Get the Heritage Arms Single action with the .22 Mag cylinder extra.

It will assist with the basics of pistol shooting and offer you enough "oomph" to get other critters than squirrels or rabbits (when needed).

Easy to work on if something should break. And costs less than some semi-auto.

Ruger Mark III 22/45, spend an extra few bucks and get the model with removable grips. Accurate, will shoot most any ammo you feed it. Lots of doo dads you can swap out to suit your fancy.

I too prefer the Ruger MK3 22/45. They're accurate, reliable, and run great with a suppressor. Cost is about $450 and they fit a lot like a 1911.

But there are plenty of other fine options. It really just depends on your tastes. I've been very impressed with the Ruger SR22 and S&W MP22. The M&P is an ideal choice if you're looking to simulate the feel of a medium-full sized poly centerfire. I don't have a high opinion of the Sig Mosquito or many 22lr 1911s.

My 22/45:

Beretta Neos easily less than $300. Mags are cheap. Reliable and accurate. Available with a 4" or 6" barrel. I am pleased with the 6" I have.
