What is your favorite, most reliable .22 LR pistol. I've been thinking about adding the Ruger SR22 to my collection, but have heard of some reliability issues.
It will only be used for a cheap plinking range toy so I guess reliability isn't such a huge thing.
What is your favorite .22 plinker?

When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

A 9MM MAY expand to .45 but a 45ACP will never shrink to 9MM.
My favorite and my most reliable are two different guns.
The favorite is my Sig Mosquito. Feeding and firing have been reliable but the slide suffered a catastrophic failure. I had to replace it with a GSG Firefly slide.
My most reliable is the M&P22C and M&P22 Fullsize. Boring reliability and accurate enough for plinking fun.
Take your pick. All of them are reliable and accurate as the day is long.

My SEAL contract overrun Ruger MKII.
Arkancide- Three self-inflicted gunshots to the head with hands tied behind the back.
Active Shooter Response- Assess the situation, Position yourself to gain tactical advantage, Engage perpetrator violently (APE).
I had a Buckmark when I was a kid, wish I still had it. I remember it being scary accurate. I'll add that one to my list of possibilities.
Don't currently have a .22 pistol but have had a lot of different ones in the past. I have a Kimber 1911 slide and barrel set up for .22lr, I put that on any of my 1911 frames and it runs flawless and plenty accurate.

My favorite 22 long gun would be the lightweight, ugly, 100% flawless functioning...cheap looking Remington Nylon 66.
The SINGER SEWING MACHINE of rimfire rifles. Lowly unstoppable king of plinkers.

My S&W M&P 22 Compact will shoot crappy ammo that would choke in my 10/22!

Ruger MkII target two tone. Bought it in 1990 I think.

Read our government's plan to destroy the Constitution.
I really like my Ruger MkIII 22/45. Very accurate, very reliable and not too picky about what ammo it's fed.
That thing is a nightmare to disassemble/reassemble.
A pal has a Browning Buckmark and if I had it to do over again, that's what I'd have instead.

Love my Ruger MKIII bull barrel Target Model. Also love my SP101 22LR.
If we're throwing in rifles too, hard to beat a 10/22.
