Ruger made a sp101 in 22lr for a couple of years. Try some pawn shops in your area, A S+W, Ruger or Dan Wesson is a much better investment than a taurus.

Sometimes cheap bulk ammo does fail to fire. Sometimes also in my Ruger Mk I and my .22 rifles. Failed today in the Lovely Mrs. Freefall's Buckmark. Time to disassemble it and clean it thoroughly. Spit happens. Luckily I've never been charged by a wounded spruce hen. Was once by a wounded porcupine. Shot it again with my .22 rifle. Spooky for a few seconds. They have big teeth.
I wouldn't hesitate to trust a Taurus .22 with anything I would trust a .22 for. If you need a serious gun, get one. Thinking about getting my daughter, the Lovely Miss Freefall, a Taurus Tracker .44 mag for lightweight bear defense for remote job for the summer. Hear it won't stand up to a steady diet of the stuff I feed my Super Blackhawk, but she needs to carry it a lot, shoot it very little. At least with bear loads.(300 gr, 1350 fps) And don't give me that stuff about practice with what you carry. You shoot these things all the time I'll listen to you, most of you have never fired one.

I get it. I have a S&W 629. I shoot a 250 grain lead bullet as about 1300 fps when I practice. I don't imagine too many ladies would be shooting a box of 300 grain rounds. A lot of big men would not enjoy that.

I'll tell you one thing. I'll never get a Taurus anything. I felt a .22 out yesterday and the cylinder was ridiculously loose straight out of the box and the trigger pull felt like a toy. I spoke with one of the owners and he said they are contemplating not getting anymore in.

Does it need to be a revolver?

How about a .22LR 1911?

$279 shipped to your FFL:



Legacy Puma 1911 Auto 22LR 10 RD NIB FREE SHIPPING : Semi-auto at GunBroker.com

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!

Default Thanks

Thank you, one and all. Now that I am looking for a gun my father in law now wants one too. I was looking at that 1911 Puma 22 but do not know enough about it. I have heard of Puma and they do make good firearms, but this one is alloy with a steel barrel am I right? A little large for my father-in-law but perfect for me. He is older and set in his ways and wants a 22 revolver
I'll have to keep checking the local shops in hopes that one comes along.

You mentioned an H&R 929. I got one from a friend a couple of years ago and it is awesome. CCI Velocitors at 50 yards offhand on cans of soda, and the cans don't stand a chance. I bought it to help out my buddy, but now it is one of my favorite shooters and sees a lot of range time.

They can usually be picked up cheap, and seem to be plentiful.

I'm with M14, you can't beat a good H&R!
Love the 9 shots.
Take a little time, find a nice one, and it will last you a lifetime +!
Here's a couple more models to look at.

1980 Model 999 Sportsman, A little pricier these days, but, you can find
them from $ 400 NIB, to $ 250 very nice shooters. H&R's top of the line.



Model 939, great target shooter,
Couple hundred bucks.


Model 940, same as 939 but round barrel


Model 949, In case interested in cowboy/western style. Also shoots great, double action. also a couple hundred will buy a nice one!

I honestly have no idea on cost or avalability but my father gave me a s&w model 34 kit gun for my 21st birthday. I know he had it since he was 18 so its pretty old. it is a SA/DA 6 shot revolver with a 4 inch barrel and i love it. When i go to the range it always comes along. over 30 years and tens of thousands of rounds and it still shoots great.
