I enjoy shooting .22 any handgun either revolver or semi-auto. I dont know why but they are just a blast.

Little .22LR pocket pistols. I love to plink around with my little Jennings J-22 Zamak wonder pistol.

I got a call the other day from a company called "Jiminez Arms". There pistols look exactly like those jennings and are dirt cheap. It must be the same company or someone who bought the company. I have never read anything good about Jennings pistols so I am a little unsure about selling them. I think I will buy one and give it a 500 round test first.

Jimenez Arms bought the machinery from Bryco Arms, which used to be Jennings Arms.

The Jimenez JA-22 (same as the Jennings J-22) is a little rougher in the action. Once you get the pistol, give it a good cleaning, keep it fairly oiled, and keep a good grip on it. It does not recoil much, but any small amount of momentum wasted from a slight limp wrist may cause a short cycle (not much mass in those tiny slides).

Also, these pistols work best when using 40 grain solids, such as CCI Mini Mags.

10/22 IMO, more accessories are available for it than any other 10/22. But I really think you should get a Charger (long pistol 10/22) its the best at nothing but its good for everything short and longer range.

I also own one so... yeah I'm pushing it partly because I own it but I do like it alot.

Balloons blowing over the snow on a breezy day with any .22 handgun. Mice eating birdseed on a graveled driveway with a scoped .22 rifle (great practice for hunting season). Squirrels with an open sighted Stevens Favorite (repros almost as good).

I like my Beretta Neos it is just light enough to bump fire it and when you get the hang of that it sounds like it is going full auto.

Now Don't get your panties in a wad I know some people don't like bump firing. So I don't do it unless I am the only person at the range. I know it is not legal to do in some states or what ever.

But it is fun......
