Default Comparing 3 Guns|P22|Buck Mark Micro Standard URX|HP22|

Let's see you already have a P22 which has a length of 6.26"

You want something smaller that you can carry in your pocket.

Although nice 22's the shortest Ruger or Browning is 8" long.

Now the Phoenix HP22a is 5.625"long. Yes, smaller!
This little inexpensive gun from my experience is accurate, pocket sized and reliable and has a lifetime warranty. Reviews are favorable. eats cheap 22 ammo. That's why i bought one.

You can buy 2 for the price of your P22. Give it a try.

there used to be a model 70 beretta in 22. if you can find one, they are slicker than greased moose poop.

I have been thinking about this subject again lately and thought I would revisit this thread.

Since the time I wrote this I purchased a Phoenix Arms 22 but did not like it very much. Even though it is small it is fairly heavy. Not great for pocket carry. It also has a confusing safety system.

I purchased a Jiminez 22 and I like the size and features on the gun a lot. The quality is just not there though. Reliability is spotty at best.

I have a Ruger LCP for pocket carry and a Kahr CW9 that I carry sometimes but I would still like to find a nice pocket pistol chambered in 22lr.

Yeah I would definitely look at the beretta's.
Buddy of mine has one of the tiny ones with the tip up barrel and it's been a ton of fun and reliable.

Love my mosquito broke it in with cci mini mags and now it will eat anything you feed it. Just keep it clean and the pistol has been great to me over 3000+rounds through it.

I highly recommend the new Browning 1911 .22 A1. It is 7/8ths the size of a regular 1911 and breaks down exactly like one; the gun is all aircraft grade aluminum except for the trigger, hammer, extractor, slid stop, etc. I have fired numerous brands of ammo through it and it has only failed to feed on 3 rounds from a 550 Bulk pack of Federal .22 ammo. I believe that was the ammo's fault though and not the gun's. The little Browning feels great in the hand too, and can serve as an excellent training weapon for a full sized 1911. It comes in a 100 year commemorative leather and canvas gun rug complete with certificate of authenticity. It is accurate too. It will do 2" goups at 15 yards which open up to 4" groups at 25 yrds. At least mine does from a rested position.

i've heard good things about the bersa thunder .22. i don't own one & have never shot it but there are members on here that do own them, hopefully one of them will chime in about that gun.

another option would be an old H&R 922 or 929 snub nose, or the more recent, but still out of production, NEF R92 snubby. both are revolvers but they hold 9 nine rounds
All I've had today is like 6 gummi bears & some scotch
