I also used it to teach my kids gun safety and how to shoot handguns.

    I enjoyed shooting that pistol. I'd call it a "poor man's Model 41."

    I don't ever own Taurus pistols, except I did make an exception for this little .22 LR plinker I found at a gunshow in 2014. It's a 9 shot, Stainless Taurus (model 94SS4) revolver, with wood grips, made in 1994. It's in great shape. I like to use CCI snake shot with it. I think I paid about $180 for it at the gunshow.

    A 9mm may expand but a .45 doesn't shrink!

    I'm right there with ya! Only one Taurus, and it's a .22 revolver. The Model 94 with a 5" barrel.



    I'm thinking Woodsy is looking for a semi-auto. My .22 plinker is the S&W Model 43C.

    Hmmm, my M&P 22 has 12 round magazines. Same size as the M&P 9, hammer not striker fired. My wife learned how to shoot with this, and reload magazines. Very reliable for us but is prolly a bit pricier than some of the others mentioned here. Very fun gun to shoot. Runs CCI and Remington Gold Bullet with no problems.

    I know. But the title just mentioned plinker and my old revo holds 9. Not great for rapid fire, but it's been quite reliable and fun. Tough to beat $180 also...

    Browning Buckmark. Cheap, accurate, reliable and durable. Good for thousands of hiccup free rounds.

    Ruger MKIV. Cheap, accurate, reliable and durable. But, be certain to purchase the MKIV. The MKI, II and III's are a genuine PITA to dis and re-assemble.

    GSG 1911-22. I have one with several thousand, trouble free rounds through it but, unless you really like the idea of a model 1911A1 to shoot .22 caliber I'd buy the Buckmark or Ruger MKIV because they're way more accurate (and fun).

    That's why I use a revolver for a plinker. Eventually I should be able to rapid fire.

    Oh yeah! My S&W Model 41 is my favorite .22 caliber semi auto. But, I didn't recommend it because the OP mentioned "reasonable price" as a factor.

    I have a Ruger SR 22 P that is the least fussy .22 pistol I’ve ever owned! It loads and fires any brand of .22LR ammo that I’ve found so far. It can also be dry fired safety; Ruger says so in the manual.

    As much as I hate to say it; the newer Taurus .22 auto pistol has gotten glowing reviews.

    The S&W Victory or M22A I have both and both are easy to clean.
