I've had a 22A as well for a long time and it is one of my favorite guns. It shoots well, is extremely accurate, is cheap to shoot and maintain, and jams are a rare thing. This was one of my first guns as well and it replaced a generic six shooter that could not hit the broad side of a barn if your were standing inside the barn and threw the gun at the wall.
Imagine my surprise with this little beauty. The very first day I had it I was shooting 2" groupings at 25yards. It has a smooth trigger pull and very little kick back (obviously). Sights are easy to adjust and the tear down and cleaning is fairly routine for a semi-auto.
After I had owned the gun for about a year I purchased the "Target" grip. This is a large, flat base, wooden grip. It fits my hand better but seems just a tad bulky at times. If I were carrying this gun in a holster or on a regular basis for anything other than target shooting I would probably put the tactical grips back on. I have thought a million times about carrying this thing in the woods with me when I am clearing out paths, etc. It would be a great snake charmer as it is accurate and cheap to shoot.
