Everything ive seen with em the are decent little 22s if a bit on the short grip side for me.

I have handled one, It isn't any worse than my XD40sc for size, I know they can be picky on ammo, But to say they simply suck, I don't get it, Its not like a Jennings or anything

Only complaint i've seen with the Walther P22's is they are extremely picky with ammo and mags are sometimes difficult to find. My buddy has one and it will only shoot CCI Mini mags reliably but it works great with those rounds!

Welp... My friend came down a bit more on the Walther p22, So I pick it up tonight.
When I say he came down, It will run nearly the same as the cheapest price on a conversion(mid $200's)

cool thing with it is since you bought it used you can get the money back and get the conversion if you dont like the walther

correct!
However, Said money's were removed from the top secret stash, I still have thoughts of a conversion with suppressor that or maybe a Glock 20 or 29, Hankerin for some 10mm as well...


EDIT...
I have never owned a Glock, But its an easy pill to swallow for the cost over other 10mm on the market.
