I agree with the good Ruger comments. They make excellent guns.

The 22 revolvers - like Smith and Wesson or Ruger cost a little more than the semi-auto's, but they are excellent guns that you will never regret having.
No I am not new to shooting and thanks y'all

Generally cheaper than the Ruger or Buckmark, but those are both good guns to. The Beretta styling is not for everyone.

The grip seems small but I found it comfortable even with my freakishly long mutant fingers.
I'm picking one of these up with my tax money. My father in law has one and I love shooting it.

For a 22 handgun used or range plinking or hunting I prefer a Ruger Single Six, you can get the convertible model which allows you to swap out to the mag cylinder to shoot 22 mags if you like. If you want something to carry concealed then you would want something smaller like the previously mentioned lcr

Affordable, I'd go with a heritage rough rider. Long accurate revolver and fun plinker.

Mark 3, 22/45 are not what I would consider affordable for a low cal gun worth little more than plinking fun, unless you want it for competition.

I'd say a Jimenez ja22 semi auto or the rough rider revolver. The Jimenez are fine in the lower caliber guns, their high cal are known for failures and low quality.

The Smith and Wesson 22A has a MSRP of $329 and a street/store price from $250-$290.
