i have the Ruger Mark III 22/45 Target model. very accurate and decently priced. great pistol for either a beginner or a veteran shooter. i paid about $260 for mine. only drawback is, they are so much fun to shoot, seems like you never have enough ammo!

That's good to hear I shoot every week here in college with the club using Mark III's but there are so many I am having a tough time deciding which model to pick from.

I got a 22/45 with a short barrel to practice with a short sight radius. Iíve put a rubber grip and on it for comfort and to more closely resemble the thickness of my G19. Iíve got a ĎSpeed Stripí kit on order so I donít have to fight with the main spring, dance with the magazine or with remove the rubber grip, in order to clean it.

If your main interest is bullís eye or some other completion, and not training for your 9mm, consider one with a longer barrel and replaceable grips and sights that you can change if you want.

The GSG 1911 is fun to shoot, accurate and will not break the bank.
