Hi Everyone,

Just getting into the scene and looking for my first gun thats all my own.

I currently shoot a variety of guns but they all belong to my friends.

I am looking to get a 10/22 simular to my friends and another 9mm that I am able to install a 22 kit on it (shooting 9mm as often as I go to the range has become quite expensive)

Welcome to Calguns.net!

You can't go wrong with a Ruger 10/22. Fun, fun, FUN!!! :)

As for a 9mm and 22LR conversion:
- Sig Sauer P226 with a Sig Sauer 22LR Conversion
- Glock 19 (compact) or 17 (full size) with an Advantage Arms 22LR Conversion
- Beretta 92F with an original Beretta conversion or a Ciener 22LR Conversion

Ciener, www.22lrconversion.com (http://22lrconversion.com/), makes a 22LR conversion for quite a few different pistols.

A 22LR conversion will cost from $200-$300 extra.

You'd have to tell us what firearms you've shot before. You mentioned you've shot your friends' pistols, so start from there. Which one fit your hands the best, which one were you the most comfortable shooting, and which one were you the most accurate with?

I am in Orange county most of the time.

Although I grew up in and my family still live in San Diego county.

I also own a home in Houston, Texas I am at every chance I get.

Well you will have to forgive me for not knowing the model #'s

But my friend she has a Beretta 9mm and a 40mm (was her husbands who passed away) so I have shot them both. I don't like the stock sights on them as I find it hard to aim. We both have difficulty loading the clips as the springs seem so tight. I heard they have something called a speed loader we can use to save out thumbs.

My other friend has a Sig 45 which I love shooting it has less of a recoil then the Beretta 40 (but I have gotten use to it) the draw back is the click only holds 7 and I hate stopping to reload :D I love the sights he has on his but I am not sure what type they are I will have to ask but he is out of the country right now.

Right now I have my other friends Browning 9mm. The look of the sights through me off at first but after taking it to the range I really like it and find it easy to aim and be pretty accurate. I believe it has a high cap mag on it as he bought it in WA state. That is also a plus as I previously mentioned I hate stopping to re load.

The same friend has a ruger 10/22 is I believe the tactical version. He said it has a heavier barrel on it then the standard ones. It has those bi pod things on the bottom and a pretty nice scope. Also since he bought it in WA state I believe (former military) it has a 50 round clip which I LOVE since I can shoot my heart out before having to stop and reload!

I was very accurate with that gun but then again he said he spent $1000 on customizing it. I think I can do something similar but not spending all the money on the high end stuff he did (he told me he spent more then $100 on the rings to hold the scope on alone)



BTW thanks for the info on the 22lr conversion kits that will come in handy!


My friend wants to sell her husbands 40 and so I might end up buying that.

Do they have 40 to 22 conversions?

Of course! :)

The slide on the Beretta comes off and is replaced with the 22LR Slide and a different barrel. A different magazine is used, too. The only thing that is kept on the Beretta 40S&W is the frame. Very simple.
Ciener (http://22lrconversion.com/ber-pg.htm)makes one and Beretta (http://www.asotactical.com/product_info.php?products_id=1044)makes one. Every once in awhile, someone on this forum will sell theirs on the Marketplace (http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/forumdisplay.php?f=93)forum.

I have a 22LR on a couple of my pistols. Much cheaper to shoot and a lot of fun! Note: the 22LR conversions can be finicky about the type of 22LR that it shoots. Most recommend CCI Mini Mag. Cost a little more than the bulk 22LR but still cheaper ($6-8.00 for 100 rounds) than shooting .40 S&W ($15/box of 50 rounds). You'll need to test it out.

Loading magazines is a big pain (in the thumb). There's a product out there called an Uplula. Here's a link (http://www.midwayusa.com/eproductpage.exe/showproduct?saleitemid=952670#enalarge). Shop around or visit your local gunshop to see if they have one and try it out.
