    I’m thinking my Single Six (unmolested). Love the sound, action and feel.

    My Ruger single six. Its as accurate as a rifle. 100_1748.JPG
    I have a Ruger mark111. Also very accurate but a bear to clean. My S&W Victory is ok but both Rugers are much better.

    I picked up an AMT Automag a few years ago. It was so much fun to shoot and superbly accurate - I let my #2 son talk me out of it.

    I have been thinning the herd down to the guns I shoot and getting rid of most everything else. I was left with only my Ruger Mark III Hunter which is just a pleasure to shoot. I found it a very easy to shoot well handgun. But that darned gun bug bit me this winter and I purchased a Ruger Mark IV 22/45 Lite. For some reason as I get older pistols are getting heavier so I wanted to test out the Lite pistol. I have been shooting it in my basement into a bullet trap and I think it will be a joy also. I have Volquartzen trigger kits in both of these pistols and I love that light trigger pull. I have never measured it but it is light. It seems to be safe and passes all the safety tests with both handguns. My back problems have kept me from the range this winter but hopefully I and the Old Guys can live through this virus scare and make to the woods for some fun.

    I am showing the mark 3 is going on average of $500.00 for stainless.
    How accurate is this?

    My two favorites are both Rugers, a 1962 22/22 mag convertible and a 1969 Mk 1 bull barrel..

    Don't have a favorite when it comes to 22's, I love all of them it is easier to choose a favorite son, daughter or wife.

    THIS is my difficulty with ANY "what is your favorite" thread. Fortunately, with 22 handguns, I only have two. One for each hand....:D

    So if you really mean "FUN" to shoot:
    • It's not my Colt Frontier Scout or any of my .22 revolvers
    • It's not my Rugers (MK-III, 22/45, SR22)
    • It's not my Berettas (NEOS, Model 87)
    • It's not my Browning Buckmark
    • It's not my CZ-75B Kadet
    • It's not my S&W 22A

    It's my Bersa Thunder 22 and my Taurus 22-PLY,,,

    They are my "Let's play James Bond" guns.

    If no one is at the range (quite common actually),,,
    I hum the opening Bond theme in my head and walk the line,,,
    Then whirl towards the target and snap one off into the bad guys head.

    Seriously though,,,
    For pure laugh out loud fun,,,
    The smaller guns do the trick for me.

    I have about 30 to choose from that are fun to shoot. And about 15 of them are what I call excellent shooters.
