    The German manuf. PP. Blue. Not a target gun, but pretty accurate, given the short bbl length.

    100% reliable.

    Great fun.

    Aesthetically, the most pleasant handgun I have ever seen.

    High Standard Trophy, 1978 model. I bought it new from my friendly local dealer when I lived in the boondocks of Michigan. I wanted the Victor, but even the less expensive Trophy was more than I could really afford. I competed with it several years, then took up computing, graphic design, typography, art, et cetera. I left it in a bank box nearly twenty years. I took it home to clean it once every two or three years, but left it unfired all that time.

    When I resumed shooting about 1995, I swabbed the residue of old oil out of the barrel and wiped off the magazine lips, and the Trophy shot just fine. I didn't, but the pistol did. I've since purchased any number of .22 caliber pistols, including two High Standard Victors, and am thinking about treating myself to a Volquartsen, but the Trophy remains the best of the lot. It's never failed to feed. It's never failed to extract. It failed to fire some old Remington ammunition, but hasn't ever failed to fire new ammunition. It's still considerably more accurate than I've ever been or could hope to be. I had a gunsmith replace all the springs a year or two ago, but that went under the rubric of preventive maintenance.

    High Standards were always something of a hit or miss proposition, especially the late models, but this particular Trophy is a champion among champions—which is why it still spends most of its time in a bank box.

    I'm a fan of the Browning Buckmark. Have both standard and silhouette models.

    In semi-autos it's the Browning BuckMark... I have several different ones, but my favorite is the 4" barrel Micro model.

    In revolvers it's the S&W Kit guns, I have several of these as well, and my favorite is probably the model 43, with airweight frame and 3.5" barrel.

    22/45 or Mk II for price.

    The 41 without regards to the price tag.

    My favorite autoloading .22 is my 5" "Optics-only" S&W Model 41 with a red-dot sight. It is amazing with CCI Standard Velocity ammo. Hard to beat for fun shooting.
