Reliable .22 pistols
I took my daughter to the range last weekend to shoot. She shot my Mossberg 44 US .22 LR rifle and my Kimber .45.

Before shooting the .45, I had her shoot a .22 pistol to get used to feel w/o having a serious kick. She shot the Walther P22 and enjoyed it. It seemed like a fun pistol.

What other .22 pistols are out there that I should consider if I decided to go with a .22 for plinking and occasion CCW. My Kimber Pro Carry II will be my primary CCW.

Links to particular guns you suggest would greatly help.

I have a Browning Buck Mark 22 and the husband just bought me a Ruger Mark III 22 lr Competition pistol with a Nikon scope. Still waiting for the left handed grips from Ruger. They were supposed to show today and aren't here yet ... so my new gun is naked. :(

The Ruger Mrk III is a nice pistol.
I also like the older Colt Woodsmans/Huntsmans.
The Buckmarks can be hit or miss. A buddy of mine had one that he loved so he bought a target model and hated it.

I beleve the best on the market for the money today is the Rugers. I`ve got 2 of the MK 11`s and with good ammo have never had any problems with function or accuracy.

i don't own either, but the rugers and brownings both seem quite nice.

however, i did read recently (since i myself am in the market for a 22) that someone tested the loaded chamber indicator on their ruger mk III and found that it was unsafe. i guess the chamber indicator fastens itself around the rim of the cartridge..., which it's obviously a rimfire cartrige, and that if struck hard enough it'd cause the cartidge to fire. since/if you have children that may be a particular concearn. however, i've read other tests on this feature that have yeilded safe results, so it may well just be a myth created by a disgruntled ruger customer.
