This^^^^^^

The Ruger Mark II and Mark III's are some of the best .22 pistols avaliable for the money. They will run forever, and are very accurate and dependable. As you can see from these 3, they come in most any configuration or barrel length you could possibly want, in either blue or Stainless.

I agree ^^^

I'm not sure why it needs to be smallish. You're not planning on CC'ing it, right? Then just go ahead and get one the pistols at the top of the heap? Ruger 22/45, Ruger MarkIII, Walther P22, etc.

I chose a Browning Buckmark and have been extremely happy!!!

I may be narrowing it down. Which would you choose:

Walther P22
Ruger SR22
Sig Sauer Mosquito

What about Taurus? Are they any good?

I am very happy with my Ruger Mark III 22/45, bought it for $300, have burned about 1000 rounds in the last month. It was a PITA to take a part the first time or two but am use to it and it's loosening up now that I have done it four times or so.

Again I say ruger. I've seen quite a few pics of blown up walthers as it's not as well made. The sig is very very ammo picky. my friend can only shoot CCI mini mags in his. Sr22 you wont have buyers regret. IMHO

I'm a huge fan of the Ruger MKII and MKIII pistols. IK also really like the Browning Buckmark pistols. I also have a Chiappa 1911-22 that I've been having a lot of fun with. Being a 1911 guy to begin wioth being able to shoot something so close to the feel of a real 1911 makes my trigger finger really happy. Plus it fits in all my 1991 holders

If I was buying a 22 pistol today I'd probabally go for the Ruger MKII or III or Browning though. The Buckmark I believe has the better trigger out of the box but the Ruger trigger calms down pretty quick on it's own. Either is very accurate and there are tons of aftermarket doodads to make it uniquely yours. I changed the bbl on my 22/45 to a Tactical Solutions bbl. It's one of my favorite target toys now

Cool. Glad you like it as much as we do. The more we shoot it the more I love it

Ruger Single Six or Single Ten for plinking and target shooting. Not much good for SD though being single action. The Ruger 22/45 is a good target gun but I wouldn't carry mine. Tough to unholster quickly.
