I shoot a HS Victor in Bullseye, its set up only to load 5 rounds at a time so I decided to get another Semi for 22 action type shooting.
Just last week I picked up a Ruger MKIII 22/45. Since then I've shot over 500 rounds, including a RF Bowling Pin shoot and a Post shoot.
A post shoot is where you shoot at a up right 2X4 and see who cuts it in half first.
I didn't get any malfunctions, but the more I shoot it the more it seems to smoothen out.
I will admit I had a few duds but that was the ammo not the gun.
Before I picked the Ruger I asked around, seems the Ruger is well know for its reliability.
Besides reliability I want accuracy, I've found both in my Ruger MkIII 22/45.
Also put red dot sights on it. I know that's cheating but its fast on target and supper accurate.
No.........I can't agree that 22 semis are not reliable. If you think so, pick up a Ruger.
