All good musicians are at least proficient, Beyond that its all opinion.
I'm not asking which gun is best I simply want to know about good and bad experiences.

but that is what you titled the thread.

i think if a person shoots long enough and many different types of pistols, they will have both good and bad experiances with them.

Best is in the eye of the beholder.
But from my experience the Ruger 22 auto has a lot going for it in all it's variants. I have had several and they ALL were extremely accurate and reliable.
It gets my vote.

Figured you would read the post not just the title. A title is used to get people interested in a topic and to go to the thread.

I know the browning and ruger are good. Anyone have any experience with the s&w 22a?

being a little more specific with your questions will lead to more detailed and specific answers.

IMO, there is probably a very short list of modern 22 pistols that have really bad reputations. a lot of 22 pistols problems usually stem from ammo choice as some are very finicky with what they like to eat. many times just finding the ammo it likes, cures a lot of problems. a lot of problems also stem from poor cleaning and maintenance. a good cleaning and light oiling will sometimes cure a lot of problems. but for the most part, most modern 22 pistols that i have shot and used over the years, tend to run pretty good.

is there a particular brand that interests you, that you want information about?

For your "bad".
I shot a Walther PK22 that would not go through a complete magazine firing without a failure. Not a fun time...

I'm interested in one that don't have the slide the walther p22 has a slide and you can't make it through a full magazine without it jamming or missfiring. Same goes for the sig. My dad has a buckmark and uncle a ruger and they will shoot the crap out of everything. I like the s&w 22a realtree camo but haven't heard much. I just like to do research before I buy any gun.

i do have some limited experiance with the Buckmark and from what i remember, they seemed pretty reliable and pretty danged accurate, but not cheap. the Rugers, pretty much any Ruger 22 pistol is pretty dang reliable and most are decently accurate. don't have any real experiance with the S & W 22a, so what i do know is that S & W does have a pretty good track record with most pistols though and i have had a few different S & W's over the years, so the 22a might be a safe bet.
