My First Auto,Maybe a .22?
 
I have a couple of revolvers,a .357 for protection,and a .22lr for practice.I know almost nothing about autos,and was thinking of starting low with a .22,even though the thought of a heavy kickin .45 acp tempts me.I haven't really seen too many .22 lr autos out there,I am aware of the mark 2 and 3,and the Taurus pt .22,and the beretta bobcat,or tomcat or something,and other than that,I can't think of any auto .22s.Are there more makes and models of auto .22s out there that i'm not aware of?I don't want to spend a ton either.

There are bunches of them, just depends on your budget. What are you looking to spend and then we can narrow down some recommendations for you...

like $300 is all I really want to spend on a .22

Some of the Sig's have a conversion kit, don't they? Spend a bit more & use it for .22 & 9mm.

I have a XD45, and even with the bottom half being plastic, the kick/recoil isn't that bad at all. (good excuse for mah gut, 225lbs) VERY loud though; earplugs required.

I have a Sig Sauer Mosquito .22LR, cost me $289 out the door, years ago.
Not sure what they run now, but I'd check them out.

Sig makes 22lr versions of the 220, 226, and 229. First you buy the 22lr version fitted on the platform of the full-sized gun. MSRP is about $600, but they can be found for $450-500 if you're lucky. Then you send off a coupon and $399 to get the conversion caliber of your choice (.45acp for the 220, your choice of 9mm, 357sig, or 40sw for the 226 or 229). They send you a magazine and complete top end.

It's a fair enough deal, but you're looking at a $900 investment before you've even added extra mags and ammo.

Either a Ruger or Buckmark would be the best choices at that price...

A bit pricey, but Sigs are worth it....2 guns under a grand.
I think it's a real neat idea and look to see other MFG's doing the same thing.
I was going to get one of the models, but I already own 2 .40 cals and 2 .22LR handguns so it was kind of pointless to buy another Sig .22LR. :(
