.22 Pistol

Recommended Posts

marine_man

Here's the deal: My dad is looking for a new .22 pistol for plinking. His only specs are It needs to be chambered for .22 LR, Semi Auto and in Stainless Steel finish. He's thinking either Ruger or Smith & Wesson, but is open to other options.

Any reccomendations?

Thanks!

I have a browning buckmark.I really like it. Very accurate and good looking. You can really deck them out if you want.

Ruger with a cheap red (Contact Us Please) scope is the way I go.

Get a few extra clips too. I load up on eggs when

they go on sale and hit the sand pit. Great way to

have good cheap fun.

The Ruger with a bull barrel is a great gun for the price. I have one that i have put thousands of rounds through. My only complaint is that it is a PITA to clean and as I'm sure you know the .22 rimrire is a filthy little cartridge. That being said, when it needs to be replaced I'll be getting another one.

I agree, the Ruger is a great gun for the money. Very reliable and accurate! Good luck!

The Ruger bull barrell is a great accurate gun. I had a S&W that shot very poorly. I took it back and they acknowledged that that particular model had problems. Traded up for the Ruger.

i agree the ruger with the bull barrel and a nice scope to boot also in stainless. i have a blued one and it looks intimadating and is a roit to shoot as far as clean up goes i always bring out a tarp to shoot over. clean up is a matter of folding up and pouring into a box. works great. ... paul

I'll second the Browning buckmark, its a nice handling gun. I got the camo model and love the unique look of it.

Thanks for the help everyone!

He's still undecided, but leaning toward a Ruger.

I own a berreta Neos, nice gun, only thing that gave me trouble was over oiled/greased mags, once cleaned, never gave me another problem... nicely balanced, good sized grips....I have also shot the buckmark and the smith and wesson, both really nice also....the berreta is loud, like all berreta I guess ( own two )

      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.

      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.
