well, i limit down to 3 .22 semi pistols. ruger mark III 22/45, beretta neo, and phoenix hp 22(if i can find them). ruger mark III 22/45: i like this pistol i have lots fun with it on rental range, love the sight and feel of grip. though, it is pain in the back to field strip. beretta 22 neo: i like its grip, it fit me the best out of all other 22. easy to field strip, nice mag release (though not left-handed friendly). but i haven't shoot it yet. phoenix hp 22: not thing i can really say about it. it fit ok in my hand. i love its price. the 22 semi that i will NOT consider: buck mark by browning: the grip don't fit my hand at all, my thumb can't reach the mag release without changing my girp. the slide is really tough, and it require tools to field strip. s&w 22a: the grip is not too bad, like the mag release design. a bit too heave for my taste. the real reason i won't consider this gun is because the range i often go had one(lemon), and couldn't get it working well enough to rent, and s&w being really irresponsible about fixing it. they shipped it back 3 time without solving the problem. so i'll stay away from this gun.
