Ruger .22/45 or Mk II used would be where I would start for semi auto.

Walter P 22 is kind of hit or miss on getting a reliable one but if you get one that runs they are a lot of fun.

i have to also suggest the Ruger Mk I or II or III. very reliable pistols. lots of aftermarket support in the way of parts and accessories. very accurate pistols for the price. i have the Mk III 22/45 Target model and it's a blast to shoot. have put about 2500 rounds through it with not any problems to date.

you can alos look at sigs, smiths and h&r's for fun guns. there are really just to many good .22's to pick from. go hold a bunch and see what you like

Well almost agree, but the high standards that were made in Conneticut are the kings of 22's at least IMO. But then again good luck on finding one at that price.

It needs to be reliable ENOUGH to be worth backyard shooting. Like I said, I'm not risking anything on it ALWAYS firing, it just needs to not suck.

Beretta Bobcat 21A. This is the bees knees faux show! Might be a bit above price range but we'll worth it. The Ruger 22/45 lite is still the best in this class, hands down. Only had pleasure to shoot one recently, but feel in love immediately.

Many years ago I bought an old Harrington and Richardson, nine shot, .22 revolver. That gun improved my shooting more then anything else I shot before or since. I shot tens of thousands of rounds throgh that gun with no problems. It has a somewhat adjustable rear sight and shoots very well. Check the gun shows, or pawn shops and you should be able to find one for your budget or less. One of the good things about the revolver is that you can shoot a lot of rounds through it. .22 short, .22 long, .22 lr, or even goodies like the Super Colibri; it just doesn't care.

Good luck and good hunting!

it's even good with those birdshot shells as well. we used one to kill rats in the barn without doing damage to the barn. my father has my grandfathers old H & R 9 shot revolver with the 6" barrel. first revolver i ever shot. and on top of it all, they are pretty accurate as well.

good suggestion BTW.
