular. I think a lot of the ones that look like a traditional semiautomatic tend to be a little more Ammo particular.

They sorta have the feel of shooting a 1911 because of the grip angle. I'd definitely recommend them to a 1911 shooter.

For a plastic gun man I'd get one of the newer plastic .22's

Agree. My dad has the ruger and I have a buck mark camper. Both are good. Depends all on preference.
