Any good 22 or 25 auto pocket pistols?
 
I'm getting my tax return in a few weeks and I want to get a pocket 22 or 25 semi auto that's not a total pos which most seem to be. Ive owned a raven 25 and have since sold it but I've seen first hand how un reliable this particular pocket pistol was any suggestions on a decent one?

Beretta makes a bobcat in .22 and .25. They also make a Tomcat in the more reliable .32 as well...

DRVSAFE beat me to it. I have owned several Beretta pocket pistols, (mouse guns) The 950BS is an outstanding quality pistol. I think that the .22 and .25 is a bit light-weight for serious work, but they are fun guns to own and shoot. The Beretta 418 is a bit older but James Bond used one, so they must be great guns......

If it's size that is holding you to those calibers, check out the LCP as well, it's a true mouse gun as well, but in .380.
Keltech makes one similar as well...not my choice, but they sell a lot...

Ya I'm just looking for it as a shooter and now looking at the price of 25 ammo I'm gonna go with a 22 I didn't know baretta made pocket pistols definitely gonna check those out. I've owned a kel tec p11 but in 9mm it was way to snappy also I want something just a tad smaller.

Well, the Keltec is snappy due in part to the caliber in comparison to the weight of the frame. The lighter the frame I believe the less absorption and hence more felt recoil.

I almost pulled trigger on Beretta but no extractor was a no no for me. So I pulled out. I'm happy enough with my current Phoenix hp22a. Shoots great with right ammo.

My Raven was perfect!

Jimenez ja22 both perfect!

I was looking at adding a Norton tp70, still haven't decided. 25 ammo is WAYYYY overpriced!

I bought this years ago, when I was in a pocket gun buying frenzy. It's the Bobcat .22 I like the pop top barrel, it makes it easier for my wife to shoot and the action is a little stiff for her.

I also have the KelTec P3AT .380. I can tell you this; the KelTec is not enjoyable to shoot given it's stature and level of recoil. My wife carries the KelTec P32 which is simply the .32 caliber version. Far less stressful to shoot at the range. I bought hers used for $175. Some dude bought it new from the local dealer, then decided he wanted a bigger caliber shortly thereafter. His loss, my gain.

Beretta 950 is my choice. It rides in my pocket often. Load it with Hornady XTP fore 960 FPS (chronographed.)

Never had a malfunction in over 1000 rounds.:)

i go with the keltec p32 smaller and lighter then most 22-25 and a little more punch then the 22-25 you will find most from 250-279 brand new mine has never failed to fire or cycle
