Steel challenge pistol upgrades

I have been thinking about getting a 22 for steel. Which one is a good starter pistol?
I'd suggest that if you have any "speed-steel" events near your area, that you visit a couple, if only to see what the top contenders are using for a base pistol and then, if they have any gizmo's bolted onto their rig.
That will give you a more finite idea from what those folks learned.

The majority of pistols I see in all of the steel challenge matches are Ruger Mark III to Mark IV. Most with dots, some with muzzle brakes.

Just about every town up here has a gun club of their own. For those that do hold steel challenge shoots, one can observe just about any brand of semi-auto .22 Long Rifle pistol that's ever been offered.
Many of these folks who "shoot what they brung" do right well at the job at hand. Distances are not that far, and I sometimes wonder if sights are even needed.

We see lots of different brands at our gun club, mostly among the new players. Some old colt woodsman models, and others. If they get seriously it's Ruger and sometimes buckmarks.
