    I have the M&P 22 Compact. It chews up and spits out everything I have ever fed it. Highly recommend it if you are looking for a modern semi-auto. Also serves as a trainer for the slightly larger M&P 9 or 40 (it is a 15% scaled down version).
    I'm a creep. I'm a weirdo. What the hell am I doing here. I don't belong here.

    MKII's are not easy to find in ID, occasionally one turns up but not that often and finding one in like new condition is rare. Other types and makes are fairly common and relatively easy to find here.

    At one time it was popular to mate a 22/45 polymer lower to a Pac-Lite aluminum upper for an ultra lightweight 22 pistol, back packers seemed to like them.

    I find that the cci mini mags or the blazers are the most reliable in .22lr hand guns! I picked up several thousand rounds over the years when cci were readily available! They sell out quick!

    Any time some one says "Recommend a gun for me," or "What gun should I buy next," or "What is the best 9mm pistol" it is a lot like letting some one else pick out your undies. Ultimately the internet usually recommends the last thing they bought as a kind of self reassurance and actualization.

    The only person that can recommend a gun for you is YOU and YOU are the only one that YOU should be taking recommendations from.

    So here instead is my advice for how you should recommend your next gun - any gun.

    Talk to yourself first. Know why you want the gun in the first place. List out the things you think you will use it for and other important features - some people LOVE having a safety switch, some hate them. This is important to know. To thyne own self be true....

    Read up on the top 10 of what ever category you are looking for. If you have narrowed it down to a specific caliber, even better. Look for matches between the features you are looking for and what the guns have.

    Go to the range and SHOOT them. Rent them there or borrow from a friend or bring the friend. My wife was dead set on the Ruger LCP - Then she shot it.

    Here are some links to get you started:

    Personally I own a High Standard Sport King M and I love it. But they don't make'em any more and when you find one they can be pricey. Seriously, they are like fine whiskey and cigars. If I was rich, collecting High Standards would be a weakness for me; fortunately my economic standing has saved me from that gluttonous hobby. If you get the chance to shoot or own one you should - but not as a survival pistol, as a work of art. So I would NOT recommend that perfectly awesomely wonderful pistol and I don't need to to make myself feel better about owning it. That is all the help I can give you - sorry.

    The only thing that separates man from animal is our affinity for toilet paper.
    Once we as a society lose that affinity we begin to descend back into the animal kingdom, and after three or more days you will find the food chain beginning to invert on itself.

    Can you elaborate on this?
    Mine's literally a button mag release right behind the trigger guard, like every other auto I own.

    I do not recommend a .22 LR for defense...I'm sure I don't have to go into that...there are so many other
    cartridges that do a better job.

    That being said, the .22 LR S&W 41 is hard to beat. It is more accurate than most Rugers. And only
    accurate guns are worth talking about.

    I have other handguns for self-defense, so looking for it to be as versatile as possible in function, small game, plinking and suppressor ready.
