What's your budget? I am thinking about getting the gp100 .22. looks like a fun shooter. I know you said revolver, but I'm having a blast with my PMR 30.

What is the purpose of this gun?

I like my S&W 43C. Great pocket revolver in .22LR, holds 8 shots, only weighs 12 oz. The 351 is the same gun in .22 magnum and 7 shot.

The 317 is like the DA/SA version of the 43C and has a longer barrel option.

If I wanted a full frame target gun I'd go for the S&W 617 with a 4 or 6 inch barrel.

None of the guns I recommended here are exactly cheap. But personally I think it is worth it to spend more for a gun that has a nice double action trigger. I have a Taurus .17 HMR revolver and it is a tack driver but the DA pull is a little tough.

I did fire an LCR 22 though. It was cheaper and has a pretty nice trigger.

I have a 6" 617. It's an excellent .22 revolver and the trigger is super smooth. Both 4" and 6" are great and are fun and cheap to shoot.

Default LCRx 22LR

I just bought a 3" LCRx in 22lr on Saturday and it's great. Super light, more accurate than me, and very comfortable. The DA trigger's a harder pull than a center fire LCR, but that's to be expected since rimfire requires a harder strike. SA trigger felt nice but I'm no afficianado. I'm very happy with it.

How much was the out the door price?

Ruger's are usually cheaper than their MSRP.

Really depends on what YOU want. I'm a semi auto guy myself, and have a pair of the Walther P-22's in the different barrel lengths. Fun gun! Mag followers can be modified for +2 at no cost. Slickdeals had them for $299 recently.

I just got one of my holy grail guns today actually. Browning Buckmark Coutour lite 5.5 model. Another .22lr, but I also want a PMR-30 in 22mag. Just looking for the right deal.

Out the door after taxes I think the damage was about $500. No background check cost due to my CCW.

Ruger single six with the 9" barrel. You will be the only one at the range with it and you will look like a total bad ass...

I would like to thank everyone for your input. I decided to go with the Heritage Rough Rider. A lot of gun for the price. Really like it as a Magnum.
