That's because you did not have the pink model. Otherwise you would have thought it 'fab-u-LOUS!'

Pink would have clashed with my green tint Cazal shooting glasses, silly girlfriend!

I only looked at a few replies, but the way I see it by far your best options are the 1911 conversion and, if you don't feel the conversion's quality will be up to your standards of function and reliability (they vary, so do research and find a good one), then get the Ruger 22/45. That way you will still have roughly the same feel as your 1911, but still get the cheap plinking of a .22.


Those are the only things I'd recommend for you. Unfortunately, the "tactical" .22 pistols available are so hit-or-miss in quality and consistency that I wouldn't even bother. If you like the idea of something to help you get to more practice with your 1911, then one of the steep-angled .22 target pistols won't do you a whole lot of good.

Ruger 22/45 for the money is the best shooter you are going to find.

For $350, the Beretta U22 Neos is right in your price range. It's a very nice gun, I rented one once, shot very well. If you can't get it locally, try Gunsamerica.com. Plus, it looks even sexier than the Walther.

Also in the bracket is the Ruger Mk III, the option I'd highly recommend, owning a Mk III Competition, myself. The standard Mk III is all-steel, but you can also get the polymer 22/45 version, which has a 1911-style grip and a bull barrel. Looks goofy, but if you get the all-steel model, your grandkids will be plinking with the same gun after you're long gone.
I have a Walther P22 and it has given me none of those issues. It will jam every now and then but not often. I have never had it jam when firing Stingers, only when using the bulk stuff.

The Ruger has a great reputation and is probably a better gun but it is also a lot bigger and heavier.

For a target pistol, bigger and heavier is better. I clean the barrel and chamber every time I shoot it, but the Ruger only gets fully broken down once a month, and I've had one malfunction in over 1,000 rounds, with crap Winchester bulk ammo. I feed it a steady diet of Federal Champion and Spitfire now, and it can't be beat for reliability.
