What recommendations for a new .22 handgun? I am open to semi auto or revolver, and would like some of your recommendations on what to get, as well as what I should stay away from. Thanks.....

Bought my Ruger Single Six brand new 55 years ago - it still runs smooth as butter after thousands of rounds:



There are several variations of it nowadays, all excellent choices. Check out the S&W wheelguns too.

Then there are loads of .22 semiautos (Rugers included) that are great guns.

Will you be carrying or target shooting?
I love my Ruger semi auto target gun.

I have a couple old Ruger Single Sixes, love them. One I bought new in 1982 and a old three screw in pristine condition.
The one I miss was a old High Standard - Double Nine. Looked and felt like a Single Six but it was double action with a swing out cylinder and nine shot.

I love my Sig Sauer 1911-22. Retail is about $400.

Got a Single Six as well. One of my favorite guns. Also like the Mark series. Either one is more accurate than I am.

I have a small 5 shot NAA Mini-Revolver that I've had for many years...

North American Arms 22 Long Rifle Mini-Revolvers

Of one those "better than nothing" guns... or "I'm in serious trouble to pull this out" guns...

Very accurate within 5 ft (accurate for what it is). I practice with it... but don't enjoy shooting it. But it might be the gun that really saves me... so I put time with it.

I've got about five favorites.

Heritage Rough Rider or Ruger Single Six for plinking and introduction for new shooters.

GSG for just having fun.

Browning Buckmark Whisper silenced for shooting crows in the backyard without alerting the neighbors.

Ruger SR22 for more fun with less clean up that the GSG.

last year i had handed down to me thru my inlaws, a 50's Colt Challenger which was actually my 1st gun, even at its age it is a great little shooter. I then picked up a new Browning Buckmark, compared to other .22's I have tried it has been my favorite for fun at the range, etc.
I dont have years of experience to offer like many here on this forum, but seems Buckmarks have a lot of fans and they are offered in a variety of models (finishes, grip styles) to fit one's needs.
