My Pheonix Arms HP-22 is a great shooter. It needs a little polishing when you bring it home to make it run well. You can two different barrels for it, 3" and 5". Fun little gun for $129.

+1 for the SR22. Just recently bought it and very happy with my purchase. Paid it $315 out of door. Been comparing to the Walther P22 before i got the Ruger. Very nice .22lr pistol!

For mouse gun practice I have a JA-22. It's as accurate as any mouse gun on the market. In fact, the JA-22 blows both my kel tecs away in accuracy. I acquired the JA-22 this spring. I have likely shot 10,000 rounds through it. It did break a firing pin. Jimenez sent a new firing pin and spring, no questions asked. I paid $75 for it used - It was in like new condition. I doubt the previous owner shot it 50 times.

I also have to agree that the sr22 is a good gun for the money.

Yes, Sig Sauer licensed GSG to produce guns in three different finishes with the Sig brand on it.

Thanks for all the feedback, I'll definitely look into it. And I've always liked GSG 1911, I'll definitely take that one into consideration.

We have the Ruger MKIII competition model. It is an amazing gun. The MKIII Target is a lot cheaper and probably shoots just as well. Our competition model simply has a longer barrel and therefore longer sight radius. I've fed it magazines as fast as I could load them for 30 magazines. No issues. Didn't even really get that hot. The're SOOO much meat to that barrel. But it still balances like a dream.
