    Question Which .22LR: Ruger SP101 or Single Ten or MKIII??

    In the market for my first .22LR handgun for some cheap plinking fun and trigger time. I have shot all three and enjoyed them all. Have narrowed it down to these three - which would you choose?

    Ruger SP101 4"

    or

    Ruger Single Ten?

    or

    Ruger MKIII Hunter?

    Thanks

    Not sure about the others, but I know the MKIII is not a revolver.

    If you are considering any .22 pistol, then you should also include the new Ruger SR22 pistol and the Walther P22 in your decision making.

    I have a Hunter. Great for targets. Another consideration could be a Beretta Neos. Cheaper, has a rail built on it. Super easy to take apart and accurate

    I have a Ruger single-six ,,,, I love to shoot it ,,,, I am assuming the single-ten
    would be at least 4 shots more fun.

    Sr22 if you want semi. Sp101 if you want a revolver.

    Only one opinion but I can' think of anything more tedious than spending an afternoon's plinking fun ejecting the empties out of a single action revolver and poking ten out is 66% more tedium than a single six.

    The MKIII is great for accuracy and does not compare in size or style as the two revolvers. They are all fun to shoot get what you like and enjoy.

    I've got two Ruger Marks... simply sweet guns to shoot. Some folks whine about how "hard" they are to reassemble, but it's not that big a deal once you've done it a couple of times. Don't let that noise keep you away from a gun you'll neither outgrownor wear out.

    mark III is my vote of those options. I love the sp101 just not for plinking purposes.

    I have a Ruger super single six, but may have gone the semi-auto route today.

    Does anyone have any insight as to how the SR22 pistol compares to the MKIIIs?

    I wonder if the quality is less in the SR22 as it seems to be about $150 to $200 less...

    Ruger is quality with out the high cost . For every dime you spend on a Ruger you get more value than you spend
