Those are fine guns for plinking, targets, and general shooting. Nice little fishing or camp guns.
I wouldn't CC one unless it was threaded and had a can, and I was a double-naught agent.

Honestly, I would go with the tactical model that has a rail on top for a small optic, and 4.4" threaded barrel.
With CCI stingers it would be a mean little shooter.

A can would up the cool factor, but would take some 'splainin if you ventillated a car jacker with the whisper of death.

...you getting rid of the RAMI Shootinit???
If I had to carry one of those Rugers I'd go with the one just before the longest. That one seems like a compromise where it'd maintain accuracy and be in the compact realm?

...oh, I'd forget the suppressor and keep it 100% stock. Don't get me wrong that would be a fun toy but a jury of your peers might not see it that way :-)

If I was going to cc a .22 handgun it would be something like a Beretta Bobcat. That said, if it was for open carry camping/hiking I might choose a Ruger 22/45 Lite, but not the Target series pictured in the OP because they're unnecessarily heavy for that.

I also prefer my Ruger barrels short and threaded. Shooting off the back deck neither the wife nor squirrels are aware.

I actually do CC a .22wmr NAA mini revolver, but it is accompanied by a full sized handgun in a substantial caliber.

That Ruger will absolutely work, but If I'm carrying a gun that big. and heavy, it'll be stouter than .22lr.

Right. Choosing a small caliber to carry requires a criteria or incentive to do so. I mean... I don't carry a .380 for sake of caliber but because it comes with a small and light 9oz LCP wrapped around it for pocket carry. On the other hand, if I was handicapped or could only physically withstand minimal recoil I might choose something like the OP. Without known the OP's criteria, all ya can do is reply with your own which may be irrelevant to the OP.

That said, maybe it's time we ask. Hey Shootinit, WTF do you want to conceal carry a full size frame rimfire 2lb boat anchor?
