My wife wanted a 22 for her gun bag for Giftmas. It really does look just like this: Ruger® Mark III™ Competition Rimfire Pistol Models The thumb rest makes a one handed hold much much easier. I can't wait to get it to the range and shoot it. We already have one of the stainless Mk3 Target's. It's a really fun gun. I'm thinking that the competition will be a good companion.
