Aaaaarrrrrrrrrrhhhhhhh... I F***ing hate that piece of advice!!!!
The only thing .22's have over other cals. is cost.
Note to self........... Don't ask this guy for advice about shooting.
"Thinks"..............22's, very accurate, low recoil, inexpensive, allow you to shoot lots and concentrate on sights and trigger squeeze, myriads of competitions to shoot in, huge choice of firearms, huge choice of ammo, no need to buy expensive reloading equipment, no need to learn to use expensive reloading equipment, no need to build a bench for your expensive reloading equipment, no need to build a shed in which to build a bench for your reloading equipment, no need to spend time reloading. Got to stop there, fingers getting tired and have to do some reloading.
What do you mean, you don't reload ????
And Glocks and Sigs for TARGET shooting ? IPSC or IDPA sure, hitting a police silhouette maybe, NRA slow fire bullseye - forget it.
However the question asks for other peoples preferences. Mine depends on what I am doing at the time. My STI Spartan in 45acp is scarily accurate, but I shoot an Edge for IPSC, a Model 10 for work, a Pietta SAA for relaxation, a Browning Challenger for 'stand up on your hind legs and shoot a gun one handed' bullseye stuff.
