Default Comparing .22's

I am looking into a Ruger 22/45 Target. Though I haven't done much research, I know ruger has been doing .22 pistols for a long time so I'm wondering if there are any equivalent guns that you guys want to recommend. I'm looking for around $350 but I might go up to $400 if needed

Thanks

The Smith and Wesson .22s are a great starter pistol and priced well.

Any of the major brands will do you well- Colt, S&W, Browning, or Ruger. Cost will likely favor Ruger. They started making the Standard Automatic about 52 years ago. Colt has been making the Woodsman since about 1938, Browning the Buckmark since 85. If you can find an older High Standard in good shape for a reasonable amount (they can be pricey) you would not be disappointed.

Had a Sig Mosquito. Would NOT recommend.
Had a Ruger 22/45 Would recommend. Sweet shooter. Take down's a bitch tho, couldn't take it anymore.

GS1911. Love this thing. Would definitely recommend.

I have heard that the take downs a little tricky but what makes it difficult?

Many people worry about the take-down on their guns. First you actually have to "take-down" your guns very seldom(maybe never). All the guns listed above come apart different but but all can be done by someone who can follow the directions in the owners manuals or on the 'net. Worry about something else.

I completely agree with hiwall. If your going to have a firearm that requires takedown, be ready to do some general maintenance. Practice makes perfect right ?

Try a Sig 1911 .22. Shoots well, easy to take down. Very reliable
