    I came across this article while looking for .22 accessories. I suspect this gentleman needs to get out and gain more experience before posting the best .22 pistols for 2019. In my opinion, the Buckmark and S&W 17 have a place here, but not the others. For Giggles, what do you thing should have been on this list?

    I personally was surprised not to see any of the Ruger Mk series, especially none of the .22/45 Lite series.

    Wow - I agree, the writer, obviously hasn't spent any time with his choices. Oh sure for a kid fun plinker - give em a $1000 SW 17 with a long barrel. Oh and he just had to mention the Mosquito, geez what a knucklehead.

    A Sig 1911-22 being the best 22 for self defense? Best for the bad guy's safety is what I believe the author meant.

    Of all my 22s, and I have a safe full of them, the GSG 1911 needed the most work to become reliable. A Sig is nothing more than a rebranded GSG.

    I have to agree about the Buck Mark though. Also, what's up with Cabela's coming up when you click on the "check price" button? Show me any Cabela's sale price and I guarantee I can find it at least 20% less somewhere else.

    I have a Buckmark and personally I like my Ruger MKIV better. I like my Walther P22 and it's been dependable, but it's a plinker and nowhere near the accuracy of the Ruger. I can't speak on the others, but I will say my favorite .22 handgun of all time was a 4" Colt Diamondback.

    Heh. Yeah, I own an ATI GSG/SIG 1911-22 and while I really enjoy it for plinking and running the 1911 platform, I would NEVER consider it for CCW. Not enough caliber to be considered for self defense (IMHO) and a bit too big for me for concealment. Great gun but certainly not for SD or even the best 1911-22 for that matter. Excellent value for the money but there are better and higher quality (yet more costly) 1911-22's out there.

    S&W SW22 Victory should be there as well as the Ruger Single Six.

    ...and no PT22 or TX22 either!

    Seriously, though, I like the looks of that Sig 1911-22. I've seen several of those 1911 style 22's, but one thing I don't understand is the small capacity. To me, one reason to have a full size .22 is to have a couple dozen rounds. If I can buy a compact .45 (PT24/7 G2C) that has a 10 round magazine, why can't they fit a 20 round magazine (or more) in to a 1911 frame? If I recall, the TX22 has a 17 round magazine. To me, that should be an advantage of these big frame .22's but it doesn't seem to be the case.

    This person has some clue to what he is doing with the SR22, but otherwise gets lost in an outhouse without GPS otherwise.
    Here are my choices, as they are:

    Best Value .22: Heritage Rough Rider .22LR/.22WMR convertible. For less than $200 in most places, you get a great plinker with the added benefit of .22WMR when you want to take care of a varmit or two. This one was SO easy to pick.

    Best .22: Good Lord, I have has so many that could take this title, and yet one or the other would be just as good as each other. If you ever shot a Dan Wesson .22, I would consider this the top rung of the ladder. Otherwise Ruger single action .22s are great, the Heritage Rough Rider is fine, and the old S&W K-22 and it later model replacements are okay.

    And yes, in .22LR/.22WMR, I prefer a revolver to a semi-auto.

    Electing Joe Biden as President will be similar to going bear hunting at night with just a pair of chop sticks and a lit candle. You know it is a bad idea from the outset, you can not defend yourself, you are ill prepared for what can and maybe will happen, and you question why you even thought it would be a good idea in the first place.

    I love his statement:

    "It is true, undoubtedly, that getting hit by a .22 round is unlikely to kill anyone."

    Undoubtedly? Really? So you wouldn't mind getting shot with a .22?
    How about getting stabbed with an icepick; isn't that about the same?
