Good point. The SR22 falls somewhere in the micro/subcompact category. The SR9 is slimmer than most double-stacks, but is otherwise full-sized. And the SR9c is more of a medium compact.

All three of these Rugers are perfectly good guns BTW, they're just different platforms in significantly differing sizes...which seems to defeat the purpose of the OP's aim. If not for that fact alone, I'd have mentioned this option right along side the M&P as an easy to find and quality product at a fair price.

The ISSC M22 looks and feels a lot like the smaller Glocks. Also, the conversion kits have limitations BUT are not that bad and do offer the feel of using the same gun. I have a Glock 17 with a TSG22 conversion kit. It gets about 1 FTF per 15 rd mag. Plus side is you get good experience fast clearing. I've also got a Taurus PT92 with a Ciener kit. That runs like a clock. I can shoot hundreds of 22lr rounds through it without a glitch.

Full size Colt 1911 or a Springer or a RIA in the configuration of your choice and a Umarex Colt 22lr to match. The Umarex 1911 22's come in three options, GI style, tactical with Novak style sights and a rail, or the Gold Cup style with adjustable target sights.

My Umarex is Gold Cup stylized and a very nice range rim popper. If you can find any extra 22lr.

There's the trick now isn't it? Finding 9mm AND 22? I haven't been able to dig much of either up!

I've only shot a handgun a couple of times before, but I've got a Mossburg 500 12 gauge shotgun for deer hunting and a Marlin 795 .22lr for squirrel and I'm fairly accurate with either one.

I plan to take a beginner handgun course at the local shooting range, and then shoot once a week or so at the range. I'd like for the .22lr to have the same "feel" as the 9mm so that it's not much to transition between the two guns.

I asked this on another forum, and someone recommended the M&P 22 and 9mm guns, which have the same weight and size. They both look like great handguns, but I've also been trying to see if there are any other recommendations.

As of now, I plan to shoot the M&P 22 and 9mm and see if I like them.. but I've still got some time to wait for my tax return to come in, so I'd like to spend that time researching my options. Does anyone else have another recommendation that would meet my criteria, or any opinions on the M&P guns?
The M&P's immediately came to my mind. I have not shot the M&P 9, but my brother in law has the M&P 22 and I love it. It has a fantastic trigger.

CZ-75 9mm and a CZ-75 Kadet. Or get a 75 and a Kadet conversion kit.

Plenty of 9MM ammo around, even SD's if you want to pay for em, but as we have discussed here and on the Podcast, 22's are being treated like Gold bullion...

The SR is a DAO trigger, while the 1911 is An SA(Single action),...if you want the Browning in 22 and you want a 1911 in 9MM,..you need to look at the brands of 1911's in 9MM. Colt has a few but they are hard to come by, Rock Island, Springfield( just came out with the "Range Officer" in 9MM), Metro Arms, Taurus, Para,...and I'm sure I missed a few...my vote aside form the 1911 options is the Beretta 92 pattern guns(besides Beretta,Taurus,Chiappa) and the Chiappa M9-22..., mine even eats crappy Thunderbolts most of the time.....

I've owned many of the guns mentioned in this thread, and have experience shooting pretty much all the rest. The S&W M&P 9mm/22lr combination wins hands down if you'd like to stay under $1K for the pair. Both are excellent. The MP22 has a 12rd capacity, nice trigger, nearly identical layout to the MP9, and it'll gobble through bulk ammo.

Ruger SR9 + SR22- Good guns, completely different design and size.
1911 22lrs- Not impressed. And I own one.
CZ 75 + 22lr Kadet- 75's a great gun (I have a pair). The Cadet kit is too expensive.
Glock + ISSC- Viable. Similar to the S&W package, but IMO less quality, more money.
22/45 + 1911- Excellent. Potentially expensive, but very good. I have both.
Sig P226 + rimfire kit- Had both. Good platform. Expensive combo, expensive mags, finicky rimfire.
