I'm considering getting a new .22 pistol. It would be mostly used for plinking, throwing it in a backpack on a long hike, and keeping it in a survival bag on the boat.
My question is this: Auto (Ruger Mk II) vs. Revolver (some kind of Smith)???
I've read that some people have put around 10,000 rounds through their .22 pistol, which I think is definately achievable with a .22. So, which one would hold up better in the long-run...an auto or a revolver? I know that revolvers tend to be more "reliable" (less moving parts), but people don't usually put that many rounds (thousands) through their revolver. I want whatever will last the longhaul.
Thanks for all of your advice and personal experience!
