Hello everyone! I'm new to this site, but not new to weapons. I spent a few years in the military (infantry) so between that and being raised in the country I've fired my fair share. I haven't fired anything in a several years until yesterday when I went out with my oldest son to fire his new Taurus .45. We had a blast, so now I'm becoming reaquainted with firearms. I have a Ruger .357 Blackhawk, a Jennings .380 semi auto, and an old .22 single action revolver. I got to fire an S & W .22 revolver yesterday and really liked it, so I'm thinking about looking into getting one or something comparable for target practice. Are there any other suggestions of something that I may need to be on the lookout for? I really don't want to spend $500 on one, but I also don't want to buy a piece of junk either. Can someone make some suggestions! Thanks in advance, and I look forward to seeing everyone on this forum!

Welcome to PistolWorld!

When it comes to .22 revolvers, I really like the S&W mod. 17.

As far as your price, well, you can do it, but it will take alot of looking and luck.

All firearm prices are thru the roof at this time.

welcome.

youre limiting yourself with the 500. you MAY be able to find one out there, but i doubt it.

If youre open to USED, then that will open up alot of other possibilities. If you have a fav gun shop go shop there and let them know what youre looking for.

i would say to look for a 617 but they are in the 500> range. i got mine several years ago and they were right in that area. the used ones were not much less either.

You could really find a used M17/K22 for < 500 if you look. there are other S&W revolvers that are < 500 USED too.

Colt has some Trooper MK III, but they will be USED for your price.

Hey, used doesn't hurt my feelings one bit! I was thinking that to get a "quality" pistol I'd have to go used, so that's OK. Almost every gun that I have was used when I got it.

I was looking around the internet and came up on a site that was selling a pistol brand called Hi-Point. Has anyone heard of those? The pricing was right, but I want to make sure that I get decent quality also. I'll probably still look around for a good used name brand, but was just wondering about these.

High point's supposedly aren't real sturdy or particularly reliable. I don't own one, although I've definitely though about buying one in .45 ACP. Like you said, the price is right, but I suspect the quality is not. I'm waiting on either a Colt 1991 Commander or a Glock 21.
