"Cheap" Plinking Handguns
« on: October 30, 2008, 07:42:47 PM »
Okay, so it's been about 3 weeks since I bought my AR and I think it's about time to get something new. :D
I just wanted something that I'd be able to put 300 rounds through and not miss the change spent for the ammo.

I've been leaning heavily towards the Walther P22 mainly because I think it's the best looking .22 pistol and it's reasonably priced.

In a close second is the Sig Mosquito.  I don't think it looks quite as nice as the P22 but it does tend to run a bit cheaper.

Honestly, I have zero experience with handguns so I was wondering what y'all thought...Opinions?  Experiences?  Suggestions?  I would greatly appreciate it. :D

I think they both are good and if you have a LR you can use the same ammo for them but I would probably go with the Sig Mosquito cause you can thread a silencer on to it for more fun at home.

Well I think the P22 has a threaded barrel too, if I'm not mistaken.

Avoid the Sig. I love the Sigs but the Mosquito doesn't seem to follow their level of standards very well. I've been reading about how they have a simple 1yr limited warranty whereas the full fledged Sigs have a lifetime warranty. Also been hearing about failure to fire numbers and in the end, I'd recommend an older buckmark or mark 2. I love my Mark 2 and it'll eat anything but the Winchester Golds. O0

It don't come with one so its probably an extra you have to buy for the change out barrels.

You can get nice threaded barrels for the Mark 2 as well. O0

I had the same thing on my mind.I want a .22 and or a 9mm for cheaper shooting.The fellow I bought my Taurus HMR revolver from was selling a Walther P22.It had the silencer and a laser.

I really like revolvers after buying the HMR revolver.Plus Tuarus has a lifetime warrenty.The Taurus 94 is a choice.I see them priced around $300.


But I would really like to have "ol'reliable"  O0 O0

What Ks_Sniper is referring to when he says Mark 2 is a Ruger. :roll:  They're really good guns and dang near indestructible! O0

As for the Walther and the Sig, I would go with the Walther.  I've shot one and they're neat little guns, not to mention you can get all kinds of little goodies to add on to them. O0

Better get it now before Hussain get's elected. >:(

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

Tech, when i saw that picture of the .17 pistol a while back, i thought it'd run about 800 bucks. Now i gotta get one.

Walther p22 is a good choice. They look cool too.


Get this though

Thanks for the suggestions and comments!  Actually I didn't even get to read any of your replies before I made my choice because I went right to the store after work on Friday.  I couldn't wait!
But I ended up going with the P22.  Love that little thing so much.  I've only got the chance to put 11 rounds through it but it was a very enjoyable 11 rounds! :D
I'm probably gonna go to the range after work tomorrow and put a few hundred through it. O0

I've heard a lot of good things about the ruger 22/45 but I just wasn't into how it looks for some reason.  Also I was searching the web and came across this:  P22 vs 22/45 Heavyweight Title Bout!
Good read if ya got some time to kill. (Hope you Don't mind me posting a link to another site)
