Which .22?

Wanted to get some input from the people who know... I've gone shooting twice in the past but am out of it at the moment because of my wrist. Looking at .22 for the least beating on my wrist when I can shoot again. I prefer semi-auto over revolver. I like the look of the Beretta Neo U22. Use would only be plinking/target (and hopefully never home defense but if needed.)

Discuss and recommend, please.

Namaste

To the times I'll never remember, with the friends I'll never forget.

Browning Buckmark
Many models to choose from
a little easier to clean than the Ruger MKIII

I like my Rugers, but I'd have to agree with the cleaning part.

My Ruger slabside might be a bit too heavy for you till your PT strengthens your wrist, but it's accurate as can be. I'm not sure what's out there that's lightweight.

Ruger
MKII or 22/45
You can mod the hell out of the Rugers It takes no effort to clean the Ruger once you get used to it in 10 minutes.

Go to rimfire central dot com very good info on there.

I like my buckmark a lot. Cheap ammo and great for just plinking around in the range.

If it's nothing serious and you already have a pistol you may want to just get a conversion kit. Conversion kits are not target grade but will be fun and do not need a 4473.

If your looking from the grond up, The Ruger is good buy and so is the Buckmark. If you plan on modding it, get the Ruger. If you will never have it worked on get the Browning. Stay away from the Walther P22 or the Neos.

S&W make an OK pistol, but for the money you could get a platform that's much more supported.

Don't plan on any modding. I checked out the rimfirecentral forum Paladin recommended (good stuff, rep coming) Think I'll probably be going with the Buckmark. Any particular one you guys would recommend over the other 23 buckman models?

i was looking at a walther P22. felt great in the hand.

Willard: When I was home after my first tour, it was worse. I'd wake up and there'd be nothing. I hardly said a word to my wife, until I said "yes" to a divorce. When I was here, I wanted to be there; when I was there, all I could think of was getting back into the jungle.

I saw the P22 on sale for $269 2 weeks ago at a sporting goods store on Rte. 72 by Rte. 59. I also know where you can get one w/ carbon fibre frame/receiver for $329. I was going to pick one up last February but it felt small so I ended up with a Sig Mosquito w/ a compensator. I like it better 'cause it's 90% the size of my P226. Ammo wise both pistols are picky so I use CCI mini mags and I have no problem with it.

I like the Contour, Hunter, or Bullseye.

See which feels the best.

IMO, Ruger MKIII target ftw. And yes it is a bit of a pain to clean.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

I have the Buckmark Hunter and I couldn't be happier with it. You get a longer (7" if I remember right) bull barrel, metal scope rail (as opposed to plastic on some of the other models), fiber optic front sight, and pretty wood grips.

I'm going to wait until after next wednesday when the cast comes off (and the pin comes out) so I can see how they all fit my hand. Even though I won't be able to support the weight with my right I should be able to tell comfort a little better.

I had a S&W 22A that I picked up cheap from Megasports. I was happy with the gun, but could never completely load the magazine. If I would load 10 rounds, it would almost always jam on the second shot. If I loaded 9 rounds, never had a problem. I think I paid $199 for it. For that money, it was a great gun.

Hi, my name is Matt, and I have a speeding problem

That is in its base form a Ruger MarkII slabside with a reddot site an a VQ compensator. Of course Ody has it tricked out with different internals and grips.

It is a very sweet piece.

Just bought a Beretta Neos U22 in all black 6" barrel. Just felt better in the hand that the Buckmark. Picking it up Saturday. Pics will follow.

Discovered an interesting fact... As a resident alien purchasing a gun you need to also provide utility bills showing that you've lived in the same place for 90 days. Weird.

Namaste
