    I have a beretta 92fs and a ruger mark 3 but I really just want something new... It'll be used mostly for plinking. I know this is a semi auto pistol forum but I would take suggestions of a revolver or a rifle. (I have a 10/22 and cz 204) I don't really have a price range but I would like to keep it on the smaller caliber size probably anything smaller thank a 44 magnum

    How about a Ruger carbine in 9mm or 40 SW? I have a 9. It's fun to shoot and very accurate and easy to shoot

    Well..Thing is everyone has a fav that you might not have. So you will get 100 replies with maybe 100 different options. Have you made ground then? NO

    You don't seem to have as 357..get one.

    a revolver in 357 makes a fine range pistol.

    or buy a 1911 in 45.

    I've got a fairly short mental list of guns that EVERYBODY should have at least one of.

    Up towards the top is: 4" double action 357 magnum with adjustable sights.
    Personally I'm a sucker for pinned and recessed S&W model 19's--but there is
    nothing wrong with a Ruger or Dan Wesson, or even a Taurus if you get a good one.

    Shoot it with cowboy 38's for plinkin' and training the kids, 38 special for general
    target shooting, and 357 for hunting and serious social situations. Treat it right,
    and someday in the future some kid is going to get a kick out of shooting
    grandpa's old revolver.

    BillM's suggestion is excellent or an S&W 586.

    Another couple of fun plinkers I own that are inexpensive are the Heritage Arms, Rough Rider in .22lr/.22wmr, and the Hi-Point 995ts, which is a 9mm carbine, also available in .40 S&W and .45 acp. The Heritage & Hi-points are all available somewhere below $300.00.

    If it is primarily for plinking, get a 9MM or a .45 acp.
    The ammo is reasonably priced, available, and they both make big enough holes in a target that you can see them without having to walk downrange. There are several semiautos on the market with 5" or even 6" barrels, so it would seem that they should be pretty accurate.
    As an added benefit, whenever the weather would allow you to wear clothes that could conceal it, either would make a good defensive piece.

    A good 9 or .45 is a great addition. A 1911 is great or maybe a SIG in 9mm. Both are great range, HD and depending on your states laws can be great for SD as well.
    I own a 22/45, nano (9mm), a SIG 1911 and p229. The 22/45 and Nano got with me every trip to the range and I switch off between the 1911 and 229. .45 ammo is a bit pricey nowadays though.

    9mm, ammo is cheap enough to practice at the range! Yet the caliber is Sufficient for HD

    A Ruger SR9 might be the best value in a handgun imo....rugged, accurate and Ruger. 9mm ammo is amongst the most inexpensive centerfire ammo you can buy which allows for more plinking.

    My personal favorite is my Sig 226 Mk 25 but it is a little pricey and I don't know what your budget is. In addition, I really enjoy my M&P Pro Series 5.25. Good value and extremely accurate.

    A good S&W .357 Magnum revolver will serve you well.
