Here are a few choices that have been suggested. Which of these do you like? If you have another, please list:

-- Beretta Neo
-- Smith 22A
-- Colt Woodsman
-- Browning Buckmark
-- Browning Challenger
-- Ruger Mark II
-- Ruger Mark III
A Ruger Mark II has served me well.

Default Ruger Mark II

The very last shot I made with mine took a turtles head off at around 50 yrds. I didn't investigate but the guy sitting beside me said that he would have had a hard time making that shot with a rifle.

Default Old but reliable

I have a Woodsman and a High Standard HD military .22 with the longer barrel. I can't speak to new technology as they are both quite old (1950-1), but they are in great shape. The Woodsman is a nice plinking gun and extremely reliable, a great learning weapon. The High Standard is a little picky about ammo but is far more accurate (night and day). My father shot competitively with it.

Re-opened an old Thread Huh?

I had a MkII long ago. Now we have an Older Buckmark from about 10 Years ago, no plastic on this one, the Grips are the Herritt's Wood and they are pretty. My 22/45 has replacement wood for the orig. Plastic ones...
