    Mine is an old favorite. Ruger MkII. An Uncle had one and I loved it, so much that I had to get one later in life for my own. PITA to clean and take apart and put together but the best shooting-est .22 pistol I've ever owned.

    Taurus 92 Small Frame-only revolver I own

    Ruger Mark III 22/45-more accurate than my Colt 1911 so it wins. Both are great guns.

    Savage Mark II BV to put small groups on paper, S&W M&P 15-22 for plinking fun at the range.

    I own many more .22s but these are my favorites. At least 4 are with me every time we go to the range. Sometimes the Savage stays home if we're not feeling like shooting small groups at longer ranges.

    Kind of a toss up between my Ruger Bearcat and Browning Buckmark. They're both fun to shoot.

    Taurus 92 is a centerfire, therefore not eligible.[and not a revolver]

    I just acquired a Flobert Breech Loading Practice Pistol, calibre #1 (6mm rim fire BB cap). Just think, in Paris, in 1848, you could go to the store and buy a pistol and a box of shells to shoot for fun. It would be almost a decade before that level of engineering came to America. The bore is rough, so I will make an interchangeable barrel from a the middle part of a scrap 22RF octagon rifle barrel. Picture in a few days.

    Only own two .22 rimfire handguns; S&W 1st Model 2nd Issue (1861 mfg.) - no I've no idea how it shoots, and a S&W 18-4 which shoots exceedingly well. There's a beautiful Colt New Frontier for sale locally which I've had my eye on for a few weeks. Don't want to show too much interest in it till I'm ready to pounce and just buy it, or dicker, trade etc. We shall see.
