So. I'm gonna pick up a .22LR match pistol pretty soon. The two primary weapons I'm considering are the Walther P22 with a five-inch barrel, found here, or the Beretta Model 87 Target, found here.
The primary things the Beretta has going for it are improved accuracy and controllability over the P22 (especially over the 3.4" barrel). The primary things the Walther has going for it are price (about 1/3rd that of the Beretta) and styling - the latter of which, most people will tell you, is largely irrelevant, but to me, it's a big deal. This won't be my carry pistol, natch.
So, if you actually know anything about firearms, give a look and tell me what you think. And, if you don't, just have a look and tell me which one strikes your fancy more.
I don't really know anything about real-world weapons, only the computer game ones that I'm always using to blow away pixellized monsters and soldiers. The closest thing to a gun that I ever used was a short bow, I sucked at it too, but I was only about 12 (School archery club... I didn't stay in it very long).
They both look great to me, so going by what little I know, I'd say it really depends on how much you can/will spend on better accuracy. If it's worth that much, go for the Beretta, otherwise you might as well stick with the Walther.
