    Not from around here.
    NES is a great place to start. I have owned many .22 caliber pistols over the years. For target shooting any Ruger Mark pistol, a Browning Buckmark or the new S&W Victory pistol would be a good choice, all are solid pistols well suited for target shooting and will last you a lifetime. But If you just want to plink and don't really care too much about the accuracy, then a Ruger SR-22 would be fine. They are lightweight and just fun to shoot. Hope you find what your looking for.

    I read the fawning industry articles touting the Mk IV series' "10 second takedown".

    I can get our MK III 22/45's receiver off the frame in less than 10 seconds,
    without even using a paper clip.

    I dunno, maybe he is sincere but also rather clueless. I'm not sure what Maura hopes to get out of it. It is not as if he asked "hey I want to buy a gun but don't like paperwork... Can someone help me out?"

    Meanwhile, I have my own issue... I want to buy some apples but don't know where to go. Where do you buy apples from?

    You buy the apples from the "Apple Corp Of America" and the used gun from the "Used Gun Corp Of America". Jack.

    NES member 'tuna' is offended by that comment. Or, at least I think he should be so I will get offended on his behalf.

    Please don't relate tuna to Maura. Tuna smells better unless it's gone bad than it's close to Maura. Also I probably won't be able to eat tuna if every time I go to eat it I think of Maura.:eek:

    YoutUbe lets you watch people hammer on their pistols during disassembly,
    and during reassembly.

    Mass? Pfffft. Head North. According to the "Moderator" in the McMahon/Healey debate, you can buy anything you want in N.H., just bring cash.

    Oh, I forgot to add that there are tons of used .22 pistols on the internet.

    No background checks or LTC required.

    Ships right to your door, loaded and ready to shoot.

    It’s a much more complex odor...I smell notes of “Ignore the Constitution in order to be recognized by the DNC” with a strong finish of “more desperate than Hillary for a Federal Appoitment”.

    I decided to take a look at our classifieds for .22 pistols. In the first 5 pages (150 listings by my setting), bringing me back about 1 week, there were (0) .22 pistols available. So maybe the suggestion of "here" isn't the best.

    And yes, I realize you may have bought your first .22 pistol from NES 6 years ago......
    And yes, I realize if I go further back than 1 week, (x amount) become available....
    And yes, I realize now that 2 people bumped their posts for .22 pistols after reading this thread, there are more than zero....
    but I am just pointing out there are not a lot of .22 pistols available for sale on NES

    You'll never be a YoutUbe star with an attitude like that.

    Do you at least refer to coil springs compressed to less than their resting length
    as being "under tension"?
