Never go wrong getting a Ruger.

I have owned 6 Ruger .22 LR pistols in my life.

Two different Ruger Standard (original versions before they had a Mark I, II or III). First one I sold back in the '80s when I hit a rough financial patch.

Replaced the Standard with an identical pistol (4.75" barrel). Shot it for years. Ended up giving to my son when he asked for it.

Ruger Mark II, SS 6". Installed a Volquartsen sear in it. Most perfect shooting pistol I have ever owned. Operates flawlessly with any ammo and incredible accurate. I will never sell this pistol (my daughter is inheriting this one).

Ruger SR22. Fun, double action pistol. Not as accurate as Mark II (neither is anything else I own). Son wanted it so I let him have it. Really nice pistol.

Ruger Single Six (convertable). Traded a Winchester 94 30-30 for it last year. I feel like I came out ahead on the deal. 50 year anniversary model, never been fired. I fixed that foolishness the following weekend. Neat to shoot, but again it is not a inhumanly accurate as the Mark II. I like it a lot, but could bear to part with it.

Ruger Mark II, 10 shots at 21 feet. Iron sights, off hand, average groupings. I pick different parts of the target for each magazine.

I am going to be getting a second SR22 as soon as the threaded barrel versions become available. This pistol will make be a perfect suppressor host.

P.S. Does is say something bad about me that I can spell Volquartsen correctly without having to look it up?
Guys! Guys! He's down! Stop kicking him! If he shows up on another thread, Tasers are indicated, but for now, let him slink off into the shadows to lick his wounds and ponder how deeply cool and misunderstood he is!
