Next Purchase Dilemma

I have a problem and I hope you guys can help me out. I'm in the market for a new semi auto for plinking but I have a few requirements.

1. Around $400. I could maybe swing $500, but I'd rather go $400 or below.

2. Cheap ammo. It's for paper and steel and maybe the occasional varmint, and I plan on shooting it a lot. I have a 10mm that I love, but it's expensive to shoot. I assume that means I'm looking at a .22 or 9mm, but I'm open to suggestions.

3. This is the big one. I have to buy it at Bass Pro Shops. I've got $400 in gift cards so I'm pretty much stuck with what they have.

So far I'm tossing these around in my head.
Baretta Neos
Browning Buckmark
Ruger MkIII
Walther P22
Ruger P95
S&W Sigma SW9VE

They won't have the Ruger SR22 for at least 6 months otherwise I'd likely get that.

I want something that's just plain fun to shoot.

Those.

You can get a kit to turn the Neos into a carbine and back, just make sure you put the long barrel on first and off last.

I'd order a SR22 online and have it shipped to your FFL. Seems like a really nice gun. I have a Walther P22 and while mine's been pretty good, I'd get a Ruger SR22.

Love my Neos! More accurate than me, easy to care for, the aforementioned carbine kit, enough mass that it doesn't move when you pull the trigger, ...

Get the base model and spend the rest on bulk ammo - you're going to need it!

I'd like to get a revolver thread going. Maybe I'll start one in the next few days.....unless someone else beats me to it!! Feel free, I'll not be offended!

Sigmas are shit-tier guns. P-Series Ruger would be much better. I've owned both. And I loathe Ruger.

For a .22 I think the Buckmark or MkIII would be the best.

Nice VZ grips. I'm torn between a pair of VZs or some grips from Angus Hobdell's shop in Mesa. I'm planning on going there over spring break.

+1 on the neos. Put a $50-100 red dot on the top and its too easy to shoot.


Can you buy used with your gift cards? Their used guns are no bargain but they have decent stuff from time to time

I've seen the Sigmas cropping up for $239 used at gun shows. At that price, its a solid deal. Not a great gun (i have one) but light years ahead of a Hi Point which would be the only cheaper gun.

Buy 2 or 3 and sprinkle them around the cars and house

My 40VE died after 800 rounds of factory ammo and has possibly the worst trigger ever installed on a semi-auto.

$239 used? A CZ-82 is a thousand times better gun. 9x18 is just a hair less powerful than 9mm Para.

$280 will buy a used S&W Model 64 around here too.

btw

just picked up a very lightly used glock 20 10mm with 4x magazines, nice novak style tritium sights, and the lasermax guide rod. Got it for a steal and could not pass it up at the price they were selling it for......I have to quit stumbling on guns at great prices. Between my remington 1100, mosin carbine, and glock it has re-affirmed my faith that used guns can be had for great deals

Took it to the attached range and had a great time shooting it. The laser worked so so but made it extremely easy to shoot. Night sights still work which is awesome. It was even fun to shoot without the full power loads

If you'd like to try out the P22, let me know......I happen to have one down in the gun safe.
