I've had good luck with the Rugers for years. MK I, II, and III. They all just shoot. I don't believe you can wear one out.
I've been tempted to buy a 22/A a couple of times, just for grins and giggles, and because they used to be fairly inexpensive, but just never could get by the (to my eyes) funny look.
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
John 3:16 (NKJV)
