The indoor range i go to rents the RUGER MARK-II for $10 an hour, so i know they see a lot of use. They are probably reliable, and not real fussy, or they probably would have went with something else. You should go to your range and look at what they have,and recommend. See if you can rent the one you like before you buy it, and take it for a test drive LOL.... The guys that run the range i go to will let me shoot pretty much anything in the shop, if i ask them real nice, and offer to sweep up brass, or help around the shop.

I'd look for a conversion kit for whatever it is your running now.

I am currently in love with my Ruger Mark III 22/45 Target Model. I picked it up barely used and put a Tru-glo red dot on it. Really accurate and through 300 rounds of CCI Mini-Mags without a single issue.

I have a Mark II and I love it. She eats anything I put through it and she is very accurate. But there are other .22's that are quite good, too. You can't go wrong with a good .22 for plinking fun, that's for sure.

You can find good complete 22's for the same or even less than conversion kits, plus MOST of the "kits" are not that reliable
I have a Chiappa 1911-22 that i gave about $300 for- Ruger Mark series can be had for about the same or even less used

Like my Sig Mosquito a lot and it was great for introducing my (then teenaged) kids to handguns.

I and one of my sons bought the Beretta U22 Neos. We opted for the 4" barrels over the 6". While it looks like something out of Robocop, it is really a very nice plinker. The full length rail makes for more versatility to mount a sight or scope if you ever wanted to. It's priced below the Ruger and is a very comfortable .22 to shoot. My wife absolutely loves shooting it.

Ruger has some fine 22 Target Pistols! But I am partial to my Browning Benchmark!
I use to have a 4" High Standard Victor *Which I never should have traded! Always have been sorry I did and probably will find another one some day. I won a few State Matches with it. Although they are hard to come by now days, is the reason I did not suggest that one! And certainly depends upon the old budget issue!

I considered a kit for my Springfield 1911, but it says in the manual, this is not recommended, and I guess that's good enough for me.
