    One of the best bang for the buck is the Ruger Mark II and III I think they're kinda ugly myself however they are the gun that most others are compared to.
    My personal favourite is the S&W model 41 but it's very pricey.

    I see a High Standard on E.E. for 200 bucks. Best .22 semi's going, IMO

    The High Standards are wonderful guns - the better quality ones are extremely accurate and are often used in bullseye matches. Don't worry about buying extremely old High Standards - you can still get factory parts for most pistols! Two caveats: they are very much designed to work best with CCI standard velocity so if you can't get that near you, I would look into other guns. Also, they cannot handle high velocity rounds. When purchasing, make sure the frame is not cracked near the slide release because that is where the damage from HV rounds shows up.

    Happy shooting.

    I just picked up a Smith and Wesson .22a1 sport and find it quite fun for economical plinking!
    i have no intention of dying, in fact, it will be the last thing i do

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    you are absolutely spot on, that's why you posted twice the same...

    I have a Browning Nomad, very slim and very accurate, I think is was manufactured in the 60's. Actually it's my wife's gun, it fits small hands perfectly.
    My second 22 is a High Standard military match , made in Hamden. Great quality and outstanding accuracy (1 inch 5 shot groups at 25 meters), but not that reliable.
    Now my all time favourite is my Stainless Ruger Mark II, with 5.5 inch bull barrel. While not as accurate as the High Standard, is very reliable with any ammo, and it is accurate enough.
    BTW, I own this Ruger since 25 years, and it still looks and performs like new.
