Default 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.
