A friend of mine is in the market for an inexpensive .22 plinker-grade handgun to learn marksmanship and enjoy backyard casual target practice. It should be cheap-- $120 -$200 price range. Looks don't matter. A bit of rust or a few scratches would be fine. It needs to have decent sights-- so that would eliminate most single-action guns (cowboy style) that have a microscopic slit cut in the frame, or hammer, for a rear sight. But normal-sized fixed sights would be OK. If this gun can shoot a baseball-sized group at 30 feet, it will fill the role it needs to fill. Right now the only handgun in my friend's family is a full sized .38 police style DA revolver, and as you know, .38 ammo isn't cheap these days! Retail price the local gun store is nearly 50 cents a shot for FMJ or RNL range ammo. (I know you can get it for half that, if you buy a case of 500 or 1000 mail-order). Anyhow, a .22 revolver or semi-auto would fit the bill nicely for practice in the backyard range. Does anybody have anything they don't use anymore? If you see something cheap at a pawn shop that fits the bill, let me know. ***************** FOUND A NICE 6" Beretta Neos from a member here. Thanks!
