I hadn't shot any of the .22 autos other than a Beretta 21A Bobcat when I was younger. At a range last month I tried the Ruger SR-22 on a lark. I was blown away by how crazy fun it is. It was dirty when I rented it, and it ate 250 rounds of crappy brand-x .22 from the range without a hiccup. The safety is kinda lame, but it's a range .22, not a combat gun, so I don't much care about that. Grip was a bit small for me, but I guess it comes with a bigger one. That little gun shot itself onto my short list. Very entertaining for cheap.
