Will have to agree on this one. My Hunter model MKIII is great.

Everyone says that the Ruger is the best .22 pistol for plinking. I have a Walther P22 that I am very happy with too though. I have been looking for a mousegun in .22lr but everything in my local gun shops seems to be .25 acp.

Way over the price you've stated, but your distance of shooting, and style, remind me of some long ago days shooting NRA bullseye using a High Standard Supermatic Trophy w/ 7.5 inch fluted barrel. Now THAT'S a gun that can SHOOT! Ah, the memories.

I have a friend in Australia who has talked about High Standard .22 's once being popular over there. [ before your gun laws ] They are pretty good, accurate, & will really increase in value,,, at least in U.S.
If one of those is not found, I agree with others for the Mkll.

I bought this Browning Buck Mark Camper last year .



It is great to shoot and very accurate.

I added the optic's later and now every time I take it to the range - everyone wants to shoot it.

OK, back on topic. This is a rig I use for plinking and getting rid of nuisance squirrels. It's a Ruger 22/45 with a Tasco Pro-point red dot installed w/ a B-Square mount. I had a shoe repair shop sew up a cut I made in a nylon holster to be able to carry the optic mounted gun on my 4-wheeler. It's real handy that way.

That's a creative holster.

Hello, Moos...fellow aussie here (albeit in NSW)

That's very interesting - what competition is it that you're going to shoot with .22? Something like this, maybe??

Not altogether sure of the laws in QLD...but I think we only have the option for .22 until the 6-month mark as well. I'm doing IPSC so it's min 9mm only...will be near the end of the year I can afford to purchase.

I got a S&W 22a pistol....It shoots good and it accurate. Mags are easyto load and it has a built in rail for optics. I like the Ruger 22/45 as well...you can't go wrong with either...
