Alway keep your six covered
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. http://www.larrysguns.com/

I was taught to respect my elders but they are getting harder to find.
The 22A is a great starter budget pistol I always recommend it for new shooters getting into the sport. I prefer the ruger, it tends to be a bit more expensive.
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 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?
