Try some of the on line dealers. They will have lists of lgs that they can deal with. Gallery of Guns has a couple hundred.

Lot's of great .22lr pistols on the market and if you stick to the established brands they're accurate. Just as important is your ammo for accuracy and reliability. I like Blazers and Minimags.

On the cool factor are the High Standards. Apparently (and who knows for sure?), they were used as silent assassination weapons by OSS agents back in the early days; or so they say.

Ruger Mark .22's also became famously notorious when the controversial, underground book, Hit Man: A Technical Manual for Independent Contractors came out and mentioned the Ruger .22 as an ideal hit-man's close quarters assassination weapon as they are cheap, reliable, and can be effectively suppressed. There's some question on the validity of the author and whether it was just a fabrication.

The Ruger Mark .22's are also used a lot in movies usually posing as an assassin's weapon. Google "Ruger Mark IMFDB".

I have a Ruger and love to shoot it but not so much to clean because it is a biatch to clean since parts have to be meticulously aligned to put back together.

The Buckmark are similar Luger-shaped .22's and also well established.

If you're looking for a modern gun, and have the money, then look into the Sig Sauer P226 Classic 22. You can always convert it later with a 9mm/.40 S&W/ .357Sig conversion kit.

i also have a Ruger Mark III 22/45 Target Model. great gun, very accurate and not real expensive either.

the other suggestions made are also good choices. the Buckmark is a good pistol and definately a good choice. also one of my favorites.

There are many good .22 handguns to choose from. Walther is not one of them.
