Well I think I want to get a .22 handgun in addition to a 9mm or .40s&w. I've been told and have read that the .22 is a good gun to get good practice with and that the ammo is cheap. Anyone have experience with them? I have seen that some are for sport shooting only and have longer barrels. I think I'm more interested in one that is more of a traditional semi-auto or revolver. I picked up a Sig Mosquito yesterday and like it pretty well. Any opinions?
Hey Alex, I have a Mark II and a .22-45, both are semi autos and then you saw the revolver. We can take them to shoot whenever. They are a LOT of fun and very cheap to shoot. The two semis are scoped at the moment but can be removed quickly. I didn't bring them because I figured you would want something more for home defense.
Thanks Chris, Yeah you got me thinking about it that day. I thought it was a good idea to have something cheap to shoot and get some practice with. I still want a 9 or 40 for home defense. Hit me up when you're able to go out to the range again. I'll pick up some ammo the day before.

The only .22 cal handgun I own is a Browning Buckmark. It is by far the gun I am the most accurate with and it is really a great looking firearm. This was the second gun I purchased and with it, I was able to develop the skills necessary to be able to shoot properly. I really enjoy going to the range shooting it without having to be concerned with how much I am spending on ammo. Once the sights are dialed in you can get extraordinary groups each and every time.
