    Default .22 pistol

    I am looking at buying a .22 pistol for small stuff; spruce hen, ptarmigan, hairs. I just need something small because I've been doing most of my travel on MT bike and its tough on the rifle when the bike slips out and I end up sprawled out on the Ice. Hoping to get some suggestions for an accurate durable .22 pistol that operates well in the cold.

    I love my S&W 617! Accurate, easy to shoot, and very durable.

    Thumbs up Mark III

    I just bought a new a Mark III ruger Hunter ( 6 7/8 inch fluted barrel) .22 and I love it. Accurate, reliable, fits my hand just right and did I mention, accurate? Can't go wrong with this gun.

    Diamond D leather has a shoulder holster that is just right also, that would make a nice combination.

    Thanks for the input. I've been looking at the ruger Mark II, III and also the browning buck marks... No gun boot on the bike just a shoulder strap. A barrel to the back of the head never feels good.

    Default steel vs skull

    yeah that never feels good....one of my rifles doesn't fit into a gunboot so it gets shouldered on the snow machine.....i normally dont wear a helmet...but i think there is a permanent dent in the back of my skull from it rubberbanding off a branch and into my cranium...those mark IIIs are nice

    I could slide you into a S&W Model 17 for $599.00 about 1/2 of new price. It has 8 3/8" Barrel.

    I've got one of the Browning .22 pistols. I have abused that thing something awful, and it has never let me down. Very dependable, more accurate than me, and plenty packable and affordable.

    I second the Buckmark. I liked it lots better than my Ruger. Much better trigger and very accurate.

    Default I'd suggest the Ruger convertable

    22lr/22mag ,using a chest pack.
    Mine has served me very well through the years ,and being a wheel gun extreemly versatle.
    Because I lived in the desert for a while I always chambered the first two rounds of snake shot, which came in handy a lot.If you have the moment , it is always easy to rotate the cytlinder to regular ammo ,or pop the pin and swap cylinder preloaded with mags.
    I have the semi auto as well but I like the advantage of versatility over the clip. If you are making your shots count and don't rely on peppering the target area, to get it , the convertable is my choice.

    Default Buck mark then

    Ya the trigger is a big deal to me, if I can get a lighter pull on a NIB buck mark Ill go with that. I know there durable, one of my buddies has one that he has trashed. Its taped togather but still shoots strait and cycles well.

    S&W Target Master has a perfect trigger........
