Don't get me wrong. I recommend Glocks to my friends. They go bang every time the trigger is pulled, and do it with acceptable accuracy. And they point very naturally in my hand.

But due to advancing arthritis, even the full size 9mm causes me much pain when shooting. Which is not a problem with DA or SA revolvers, or my 1911s.

I have a Kimber 22 conversion on a Kimber alloy frame, and I love it. But it only runs reliably with Stingers.

And there is just one. So maybe it is time for another 22 when multiple grandkids go to the range.

The Glock 44 sounds ideal, except I do not need to train with a Glock.

The old dependable Ruger mark I/II/III? The Ruger 22/45?

Suggestions?

Thoughts on the Beretta M9 22?

Hard to go wrong with a Ruger Mk of some kind or a Browning Buckmark. Have had a Glock 44 and won't get into it with all those folks who gushed over theirs on that thread but mine just didn't have the real precision accuracy of either the Ruger or Browning.

If you want more of a fun blaster the Glock certainly fits the bill, as would a S&W M&P or in a smaller package a Ruger SR22.

To me hands down the finest is the S&W mdl 41........spendy and hard to find

second best and still very good Ruger MKIII stay away from the 22/45.....Fhuqk the Glock

I got Ruger mk ii and g44, but I’d love to try a browning buck mark.

For many years I've enjoyed shooting my very accurate Browning Challenger (original model). If you can find one in good condition and buy it, I think you'll be pleased with it.

Ruger MK IV or Ruger 22/45 LITE, maybe a SR22. Some versions of the Browning Buckmark would be good. S&W Victory or M&P .22 would be equally good. There are a lot of excellent options. Hard to not like a good .22 handgun! Not quite sure I follow your thought process of the Glock sounding ideal, but you don't need to train with a Glock. If this .22 is meant to be a trainer buy one that models after whatever centerfire you are training with. Otherwise if the Glock is ideal, buy the Glock because it fits your needs. If it works ideally then it has merit on its own.

The High Standard Trophy is extremely accurate as is the Victor.



I got banned on another web site for a debate that happened on this site. That's a first

I’m pretty partial to the Ruger Mark’s…..we’ve got a few of the 22/45’s lying around here somewhere! memtb

Browning 1911 would be another fun option.

22/45 or buckmark are excellent and probably available again. I like the safety on buckmark better

I really like both my Ruger MkI and 22/45 pistols. My all time favorite though is the Sig Sauer 1911-22. Smooth and deadly with identical feel to my other 1911's.

I have a .22 conversion unit on my Sig Sauer P226 that I like really well.

I found several Ruger Mk I-IV and a couple Buckmarks. $400ish OKAY. Sent 'em to bookmarks.

Then I stumbled across

Dang, this might cost me more than I anticipated.

It sure is purty.

I have an older 22/45 that has been flawless, yet it stays at home most of the time.

Wouldn't mind a Buckmark

Cz Kadet kit on my cz P01 is pretty legit. It gets pissy if you don't clean it every 1500 rounds or so

I have a marvels unit one. Was a pissy SOB for a few thousand rounds. Then it settled in. Very accurate,, has seen nothing but Aguila and blazer ammo. Needs cleaned every 500 rounds or so to keep running. A red dot and 16 round mags made it even better. By far my most shot rimfire, these days

I failed to mention my wife’s Sig 938 with the 22 conversion! However, if you primarily wanting a 22…..that’s a pricey way to get there! memtb

Yes, logic dictates the $350-$400 Ruger Mark, or even the Browning, possibly a Colt/Walther.

Lust has me drooling over the 1977 Colt target. I am leaning heavily away from logic.

Fitting thread. I had my Ruger mk2 out today. Getting it dialed in for an upcoming bowling pin shoot. Upgraded the red dot for quicker target acquisition over the old Bushnell TRS25. 5 pins should be sub 2 seconds now.
