Due to the high expensive of larger calibers such as 9mm, .40, and .45 I am in the market for a .22 pistol to practice with.
Here is the catch though I am looking for the best option that is closest in size, build, barrel length, and operation to your typical full size to compact carry weapon. I am not really interested in ones with longer than normal barrels as the purpose of this weapon will be to realistically let me simulate draw and fire drills without going broke at the same time.
I now own a full size SW 1911 and M&P 40c so something close in size and operation to those would be nice. Doesn't have to be exact just in the ball park.
Thanks in advance,
