    Nearly everyone who has a "collection" of firearms has a Model 94 and a Ruger 10/22 rifle. The Ruger 10/22 is, of course, a mainstay .22 cal. rifle that is affordable, durable and fairly accurate out of the box. So, I'm wondering if there is a semi-auto .22 cal pistol that falls into that category as well. Thoughts?

    been collecting firearms for over 35 years never owned a model 94 and while I did own a 10-22 I finally found someone to take it off my hands in a trade.


    but to answer your question The Ruger MK series of pistols would fit your wants

    If you're looking for the pistol equivalent of a 10/22, then you're looking for the Ruger Charger.

    Sorry - not a 10/22 pistol, more along the lines of the MkII or MkIII as it turns out so far. Thanks!

    Ruger MK I, II, or III (including the 22/45) and the Browning Buckmark.

    I think eveyone starts out with the Sig Mosquito or similar plinker. They get tired of it and look for something else more reliable.

    The Ruger 22/45 is a nice gun....

    Ruger MK series, but if you want to impress girls and 12 year old boys (I think that sounds wrong!) get a Charger and put a Promag Archangel stock and toys on it. Makes for a fun plinker with 25 or 50 rounds on hand vs 10.

    Impractical, but tons of fun and as reliable as a 10/22 carbine (same components).

    Browning Buckmark! I've been more than happy with mine, amazing trigger, great accuracy, and you're not going to feel like going on a murderous rampage after disassembling the damn thing like the MKII!!!

    I am a big fan of the Ruger Mark I through III versions and the 22/45 which I have also. They just don't break often and are accurate and reliable. Not fun to clean though.
