Never shot a .22 pistol before believe it or not. Shot the snot out of my buddies Ruger MK II stainless with a bull barrel today. What a blast to shoot and my kids are deadly with it. On the list!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, those Ruger MK's are a joy to shoot. Little to no recoil, deadly accurate, and very inexpensive ammunition cost. Pretty sweet if you ask me!

I've liked shooting the 22/45. I passed on a stainless MK II the other day - $850.

It did have an older custom Volquartsen barrel, custom trigger and custom target grips on it, though.

Yes, I love mine it is amazing what a good shot I suddenly become with that thing.

Isn't it a great gun? I was gifted a MK II target model from my grandfather about a year ago. I can shoot 3-4 inch groups, rapid fire, from 25 yards and this gun holds to a paper plate at 50 yards easy. LOVE it!

I have four Ruger MK II's, so I guess I like them. The are very over built for a .22 pistol.

I pooh-poohed the caliber for a long time, until I picked up an MKIII a couple of years ago. Like the OP, I have a blast shooting it. It is probably the most fun I have had with any of my guns. "Where have you been all my life?" and "Why did I wait so long?" were among the questions I asked myself.

22 = most fun and most aggravating handgun to shoot.

one day its amazing one day its horrible.

find a good ammo and do not clean the barrel just the action. 22's are lubricated bullets for the lead ones and they condition the barrel. after cleaning the barrel a few fouling shots will recoat the barrel and the shots will tighten up again.

Can't beat the bang for the $'s. I love the MK II's and have found them more reliable than other makes.

This is better but finicky about wanting SV ammo.

Respect for any former caliber hater.

22LR is THE caliber.
