Looking at the P22 (heard bad things about them) , Neos, and GSG 1911

Would like to hear what you guys think
Your top choices for an accurate, long lasting reliable plinker will most likely boil down to Browning or Ruger depending on your preference.

Years ago I had every intention on getting a famed Ruger Mark II. However when I finally got to the gun show and actually held one in my hand, I didn't really care for the feel of the slanted grip.

The dealer also had a Browning Buck Mark Camper and when I picked it up, the feel of the straight, contured rubberized grips felt great and were a 100% improvement over the Ruger's grips and bought it on the spot.

The Ruger 22/45 had not come out yet, I like the the style better than the Mark II-III but, the Browning still feels better in the hand, has a 3.5 lb. trigger pull out of the box and have never had a problem with it over the years of shooting it.

Thanks russ, the mag removed is a safety. But yes, it should have the thumb safety on. Which .22 Pistol? - General Handgun Discussion

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Try a wheel gun, check out the Taurus 94. You can get a stainless one for around $325

Looks like your mind was set before you asked the question since I did not see any comments about the Neos.

Beauty is indeed in the eye of the beholder...for me, that is one ugly gun!

Good luck and hope it works for you.
