    Stoeger Luger in 22lr. Shoots great and the mags can be loaded with the Ruger magloader.

    I have a Ruger MkII that is just great! Bought it back in 1986 while in flight school. Its NP to hit a pop can at 100 yards once you see where its aim point is! Great little bullet launcher!! :cool:

    The Ruger mkI 6" semi auto. I bought mine in the PX for $45.00 in 1975. I could bing those artic hares at 45 yards. After thousands of rounds it is still going strong. :D

    Favorite 22 Handgun, without question, Sig Hammerli Trailside, have the 6" and 4.5" Target models and am looking for another new one, (Sig ceased production) in case I wear them out. Excellent shooters, any amo, do not jam, accurate, maintenance is a snap.

    Great guns, no longer made.

    the ruger, the beretta neos, and the s&w 22a, because fo their ease of use, and takedown(not the ruger on this one) allthough im starting to get a hankering for a taurus tracker revolver which i think holds 8 or 9 rounds in a revolver!

    I have a Ciener on an old AMT hardballer frame... it shoots really well. It sees more range time than most of my other pistols.

    My true favorite is my Ruger Bearcat... it reminds me of a single action .22 my dad would let me shoot when I was a kid.

    They are all Connecticutt Hi Standards, except for the K-Frame Smiths, a M-70-S Beretta, and an American Walther TPH.
    Favorite for what???
    Target shooting, several Win 52's, and Rem 40-X's, shorter range targets, see above.
    PLEASE , define your space, before asking such a question!

    My S+W Pre 17 Target Masterpiece 6" K frame. Amazing for a 50+ year old gun.
    My 2 Ruger MKIIs-Gov't target and Slabside.
    The Gov't model has the Volquartsen trigger, sear, hammer, springs, and the Power Custom Ti firing pin. What a shooter!

    Another vote for the Trailside, I love mine. Have run about 2000 rounds through it in the last few months. Makes the old geezer here look better than he is. Ditched the original magazine and cured the occasional stovepipe with two new mags from the very nice folks at Larry's Guns.

    Have 2 that I shoot regularly. Both old Rugers, one is a Single Six from the early 60s and the other is a Bearcat from the late 50s. Great plinking and squirrel guns out to may be 20 yds. for me.
