    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.

    Welcome Popplecop
  12. Ruger 22/45 with bull barrel for me. It's the most accurate .22 handgun I've ever shot.

    By the way, welcome to TFF, Popplecop!

    Ruger Single Six, I have had mine since the early 70's. It is the old three screw model. Thousands of rounds and not a single problem. It's just fun to shoot. I have owned a lot of .22 pistols over the years, but the Ruger has been my favorite.

    Browning Buck Mark "Pro Target", I just purchased this one and am looking forward to taking it out shooting. I am leaning towards putting a red dot on it, but will wait and see how I like shooting it with the iron sights.

    I like my new Browning Buckmark that I just picked up a few days ago.
    Second is a Ruger MKII.
    I also like the Ruger Single Six.

    S&W 22S. Fun gun and accurate. These two targets were the first two mags out of the gun when I bought it. Thinking about putting a red dot on it now.

    and this one:

    Heritage Rough Rider. Not bad for the money actually. My wife prefers to shoot this one over the 22S. Her loss. :D
