    Unhappy I need some suggestions

    I've had it with semi auto 22 caliber pistols. I find them to be more trouble than they're worth. How about some recommendations on a 22 caliber revolver, at least if the primer doesn't go off I can pull the trigger again and I will not have to clear a jam. Joe

    Ruger Single Six.

    I'm curious though which semi autos are giving you so much grief. If none of them say Ruger on the side, maybe start there.

    Have you tried different ammo? Some .22 semi-autos don't like certain brands of ammo.

    I have a Smith and Wesson Model 617. My first gun. A little pricey but reliable.

    My Ruger never fails with CCI Mini Mags, many other brands have had failures.

    I'm on a similar hunt, but for 22 mag for purely self defense reasons (recent thread on 8 and 9 shot revolvers in 22 mag). As other have said, the ammo could absolutely be a factor with a semiauto. Example being my wife's Walther...wont run anything but high velocity. Rugers MK series (MK 1/2/3/4) is generally very well regarded and tends to function with most types of ammo. Mines been fantastic through 1000s of rounds, and was well used when I got it. If I keep it clean(ish), it always runs right.

    That said, if you're set on a revolver, the big question would be if you want single or double action. If single, Ruger Single Six or Wrangler, Heritage Rough Rider, or many of the older H&R models would fit the bill. Many single action will be old west style without a swing out cylinder, if that matters. If double action, you've got the Ruger LCRx and LCR, Taurus 992/942/94, a slew of S&Ws (there's a bunch of them and I'm no S&W expert...617 and some of the model 17s though, I think), a handful of the older H&Rs yet again plus some of the High Standard line.

    I think the Wrangler is a good choice. Not a work of art, but seems much better constructed than a Heritage Rough Rider, and they can still be found for under $200. I just can't see spending $500 for something like a used Single Six. Don't get me wrong, they are very well made (well, at least older ones), but $500 for a .22?

    But if you just want to pull the trigger, now you're in DA territory and expect to spend some coin. Unless you can find a decent deal on a High Standard Double Nine or Sentinel. Last year I got a Sentinel for like $200. Not a museum piece, but pretty well made and very reliable.
