    What kind of .22 pistol should I buy?

    Rugers always Rugers. Ask for a Ruger .22 pistol and they will give you all sorts of arrangements.

      The Ruger MarkII is an excellent .22 pistol. Very accurate, reliable and affordable.

        Rugers are reliable and not expensive either. I recommend them, just like Squizzy and rabbitpolic did.

            I would go with a Walther p22 about $300 or a Sig 22 about $300-350.

              I will break away from previous commenters and say the Browning Buckmark. I like the look of the new URX. In my opinion they are better finished and have better ergonomics than the Rugers. There are a heck of alot more aftermarket things for Rugers so if you want to trick it out they are the better choice. But for out of the box performance Brownings look better, have a better trigger, and in my experience are more accurate. Not much more expensive either.

                Forgot to add that if you have a 1911 that you like already get the Kimber conversion. I love mine.

                  I have a stainless Ruger Mark II Government Target .22 autoloader topped with a Burris 2X EER scope. It shoots as accurately from rest at 25 and 50 yards as my Rem 580 .22LR single-shot bolt action rifle. I'm very pleased with it, of course, but I cannot overlook the fact that there are other .22 rimfire revolvers and autoloaders that merit praise.
                  I've been very pleased with the S&W Model 17 .22LR and Model 48 .22 Mag revolvers, as well as the Ruger Single-Six revolver also, but these handguns were not scope-mounted.
                  Be patient in your quest, handle as many handguns that look interesting and promising to you. Develop a concept of how you'd like to accessorize it (e.g., do you intend to scope it?) and make choices compatible with your concept. While visiting the range, I have rarely refused another shooter's request to try my rimfire handguns on the firing line. If you see a sidearm in a gunshop that bears closer examination, take a look at it, ask for objective shooter feedback, and do some homework on it so you can purchase with confidence. Then practice frequently and enjoy every moment with your decision. Understand that you have a number of choices, all of which are excellent, so it's a win-win situation. You simply have to find the model you particularly appreciate, and I wish you a great experience in your purchase, on the range and in the field.

                    A good Ruger standard 6 inch barrel Mark II will do you just fine and the extra whatever would be extra weight.

                    In Alaska I used a 22 6 inch barrel Ruger Mark II for Grouse and rabbits. Here in Arkansas I use it for squirrel hunting.

                      Ruger Single Six. I love it because it can shoot .22 mags as well.

                          For revolvers go with a Smith 17 or maybe a 34 if you can handle the little J frame. Of course the Ruger Single Sixes of various styles will provide reliable fun and last forever. They are simply slower to reload. Ruger semi-autos, on the other hand, are great shooters for the money. For more bucks you will never go wrong with a Smith M-41 in either barrel length. If you can locate an old Colt Woodsman or Browning Medalist they are fantastic shooters but are beginning to get a little pricy for used pistols.
