    When it comes to rimfire ammo, my preference is for a revolver.

    Here is my take on the 22's I've shot. I don't really prefer one to the other as they each have a separate purpose.

    (My latest edition to the family) Wather P22 - Shoots great and so light I almost forget I have it with me. Never had a jam but I have noticed with some ammo it will not always feed the next round. Good ol' Remington Hollow Point Golden Bullets have never failed once through it though.

    Ruger Mark II - I am probably more accurate with this pistol than any I have ever fired (of course a 6.5 inch bull barrel never hurts :). No matter what ammo you feed it when you pull the trigger 99.99999% of the time it goes BANG and is ready to go again. It is a bit big though and when I go running out on the farm it slaps me in the leg.

    Smith and Wesson Mod. 617 - Great shooting gun, I did the range test for my CCW with it. To me it's hard to beat a good revolver but again it's a big gun to carry.

    I think it's mostly what you want to do with it. Carry or target plinking?

    Each to his own but I like the looks/performance of my Ruger.

    I appreciate the feedback. The only .22 pistols I've ever had were revolvers (still regret selling them) so I'm kind of leaning that way but I'd prefer more capacity for plinking. It's not every fun to have to constantly reload. That's all I'll be using it for, no desire to carry it.

    I own a Browning Buckmark and it's my favorite and most accurate pistol I own. As mentioned it feeds all kinds of ammo without issue and the trigger is sweet.

    Earlier this year they had a sale on S&W 22A's for $229. It's very accurate and reliable. But I prefer the grip and trigger a little better on the Buckmark. That said it's been a great pistol for what I paid for it.

    Good luck with your search.
