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.
