I suggest the ruger mark II pistols they are durable reliable and as long as you keep them clean they never jam. The mark 2's are fairly cheap too I personally like the bull barrel or target barrel with both have adjustable sights. The S&W .22's aren't too cheap! they are a bit more than the rugers but thier auto's are not reliable at all. I had one and it jammed every other clip! I personally hate the S&W auto's but their revolvers are great. Reliable and heavy duty. Hope any of this helps.
