That is all you need to know for a target type pistol. Unless you want to drop $1k on a 22 pistol them you can get the Smith Model 41 that there is a SWEET semiauto target pistol.
This, as well as a second on the Neos. Tango, you know your 22's.

I'm thinking of getting either a Buckmark (the grips are absolutely wonderful) or waiting for the new Ruger 22/45 with REMOVABLE GRIPS (LINK)! I read on a SHOT show review they will accept standard 1911 grips! I haven't heard when they are going to be available though and I've never been the patient one.

A friend has a Ruger Mark III and loves it. Just make sure you own a rubber mallet for cleaning!
Thats too bad, I was going to get the 22a, now Im worried

I bought my Buck Mark Camper for $279 at Academy Sport & Outdoor - it was on sale -

If you shop you can find one for $300 or under.

If you want something to just have fun with and blow through ammo, you should also consider a P22. Not gonna win any competitions with it, but its fun, wont jam/misfire, and def in your $300 range.

Picked up a NIB Ruger Mk III about 6 months ago- $250 cash from my dealer- you might ask "Is there any wiggle room in that price?". If you have cash in hand, never hurts to ask. Got the Mk III to keep my Mk I company in its old age. The Mk III shoots like a carbine, eats whatever I feed it. Controls are all in the right place. The Browning is also a nice pistol- I just like Rugers. Ref: Rubber mallet for cleaning- learn the trick of re-assembly (know when to turn it upside down, when to turn right side up) do it once, and you can do it in your sleep. I realize it was shameless of me, but I have bought more than one gun at a steeply discounted price because "It don't work right." (Helps if you put the pieces back in the right order! )

If your budget is really tight, do some shopping for a USED Ruger- I swear you could wear out a ball peen hammer before you wear one of these out.

I love my S&W 22a but $285 is way too much to pay for one. Cabela's has them for $199.00.

My dad has a S&W 22A and has lots of jams. Can't even get a full 10rd mag through it using anything but CCI mini-mags. I have a Buckmark and it eats whatever I throw at it. I looked at the Buckmark and the Ruger, and while I am a huge Ruger fan, the MKIII just didn't fit my hand like the Buckmark did.
