Glad you clarifed CFO aproval so we know you're not a poser. :)

You can't go wrong with a Ruger Mark. I suggest a 5.5 bull barrel as an all around pistol. It's short enough to carry easily for plinking and the heavy barrel is good for the range.

Remember the hunt is half the fun so look at a lot of pistols before you buy. Once you buy you have no more excuses to look without making the CFO uneasy.

I like my bull barrel (that's the Target Model) just fine.

If an SA revolver is a possibility, check out Bearcats. Small, light, lots of fun. Fixed sights, though.

You said pistol, so I figure you aren't looking for a revolver...too bad,

since at the top of my suggestion list would be

1. Taurus 990 9 shot DA SS 4" barrel Revolver

Then come the two pistols.
2. Ruger Mark III target barrel
3. S & W 22A

I like shooting the S&W better than the Ruger only due to my shaky hands and the weight difference in the two...Ruger is much heavier... Both do the job.

If someone says we going to shoot spinners from the back porch/deck, I reach for the revolver.

If you are looking for a semi-auto pistol, probably a Ruger Mark II or Mark III would make you happy. I have a vintage Mark I

If you like revolvers, perhaps a Ruger Single Six or Single Ten, they are single action only... I have the Single Ten.

Another revolver option, one I have been thinking about, is the double action SP101 in 22LR. It holds 8 shots.

Very recently, I bought a 22/45, and it worked great, but had I known beforehand what a pain they are to field strip, I'd have left it alone! No disrespect intended to you 22/45 fans intended; that's just me. Anyhow, I got rid of it, and bought a S&W M&P .22 to replace it. Love it, no problems. If you like SA revolvers, I also can highly recommend the Ruger Single Six.

One issue is weight, my wife can't hold heavier guns up for too long. We were considering the 22/45 lite
Of course, this can be a bit subjective, but I find the polymer-framed M&P .22 I mentioned to be very lightweight. Give it a look.:)

I see you have a Firestorm 380. I would suggest a Bersa Thunder 22. before anyone balks at my suggestion, I own several nice 22 semi autos. Browning Buckmark, Beretta 70s in 22, Ruger Mk II bull barrel. All very good firearms, but I just bought a Bersa Thunder 22 on a whim last month. It is a well made, fine shooting gun. I fed it CCI mini mags and Remington Bulk Golden ammo. No issues at all. They are relatively inexpensive to buy. Got mine for $283 delivered to my dealer from Impactguns.com
Highly recommend giving it a look, you wont be sorry you dis.
JMHO,
TJ
