SeraphimHD,

Just curious, but why is it that you and your dad bought the handgun. Is it that you split the little cost or is it that you are not old enough to purchase one yourself. I'm not judging, I'm just asking.

There is a 3 day wait in Florida?

I'm 22. We honestly walked into the store just to look, my dad caught the itch and wanted to buy one then and there.

I hope to get my concealed weapons permit sometime soon, but I won't be carrying a P22. I'd be carrying a Kahr PM9.

And yes, they initiated the 3 day law a while back. That way people can't get mad and run down to the gun store and buy a pistol and shoot someone while they are still mad. They can buy a rifle/shotgun and walk out same day though. Doesn't make sense, but whatever. They do the full background check and all, and the gun store we buy it at doesn't give any info to uncle sam. They keep it all in house.

CDNN has the mags for a couple of bucks less. They had a sale a few months ago for $19.99.

I have a P22 and love it. My son has one, and two friends as well. All are 100% reliable.

For informal target/plinking I use the cheap WallyWorld Federal stuff. It doesn't always go "bang", but that is not the P22's fault. It does the same in my Buckmark, High Standards, TPH and several revolvers. Most rounds end up firing when run through a second time.

CCI velocitors and Mini Mags always go "bang".

If only I had to wait days....rather than a year on probation lol

(actually will be about 6 weeks from when I am finally given the OK for a permit to accquire after that year expires...)

[Have tossed around the thought that a P22 might be nice for plinking practice, after I buy a 9mm for competition. However with the greatly restricted range time I'm able to excercise...well that might be sheer pointlessness ]

Congrats on your P22. Had one for about 3 yrs now & love it. Mine seems to shoot just about everything well. Have well over 2000 rds through it without a single FTF or FTE. I mostly feed it Federal or Winchester in the 550 pack from Wal Mart. Take it apart every 500 or so rds because of wax buildup. After cleaning it's ready to go.
It will shoot better than I can hold it. Looks a little space age, but you get used to it. Good Shooting!!
Mac
