Now that I have all of my carry gear established I am ready to start saving for my next firearm purchase. I already have a 22 rifle (Marlin model 60), center fire rifle (Marlin 336 in 30-30), and a center fire handgun (Glock 19). I want my next purchase to be a 22 caliber pistol. I have seen with my rifle shooting how much a 22 caliber can add to practice time and skill development. So I am looking for a 22 caliber semiauto pistol to compliment my Glock 19.
The three pistols I am looking at are the S&W 22A, Ruger Mark III, and the Walther P22.
My first impression of the guns is that the Walther will probably be the most helpful since it seems most similar to my Glock. Although, the 22A is the one that catches my eye the most. And the Mark III is the only one of the three I have actually shot. I was personally pretty impressed with the trigger, but the one I shot had a red dot mounted on top so I did not get a good feel for the stock sights. I am looking for some input from some of you guys that own some of these guns. I know some 22s can be a huge pain to clean so any details on take down and cleaning for these guns would be great. I am really just looking for more information both good and bad about these three pistols.
