The last .22lr pistol I bought was the GSG 1911 and it's sweet!
That said, if I were looking for a .22lr pistol (non 1911 platform) I would pick-up a M&P 22 no questions asked. I have rented these at the range along with the Ruger SR22 and I like them both but tend to prefer the M&P design as the Ruger reminds me so much of the Walther P22. In fact, when I saw Ruger's SR22 @Shotshow I was originally disappointed as I thought they essentially copied to some degree the P222--I have since discovered they are quite different in almost every aspect absent appearence).
Thumbs up on the M&P!
