Default 22 auto or revolver

Shot an old H&R 922!! Didn't do bad for a 60 year old gun!! But boy I sure loved the 6 dollar price for 50/22 shells!! So I decided I would start shopping for a 22!! Like to stay in the 300 to 350 range! New or used!! Was wondering should I go revolver or semi-auto and what mid level gun should I shop for!! Strictly range gun!! I have other guns for other uses!!

I have a heritage single action revovler in 22 LR it will also shoot 22 shorts and 22 long. I can even buy a new cylender that lets it shoot 22 mag (you can buy guns with the packaged deal that have both cylenders). I paid $160 for the one I have brand new. They make a few different models of them some with the old cowboy sights some with the new adjustable sights, also you can get them in a range of barrel legnths and they even make some with the old bird head grips.

I can't speak for all the other models but the model I have has the 5" barrel and the fixed sights. It shoots pretty well for what I paid for her good 3" groups on my good days. I haven't had any problems out of it but I didn't buy it for a target gun I bought it to carry for snakes and what not while I'm mowing.

Tauras also makes some pretty nice revolvers I've been wanting one of there tracker series revolvers in 17HMR.

I know you're a revolver kinda guy. I'm betting you'd have more fun with a revolver. In your price range for revolvers, I bet you can find a Hi-Standard Sentinel for around $200 (9 rounds), a Taurus model 94 for $300 (9 rounds), an EAA Bounty Hunter for $300 (single action, 8 rounds), a Rexio Comanche I for $250-300 (7 rounds), a Taurus model 970 Tracker for $300 (7 rounds), a Charter Arms Target Pathfinder for $300 (6 rounds), Ruger Bisley $325 (SA, 6 rounds), Ruger New Bearcat $365 (SA, 6 rounds), Ruger New Model Single-Six $350 (SA, 6 rounds), Ruger SP101 $500 (6 rounds, I only say that cuz I know you like your SP101 in 357), or a Uberti 1873 Stallion $330 (SA, 6 rounds).

I'm sure all those manufacturers have various models they offer, those are just the ones I happened to click on. I really couldn't tell you anything aut any of them as I've never owned any or shot any of them. But we all know Ruger and Uberti are good brands. Taurus and Charter are supposedly good too.

For semi autos in your price range, look for Kel-Tec PLR-22 $300 (26 rounds! Not "traditional" looking), S&W M&P22 $315 (12 rounds), Beretta U22 Neos $200 (10 rounds), Bersa Tunder 22 $200 (10 rounds), Browning Buckmark 5.5 Field $350 (10 rounds), Chiappa 1911-22 $225 (10 rounds, 1911 style), Firestorm 22LR DA $230 (10 rounds), Norninco M-93 $200 (10 rounds), Olympic Arms Whitney Wolverine $230 (10 rounds), Phoenix Arms HP22 $100-150!!! (10 rounds), Ruger Mark III or 22/45 about $230 (10 rounds both), Sig 1911-22 $325 (10 rounds, 1911 style), Sig Mosquito $300 (10 rounds), S&W 22A $200 (10 rounds), Walther P22 $270 (10 rounds), Taurus PT-22 $200 (8 rounds).

I mean the list is endless. There are hundreds of affordable 22 pistols. I recommend just go to some LGSes or gun shows and hold some. Try them it. See what feels good.

I will say I have the Bersa Tunder 22. Not a terrible gun. Definitely fun. Get some failures sometimes but that's expected with a 22 semi auto. Right now the extractor is actually broken so we sent it in for some repair work. Lifetime warranty, always a good thing. I've heard that in budget 22 semi autos the extractor breaking is really common. You won't have that issue in a revolver, of course. I recommend the revolver route.

Yes I've seen them for around 200 with the 22mag cylinder!! Stupid question!! Does the cylinder on that model swing open or does a pin hold it in, like on my old H&R revolver ?!! That's one reason I'm motivated to get a newer one!! That was sorta of pain loading, otherwise I would just be happy using the old gun for range practice!! But I do like the 22mag option! Some people say that round is adequate for SD!! Not really what I want it for!! I have my 9mm and 357's for that!!

I've got a Heritage Rough Rider. Six-shot .22lr revolver, and there's extra cylinders you can buy for .22mag, 9-shot .22lr, etc...
Really cool gun, $200
