What's your price range? If you want exceptional try the S&W 617 or Colt Diamondback in 22lr for revolvers.

Unless you are completely set on .22 revolvers, take a look at the Ruger SR22. One sweet little handgun. If you want to get into a 22 revolver for a reasonable price check your local gun shops for a Hi-Standard Sentinel.

Yeah, it was bumped. What I think happens is people search for information (which is good) and then start posting to old threads they have searched out without realizing it's an old thread. It's really no big deal. We encourage people to search and that's what their doing.

Suggesting a search is a good thing. But this will happen on occassion because of that. I don't think it's a big deal, really. It's just kind of funny to see people posting suggestions to people who are long gone.

Does anybody have a recommendation for a reliable handgun chambered to .22? I am principally looking for a revolver, but would consider an exceptional automatic. I just want something simple that I can practice fundamentals with and not break the bank. Preferably, I'd like something for less than $500.
You don't say whether you got a 4" or 6" GP100. A good surrogate .22 would probably have the same barrel length as the primary gun. With a new GP100, a good surrogate in .22 would be a S&W 617 with barrel length the same as the GP100. The new 4” Ruger SP101 may also be a good candidate for a 4” GP100. Among older guns, the best would be a S&W 17 (6”) or 18 (4”). As a surrogate for a double action gun, I wouldn’t be inclined to get a single action.

For a good but inexpensive revolverI have found the Heritage RoughRider 22/22mag to be a good single action revolver
