I have a Browning Buckmark and it is a tack driver. Under $500 with the sight.

If you can find one, used of course, the Sig Hamerli Trailside. is a very nice pistol. They made a target model and a fixed sight field gun. It is very easy to change the sights on the field gun but get the target model if you can. Their one weakness is a small easily replaceable spring. The spring and rear sight can be obtained at the following link.

Btw you said colt huntsman, you do realize what you have there,right?
Oh yeah, MountainMan, I am an old Colt fan. I sure wish they would get back into the consumer game

I picked up a Ruger SR22. So far I like it. Beats shooting my 40s or 45. I have just about 8k rounds of 22 so it will keep me busy for a while. Lol.

You could do a lot worse than a Brown Buckmark . Factory grips are very ergo.

I know you said pistol....but would you consider a revolver? A lot of 22 revolvers available from many mfg. And revolvers are always fun for target plinking. I"ve got a cheap Heritage which is fun to shoot. Anything serious you want to do, or just playing around?
