i glad you went with the ruger. when you compare a p22, and a sr22 they do look like the same pistol. the differences are hard to spot at first. and some you cant see. the p22 mag release is a little lever on the rear of the trigger gaurd. the sr22 is a standerd button release right where it should be on the handle.the rugers handle can be changed very easily, just a quick pull. the ruger slide is made from aircraft grade alluminum. the p22 is pot metals( odds n ends all melted together). the p22 will function good with bulk ammo, it just takes awhile as already mentioned. had to put over 1000rnds of cci through one before it would take any bulk ammo. havent tried bulk ammo with the sr22 but intend to later today. ruger is made in USA. walther is imported
I have been a silent witness
to all of America's finest hours.
But my finest hour comes
when I am torn into strips and used as bandages
for my wounded comrades on the battlefield,
When I fly at half-mast to honor my soldiers,
Or when I lie in the trembling arms
of a grieving mother
at the graveside of her fallen son.
