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 tried a browning buckmark and it amazing especially with accuracy

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
Having a dedicated 22 is always a plus. Two guns are usually better than one. But IMO I think training with the weapon you'd be using in a critical situation can never be a bad thing. By converting your firearm with a 22 conversion kit, you'd be training with what your used to using while also saving a ton of $$ on ammo. Just my opinion.

How about a good SA Revolver. I would recommend the Ruger Single Six. Fun too shoot, will eat any .22 ammo and very accurate.

That was the problem - MOST 22 semi-auto handguns don't do well with "bulk" ammo - CCI mini mag has always served well in all mine
