First..I would like to thank all of you. I bought my first handgun (Smith & Wesson sd40ve) a few weeks back and have been glued to these forums ever since. You have provided a wealth of useful info. Second..I know have the fever and am already looking at my next purchase. I have been looking at .22 calibers for plinking and such. I have looked at lot of diff. Options such as chiappa 1911-22, cimarron plinkster, and even a m&p. I like the cowboy action/style and think it might be fun but have also read a lot regarding a rimfire feeling the same as your HD/EDC (hence m&p) . I know the ultimate answer is that it is all in what I want out of a gun but since this is a rimfire..I am not sure. Thanks in advance for any advice.
