I think you will be happy with either one. I have had both and if I was going to buy another one, which I will since they are both gone, it will be the Ruger.

Didnít see the Ruger 22/45. Donít have experience with that one

Without a lot of experience with any of those, Iíd go with the Mk. IV, just because of that lines legacy. Never really heard anything bad about them.

My 22/45 was more accurate than my MKIII. Theyíre all good though.

Iíve been a Ruger fanboy for a lot of years. I have a 22/45 target that shoots lights out. Having said that, the SW22 is a sweet pistol. It would be high on my list. Honestly do not think you could go wrong with any you mention.

Iíve been reading about the SW22 Victory. Supposedly a better trigger and it has fiber optic sights.

How does it work to buy a gun online and have it shipped to a gun shop nearby? Iíve never done that. Just always bought from academy. Whatís the cost to do this?

Thereís some good deals on these guns out there.

Donít have any experience with the S&W. Iíve owned exactly one Ruger - a 22/45,and currently have a Buck Mark. Got rid of the Ruger. To me the Buck Mark had a better trigger and was more accurate.

I have ordered a number of guns from Buds. They ship to an FFL you choose to do the paperwork. I have a guy here in town that will do it for $20. Buds also ships free a lot of the time.

You want a gun that's easy to take down. So that would be a Ruger Mk IV or SW Victory.
I have the SW22 Victory. It's accurate and reliable. It's a very nice pistol. Do some reading on it.

I have a Ruger MKIII Hunter and it is accurate and very dependable. The new MKiV breaks down much easier than the MKIII.

Also take a look at the S&W M&P 22.

It is a lot of fun and similar ergos to a M&P9 2.0 Compact or comparable Glock, if you carry either of those. I also have an earlier version of the Ruger. While very nice, it never goes to the range since the M&P showed up.

We have the Ruger MKIV, S&W MP22, and Sig Skeeter. Of the 3 I love the MP22, great feel & Trigger, non existing recoil. The Ruger is good but heavy. The Sig sucks.

I am a fan of the Buck Mark but also think I would really like the grip angle of the 22/45. It is next on my list to try.
