I have a S&W Model 17 revolver. 22's can often be finicky when it comes to ammo. The great thing about my 17 and most revolvers is they don't care what kind of ammo you feed them.

i bought a Ruger Mark III 22/45 about 7-8 months ago. this pistol is a blast to shoot and very enjoyable. i have had my eye on them for many years and just never bought one for some reason or another. after shooting mine, the only regret i have is, not buying one many years ago and all the fun i have missed out on. my wife even ejoys shooting it as well. so far i have shot about 1600 rounds through it and not a problem yet. these are great pistols to have for informal target shooting and just plain fun shooting. reminds me, i need to buy some more magazines and ammo for mine this weekend!

Can't argue with that. The 22/45 has a great quality/price/fun ratio!

22/45 ss bull was my first handgun, and last to sell if need be. I love it, have at least 15k rounds through it, only jams when the rimfire crud gets too thick.

I always take a 22 to the range and shoot it first. It may be an early 60's Ruger RST4 or a mid 50's S&W Model 17 or even a late model Ruger 22/45 (sometimes with a red dot installed). All are fun to shoot and to me are the best way to start a range session.

My favorite is my Ruger Single Six. It has a 22lr and a 22 mag cylinder. Super reliable and hours of fun.

GSG 1911-1500+rds with no problems and my Ruger single six old model(1957) with thousands of rds through it over the years. Blazer ammo works just fine. Best regards

I like a nice Smith DA revolver (but only shoot it SA).
Can get a decent semi auto way cheaper.

Thanks everyone for your help and input. Ed
Get the s&w target .22 auto. I had one and it was the best .22 pistol I have ever shot. Then I let it go...sigh..

I bought the Sig 1911 22 and the Colt 1911 22 and the ruger mk3 on a splurge one day. They all shoot good and about the same , but none compare to my old High Standard military hd.
I've been shooting and collecting colts for 40 years and I was very disappointed that my colt 1911 22 was made in Germany by Walther. To me it's just not a real colt.
