I am looking for a good .22lr pistol here are my requirements

at least a 6" barrel
blued
under 500.00
reliable

I was looking at ruger and smith-wesson but am open to others. I would be using it for plinking and coon hunting so id like sights that do well in the dark.
I like rugers line up and have used them in the past but there a bit on the pricey side of my buget. I liked the look of the Smith-Wesson 22A but I have no experience with them so I have know idea if there anygood. What are some suggestions.

Ruger MKIII is a really decent pistol its a 5.5inch barrel. The bull barrel target model shoots extremely well. Not to mention volquartsen makes a bunch of modifications for it.

Cant beat Rugers or the lower end Smiths (unless your spending thousands on a custom Smith)

I was going to say fast women and hard booze.

What Ruger did you look at that was in the 500.00 range?

You might take a look at a S&W 422. Semi-auto discontinued a few years ago but inexpensive, reliable and decent in the accuracy dept.

Ruger makes several of their .22 models with a fiber optic front sight, which should be helpful in your coon hunting if you have at least moonlight. Or you could add one.

Ive got a mark II Ruger, bull barrel with compensator, its a nice gun. Ive also got a Taurus 94 with a 5" barrel ...... Da is heavy, but the single action is crisp. It was about $100 less than my Ruger.

Colt woodsman... Fun gun to shoot... older though

I would say go with the Ruger. Target barrel on those makes that a nice looking gun. Saw one used 4" target barrel, blued in my local shop for $270.

The mark III hunter but its stailess and I'd strongly prefer blued.

The bull barrel one was only 405 and it was blued but it didn't have high vis sight. I guess those could be added later if i did get it.

I was curious as to which shoots better the ruger or smith-wesson 22A the max range i would be using it on would be 25 yards. I like to be able to keep my groups inside a 50 cent piece at the most with out scopes of course.

Put your money in the bank. We're in a recession, well at least some of us are. I guess guns are a pretty good investment though. I should more some of my stocks into Ruger, Springfield, S&W and Colt.

FN Medaillist (if you have those in your region)
Browning buckmark

I would buy one of those if I was in the market for a target pistol
