The P22 is about a like a Kel Tec it has core of loyal fans the rest of the world wouldn't own one. From my experience it takes a year or two of cursing it, abandoning it in your safe, finally you figure it out and have a pretty nice gun.
I have shot several P22's that were accurate and a pleasure to shoot but from the owner reports I wouldn't buy one.
I would take a look at 22/45 they are extremely accurate and I haven't heard anyone that owns one say a bad word about it. My neighbors 14 yr old son has a 22/45. He takes care of it about like you would expect a 14 yr old to care for a gun and it just keeps firing. His idea of cleaning it is washing the mud off it when he comes in off a 4 wheeler. The 22/45 is about $50 cheaper too.
"I do not aim with my hand; I aim with my eye. He who aims with his hand has forgotten the face of his father.
I do not shoot with my hand; I shoot with my mind. He who shoots with his hand has forgotten the face of his father.
I do not kill with my gun; I kill with my heart. He who kills with his gun has forgotten the face of his father."
