reliable .22 handgun
So I did some looking and still nothing. I want a .22 handgun. I love the look of the ruger sr22 and the sign sauer mosquito. But I have read too many post about how bad they perform. So please help point me in the correct direction for a reliable. 22 that looks like those 2 models. Thanks

I haven't heard anything bad about the Ruger SR22... the SIG I've heard of problems from people. I'd go for the SR22.

The sr22 is 'supposed' to be reliable.

If you want reliable, can't beat the Ruger Mark 2 or 3.

I'm leaning toward the sr22 anyone with experience or own the gun wanna let me know how they like the gun?

I have one. Just bought it 2 weeks ago. Walther P22 was my alternative choice and ended up with SR22. Very accurate, fun to shoot and only had 3 FTFs out of 1000 rounds.

I have about 1,000 rounds through my SR22 and it performs like a champ. The fixed barrel makes for great accuracy. Have mine loaded with rat shot right now. Got a couple copperheads asking for the dirt nap.

We have an SR22. Its really my wiFes pistol but I love it. I've shot it way more than she has. Its as accurate as I can be. Ive fed it lots of different ammo federal, remington, Winchester, fiocchi, CCI mini mags, and blazer. The only problem I had was with blazer after about 300 rnds. I went back to federal and it kept shooting. Problem was FTF new end after shot. So I'm pretty sure it was the blazer ammo. I would highly suggest this pistol. Check out the videos section here. I have a couple videos of it in action.
Now onto the sig. It's looks okay. Has a time with ammo. So far the only ammo my friend has not had issues with is CCI minimags. Everything else jams.
