Many years ago I had a Ruger MK I I used to shoot grouse through the neck consistently at 20 to 50 feet, incredibly accurate for fixed sites. On the other hand the MK II I have now has never been as accurate but I have shot digger squirrels up to 75 yards with it. I have never shot any other .22 semi-auto pistol so my experience is limited to Ruger. Then again it put a lot of grouse on the table.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Just like the feel of it better than the Ruger. Not knocking the Ruger mind you! It is a personal preference issue.

You mean like this one?

The Smith & Wesson Mdl. 41. It is above your budget but it is the only .22 target pistol offered.

The GSG or UMAREX 1911`s are not really Bullseye target pistols.

The top ISSF shooters use pistols like the Walther GSP or GSP Expert, Hämmerli 208 International, etc.

Those are the pistols top shooters use.

I agree, worth every penny.
You'll never regret buying either.

My favorite besides the High Standard is the Sig.
My least favorite is the Ruger, because the mag release won't drop them to easily.

I removed the magazine safety from my Mark III and now they drop freely. There are You Tubes that show how to do this modification.
