And it's even faster if you remove the magazine disconnect, replacing the hammer and bushing with Mk II parts.

Browning Buckmark followed by either the Ruger MkIII or a High Standard. They are the creme of the crop of .22LR pistols. Accurate enough for hunting small game like squirrels and rabbits, yet light and handy enough for just general carrying while hiking and/or plinking.

I have a Sig Sauer Mosquito and I love it. I'd recommend it.

In a previous thread (can't remember which one) Cane convinced me of the benefits of a GSG-5 1911 built specifically for the .22lr round.

They are, like $375 and are a complete, real-deal 1911. Inexpensive, but not cheapo.

It is definitely on my list!

If you already have a 9mm or .45ACP handgun, the .22 conversion kits from Marvel, Advantage, Kimber, or Ciener are also an idea worth considering.

I had Ruger MkII. I gave it to my son as a welcome home when he left the Marines Corps because I found that I simply didn't shoot it anymore: when I wanted to shoot a .22LR pistol I put my Ciener kit on my Brolin Arms 1911 and shot that instead. Today, instead of Ciener I'd probably own an Advantage <http://www.advantagearms.com/>, Armscor, or Marvel <http://www.marvelprecision.com/>kit. The Advantage is available for either 1911 or Glock handguns. Ciener kits <http://www.22lrconversions.com/> are available for the 1911, Glocks, Browning Hi-Power, and Beretta/Taurus PT92. Any of the above kits will turn your centerfire self-defense handgun into a nice plinker that's inexpensive to feed and practice with.

I also have a Mosquito and have a lot of fun with it. Had about 6 months and it has close to 2000 rds through it. With the adjustible sights you get it fairly accurate. When I bought it I cleaned and lubed it and then racked the slide about 400 times. Broke it in with CCI minimags but now shoot Federal Bulk pac or Remington Goldent bullets. Have an occasional fte but for the most part the gun is a great deal of fun. Good luck with whatever you choose.

If you get a Mosquito, get one of the newer ones. The older ones (like mine, alas) had problems. A friend of mine has one of the newer ones, and has had hardly a hiccup from it.

I'm a little bias, seeing how I worked for S&W up here in Houlton,ME. I own both a 622 plinker w/ adj. sights and a 22A with tasco red dot scope, I like the interchangeable barrels for this gun, both guns are very reliable and will shoot any ammo without a hitch. Everyone here has a great opinion and whatever you choose I hope you have alot of fun with it.

I have a Browning Buckmark with a 7" heavy barrell that can drive a nail at 75 yds. Fun, reliable, accurate. Takedown for cleaning is a bit of a bear. Ruger MKII is another good bet, buddy of mine has one that holds its own against my buckmark.
