    I don't own any .22 handguns but I can tell you which one I hate. Walther P22. Complete piece of garbage in my experience.
    1. Unless you have hands like a child, it will not fit/be comfortable, it's way too small.
    2. It jams very easily (don't even try to shoot high-thumbs)
    3. It's wildly inaccurate even at 20 feet.

    I like my MkIII. It's a very accurate gun which is fun to shoot with Red Dot. It also helps for cheap practice and discipline.

    my new S&W 22a in 7" is an outstanding .22. I have owned a colt and a ruger and I like the smith better.

    I think I would probably have to say the Ruger Mark III. They're amazing pistols that will last FOREVER. I know 2 that we have worn out the firing pins in, and everything else works perfectly find in the pistol, lol. They're also arguably the most accurate pistol EVER made of any caliber, but especially with the .22 LR. I think it's funny that DanP really hates the Walther P22. I actually own one, the P22 Target model and don't mind it that much. I've never had the gun jam, but the recoil springs are sometimes a bit light, and the first round of a new clip sometimes you just barely gotta touch the slide, and it'll go. The Walther P22 is NOT a gun that will fire well when it gets dirty, it has to be cleaned fairly often. I put 350 or 400 the other day and still hadn't had it jam, but it was very dirty. The target model is a bit more of a chore to clean than the others, because you have to remove the stabilizer every time you clean the gun, but I've found the P22 target to be pretty accurate, especially from a rest. Is the Walther even close to the Mark III in accuracy, naw, but it's still a very fun pistol. It does have a small frame, but with the mags that the grip extension, it's pretty comfortable. Overall, I'd probably day so with a Mark III, unless you want a futuristic "race gun" style pistol.

    Default Ruger

    Got to say the Ruger is hard to beat, I am more familiar with the mark ll but there was no drastic change in the mark lll. Wife owns a beautiful Ruger single 6 from back in 1958, if you like single action its hard to beat, and we also have a Neos, beretta's new .22, it shoots well but the rear sight is plastic, needs to be glued in place once you get the windage right...

    I have had NOTHING but jaming issues wth my ruger mark III. Even had an expert smith look at it and he could not fix it. Id never buy another. Impossible to break down easy to clean to. Old school old thinking gun. No thanks..

    Default Ruger Mark III

    Are you sure you don't have a 22/45 AKA the P-512. I know those jam up pretty quickly. The Mark I and II I ever used where work horses that worked even dirty, some even might say they worked better dirty!

    The 22/45 supposedly made to imitate the 1911 has a slight angle difference to the mark III on the mag, and the bullet pickup just doesn't happen as smoothly.

    Default BuckMark

    Browning BuckMark. It shoots very well and is easy to takedown when I get the inclination to clean it.
