    S+W model 41 is a good choice.

    Semi-auto or Revolver? I have a Ruger Single Six in S/S. It has two cylinders, one 22 and the other 22 Mag. I also have a S&W Model 622 Semi-Auto target in 22LR. Dave T.

    For an entry level target pistol, you may want to check out a Ruger Mk. I, II or III 5 1/2" bull barrel target model. This model has an adjustable rear sight and is a joy to use. It is, however, difficult to clean unless you follow their directions to a “T”. The Ruger bull barrel's shoot well and the US Government uses them in their pistol training programs. Ruger even offers a "Government" model bull barrel pistol.


    Ruger makes a Single Six with 22LR and 22 Magnum cylinders that has adjustable sights that is not bad for plinking or informal target shooting. To my knowledge, the .22 Magnum is not usually used for competitive target shooting.

    There are many other excellent target pistols out there.


    I recently got to hold a S&W K 22 Masterpiece target revolver with walnut target grips and about an 8" barrel. A deceased trap shooter I knew used to shoot .22 targets competitively in Philadelphia and had several trophies. That was a sweet target revolver.


    I once got to shoot a Colt Woodsman Target model that was sweet. It had two barrels, one about 5" and the other about 6 1/2". The owner told me that the Woodsman Target pistols were assembled by a limited number of craftsmen using selected parts and were all hand fitted.


    Browning also used to make a high end target pistol called the Medalist that came in a wood case and was very nice. I think that they offer an entry level model today called a Buck Mark.


    Hi Standard made some excellent .22 target models back in the 1960’s that were used in the Olympics. I wish I had bought one instead of wasting money on girls.


    We get old too soon and wise too late.

    Walther GSP - one of the best target guns made. I have one and love it.

    You can add a .32 S&W barrel to shoot NRA CF.

    If you want something "less". My next favorite is a High Standard with 5.5" bull barrel.

    Next is a Ruger Target grade gun - best value out there IMHO and lots of aftermarket add-ons to improve if/when you want to.

    Revolvers are not "target guns" but I own a few and love to plink with them.

    I have a Hi Standard "Sharpshooter" Target pistol with the 5 1/2" Bull Bbl and
    walnut thumb rest factory target grips with beautiful checkering. It is in 98% condition. It also comes with an extra target bbl---a 6" tapered bbl with the
    target weight on the very end.
