I went and looked at a Walther P22 in nickel and black. I liked it. Not to sure about the magazine release. I guess thats something I would have to get use to. I will go to my other local shops tomorrow and look at the others you have suggested.

Thank you so much for the great information!

I bought My Browning Buck Mark from Academy Sport & Outdoor on sale last summer for $319.



I added a optical sight to it and love shooting it.

It's accurate as hell.

I am a member of a pistol club on a military base and you are only able to shoot at targets that are 25 yards away. How accurate will the 22lr pistols be at that range? I am more concerned about the P22 with the 3.5inch barrel.

25 yards is not a problem for this .22 - just sight it in and it's right on.

And I can't tell you how much fun it is to shoot.

As I shoot my other guns, I usually bring this gun and everyone wants to shoot it.

The Browning Buckmark and Ruger MkII orMkIII pistols are probably the best semi auto pistols on the market,and both have a good selection of aftermarket parts available for them.

I have a Ruger Mk I that is incredibly accurate. I bought the Lovely Mrs Freefall a Buckmark to practice with because the controls are more like her Officers ACP. Compared to the Ruger, the Browning is a MAJOR pain to disassemble and clean. Should have got her a 22/45. Some of us learn slow.

Had a Walther P22, and I didn't feel like I was loosing a great gun when I traded it in. Its fun to shoot and easy to disassemble/clean, but lacks in accuracy if your going to be competing with it. Stick with a Ruger MKIII 22/45.
