I'm not a very experienced shooter, I've hunted for years but I only started to get seriously into handguns in the past four or five months, so take what I say with a grain of salt.

The first pistol I bought was a Ruger Mark III (a 22/45 model), it was very accurate and felt great in my hands. However, cleaning it up was not something I enjoyed. I never really got used to the disassembly system. Most of my self defense weapons are revolvers, and semi-autos in which the first shot is double action (I've sold most of the semi-autos, though) so the trigger on the Mark III was not ideal for the kind of practice I needed.

So I used all these nice excuses to get a .22 revolver. It suits my training needs better than the Mark III and I enjoy cleaning it.

Don't get me wrong, the Ruger is an excellent pistol, it's just not what I needed.

I have 2 22 pistols. A Ruger MkII (Best of their line) and a Beretta Neos. The neos set me back $200 it is a bit futureistic looking but it is a blast to shoot and so simple a cave man can do it in the care and cleaning department.

I love both of mine. When I bought the neos I looked at must have been 20 different pistols. I looked at the smith 22a didn't like the location of the mag release and was too small for my hand. Tried the ruger 22/45 MkIII that felt like a sharp cornered piece of wood in my hand. I love the feel of Brownings Buckmark but the one I liked was out of the price range for me at the time. I dislike the walthers because of the trigger on them.

Look around and find one you like. To me the 22/45 didn't feel at all like my Kimber at all.

If you want to go the revolver way I would look at a Smith Model 17 or 617 the 17 is older and has a partial underlug and is only 6 shots. The 617 is a full underlug and is 6 or 10 shots. My m 17 smith would out shoot many rifles at 50 yards.

I have a Taurus 9701 tracker revolver. very fun and very accurate. It has a long heavy barrel which helps accuracy. They are not to expensive either.

Around here .380 prices are absurdly lower than 9mm which is good for me cause I prefer the .380 over 9mm.

I have a Walther P22 and love it. Its great to train on because it has a slide, unlike other 22lr target pistols (nothing wrong with that though). It does take a couple hundred rounds to wear it in, but after that its very accurate. Simple take-down and easy to clean. Assembly is a little tricky but easy if you read the manual.

I've got the Ruger Mark III and it's an excellent gun. In a slightly lower price range, the SW 22A-1 is a good 22 pistol. My son has the Beretta NEOS and it's never failed to digest whatever he fed it. That one's the least expensive of the three.
