    By the way, I had a Walther P22 and it was a piece of junk compared to the SR22.

    Out of the list I would go with the Ruger. I am also interested in the S&W M&P22. Over all of them I would go with a Ruger MK type.

    Ruger SR22.

    I don't like the Mark Series. Hard to take down, and really don't emulate any other gun I own with which to practice. I like a .22 to be as close to a carry gun as I can get for cheap practice purposes.

    Buckmark, blah.

    Walther P22? Not SR quality by a long shot. Nice, but not quite as much.

    Ruger is owning this.:)

    My P22 has been flawless with CCI ammo. That being said, I voted SR22. Aluminum slide vs Zinc Alloy. The SR22 wasn't around when I bought my P22. Checkout the Smith M&P22 if wanting a tactical type pistola.

    I wonder how this poll would have gone if the M&P22 had been an option. I own both the SR22 as well as the M&P22 and I can say that would be a tough choice!!!

    I have an sr22 with only 600 or so rounds down the tube so far. If I could get more ammo it would have more.
    Anyway, I wanted a mkIII 22/45 but went with the sr because I though it would be easier for my daughters to shoot and operate. It really is fun to shoot. Do I wish it was a little more accurate? Yes, but it's not supposed to be a target pistol. One day I'd still like to get the mkIII, but the sr22 fit the bill at the time.

    Ruger Mark II accurate.

    Browning 1911 A1 .22 cute little pocket pistol, reliable.

    Still, the Ruger is a Real gun.

    Had a P-22 and could not get rid of it fast enough. Junk IMO

    My two Ruger Mk II target models are going nowhere.

    I really want to like the Walther because it looks fantastic. Everything I've heard and read is that one should steer clear. :-/

    Where could you have possibly got that idea, wait maybe this poll?

    If 89 to 8 in favor of the SR22 over the Walther might be a hint and personally I like the looks of the SR22 better than the Walther, although I have never purchased a pistol based on how it looks.

    I too really wanted to like the Walther. It looked good and felt good in the hand. However after multiple FTFeed with various ammo, coupled with the fact that the front sight fell off three times in less than 100 rounds, I sent it down the road. Traded for a NIB Ruger 10/22 with a nice walnut stock. Straight up.

    I'm with you Coal Dragger, the Ruger and Browning are nice guns but the S&W 41 is definitely the way to go if finances allow it. Also, I'm surprised it took so long to mention the S&W 41.

    If you've got the bucks for a M41, you've got enough for a used Pardini SP, which is a superior target pistol to the M41 in every respect.

    As a general purpose, very accurate and rugged .22RF, I don't think you can beat the Ruger Mk series. Sure, their triggers aren't the best but there are many after-market options to improve that, and then they can even hold their own on most bullseye ranges. The S&W 41 or the older HS models are other good ones; just alot more money for not alot more performance IMHO.

    I don't consider the P22 or the Skeeter to really be pistols at all. Just inexpensive copies and look alikes of CF combat firearms.
