i like the 5.5"

i know the CAS people like the real short for draw games, and longer for target/long range but the 5.5 is a good medium; and carries really well in the holster.

are you looking at a .22 or centerfire? the price on the 22 is hard to argue with; but the centerfires are in the ruger range...

The short barrel carries easier in a holster, especially when setting down in a car, without poking in the seat & your ribs, etc.

The longer barrel gives higher velocity, and a longer sight radius, which should improve your ability to hit things.

If you plan to holster carry during normal daily activities, get the short one.
If you plan to use it more as a range gun, get the longer one.
