Both the Hi Point C-9 and Phoenix HP22 are your best choices unless you go used.
I have owned both.

I would go with the C9 at least you get to use it for HD.

Hi-points I know they are in that price range but as far as reliability.?.
Life time warranty though. For a little more you may want to look at Kel-Tec pistols.

A buddy has a Kel-Tec PF11. He let me shoot it, and it is no fun. May be good for cc/hd, but not for plinking. I keep reading about Hi point, and may have to try ityself.

I asked a friend who has one about the jammming. He said that it only jams with the 10 round mag. When he uses the 8 it shoots fine.

Shop carefully under USED .22 pistols. I did find a well used but functioning Ruger Standard auto for $110. Finish was well worn, but reliable and accurate. And yes, I considered that a bargain.

Did check over on Auction Arms, there are several Rugers (22, 9mm, 45) that are under $200 right now. Bear in mind that you would need to add shipping and FFL fees, so you might want to shop a gun sow or your LGS first.

I hear a lot of guys polishing the ejection port with sandpaper and opening up the mags on hi points to help with jams. Sounds like a 150 pain in the ass to me.
