    A little space gun like but I bought one a couple of weeks ago. 600 rounds down range and not one issue.
    Darn good for a 22 pistol.
    Had a Sig 22 but couldn't get through 3 mags without a failure and I really like Sigs.

    Another vote for the Ruger 22/45. Mine runs perfectly. Hardly ever clean it. It shoots anything I feed it. Everyone that has ever shot mine liked it a lot.

    I say the Browning Buckmark. Mine is about 20 years old and has never had a ftf or a fte until my last range visit. It wasn't the guns fault though, a case spilt and jammed in the chamber. I knocked out out with a cleaning rod, checked the barrel and chamber and then put another 100 rounds through it with no more problems.

    I prefer the 22/45 as well. The Browning Buckmark is also good.

    Local gun shop has a colt gold cup .22 for $350. Beautiful gun. Matches my .45 gold cup.

    For a young lady's first pistol I think that the SR22P is hard to beat. I also like the idea of a Single Six or Ten simply because these are such friendly handguns to shoot. And they are so beautifully made that they tend to appeal to the ladies, which is all to the good.
    The 22/45 and Mark II or III are also good choices. You won't go wrong with any of these.

    the Ruger Mark III 22/45 is a good choice and one i have and recommend and is right in your price range. the Browning Buckmark is also an excellent pistol, but might exceed your budget. the Ruger is very user friendly and very accurate. mine new was about $270 NIB. they have been around for quite a number of years.

    GSG 1911 style .22 is worthy of a look-see.

    Beretta Neos seems pretty good to me. Picked up one at a local Academy for less than 250. Ran a box of Win X HV thru it testing it out. No problems at all. Super easy to break down for cleaning. Will break it in this weekend with 500 rnds of MM. Also picked up some extra mags from MGW for less than $22 a piece total.
