They say that every gunner should have a .22 for plinking and practice. I heartily agree.
My 22 trek began with a Sig Mosquito, that didn't have a long stay in the safe. On the first day out, it constantly jammed and FTE'd. I flirted with a Walther P22, but never found one that spoke to me. I found a Browning Buckmark that I liked in the store, it just didn't fit my hands right at the range..
I purchased a single action 357, and loved the way a revolver shot, I ended up trading the Buckmark for a Ruger Single Six. I have to say that the single six shot beautifully. There was absolutely nothing wrong with it, except loading and reloading a single action 22 is a real pain in the neck.
