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.
Thank you to everyone who weighed in, but it looks like Sweeper wins the thread by owning every gun mentioned.

I was leaning toward the M&P guns anyway, I should have mentioned that the under $1000 would likely be my limit. The 1911 was the other platform I was considering, but I don't think I've seen one person say they liked a .22lr 1911 better than the M&P22 and every comment I've seen about the M&P22 was that it was a blast to shoot.

Mind is made up, now to find the best deals! Thanks again to everyone for your input!

new-sig-sauer-1911-22-cal..jpgdlister,

I know you stated 22 and 9mm. But if you want two pistols that are almost identical I would suggest you look at the Sig 1911 22 cal Pistol and the Sig 911 45 ACP Both look and funtion alike.
Some of the other 1911 pistols do come in 9mm. The 45 ACP would also be excellent for protection,carry and shooting on the range! Here is a shot of the Sig 1911 22 cal pistol and you are only looking at aroung $350 for it and they are very accurate.

Here is a target shot when I first got my Sig 1911 22 cal Pistol at 15 yards right out of the box.

Umarex 1911 in .22 and the RIA 1911 in 9mm.

The actions can be set up to have the same trigger pull, ergonomics, etc...

And the combined would cost less than $1000.
