Ruger "Mark" series .22s
I've decided to start looking for a .22 handgun to use as a trail gun/small game/plinker and such. Im mostly a rifle kinda guy so this has been a learning experience for me.
Ive pretty well narrowed it down to the ruger "mark" series. I really like the mark III .22/45, and they can be had new for a little over $300. But before I go buy a new gun, I want to look around at the used stuff and get a general consensus of which of the "mark" series might be the one to look for between the standard automatic (a.k.a. mark I), Mark II, mark III, and any certain variations.
Keep in mind Im not looking for fancy or expensive, just a straight shooting reliable ruger. I dont wanna go much past that $300 mark so I know that takes several of the fancier ones out of the picture, but thats ok.
So, what should I be looking for?
