Looking to get a 22 pistol to carry on the lease for snakes and just general plinking. Looking for recommendations. The Smith & Wesson SW22 Victory caught my eye and Iím going to hold one tonight, but was curious if there were any others to consider while Iím there. Also curious if anyone here has one and if they like it or not. Thanks in advance!

The Ruger Single Six is hard to beat.

The M&P 22 is very nice, and also makes a nice practice pistol for something that feels and operates like a typically EDC pistol. It needs to be cleaned about every 500 rounds or so for reliable operation.

Having said that, for snakes, carry a 9 or 45 with the CCI shotshells. Way easier to make a good hit in a hurry.

I'm partial to S&W revolvers. 8 rounds in the cylinder is handy and they are fun to shoot.

Seems silly that a Buckmark or MKIII/IV aren't at the top of the list. Highly accurate, reliable, easily modified for RMRs/Suppessors/etc, and more rounds than a revolver.

Haven't handled the Ruger Mark IV, but I have owned the Is and IIs. The III has features I don't care for. I can sure recommend the Mark II. You should be able to pick one up used at a reasonable price. I prefer the 5.5 inch bull barrel models.

The SW22 Victory Iím looking at is a similar gun to the Buckmark and Mark IV, just a cheaper price as it is on sale for $299 at Academy. Iím going to look at all 3 of those while Iím there for sure. Thanks for all the suggestions everyone!

Auto, browning buck mark and the ruger mark iv are as good as it gets. Revolver a little single six is a awesome little pea shooter.

I don't own one, but a older fella had a Ruger SR22 at the range a while back and let me shoot it. It felt great and he highly praised it. I'd buy one.

It is one of those firearms every American needs to own.

I have one with .22lr and .22 Mag cylinders.

I do want a Ruger MK IV, but that doesnt mean I'm getting rid of my Single Six.

Call me crazy but I kinda like the Heritage .22 revolver I have. I have other more expensive models but there is something about the SA six shooter.

The single six with both cylinders is pretty much perfection in my eyes. I also have a P22 & 22/45. The 22/45 is a great trainer. The P22 is fun to carry and puts down the occasional animal.

Heritage and Ruger single 6 with .22mag and .22 lr cylinders are both great guns. I'd do one of the ruger models if you HAD to have a semiauto.
