The Browning Buckmarks are a good pistol, as are the somewhat similar Colts... not sure if either is still in production. In my experience (YMMV!) "Friends Don't Let Friend's Buy Taurus" holds some truth in my experience, altho I've never owned one of their .22s Have you considered one of the Ruger "mark"s I-IV? Some what weighty, full-size, and in profile sort of Luger-looking.. I've had two, one an original early MK 1950's production, and a bull-barrel "target" MKI. Both have lasted well over 50 and 40 years respectively, never any problems of any kind, and do everything I need a .22 AUTO to do. Shopping for a used one shouldn't present any lengthy glitches. Ruger's helpful repair dept is another good reason to go Ruger in the unlikely event that anything go wrong.
