I have one that shoots well at this point. Here's my P22 story. I hadn't shot much in about 20 years so I knew I wanted a .22 to start with. A friend had one and loves it, but warned me it took about 1,000 rounds to become what he felt was 100% reliable. Getting back into shooting I thought that a bunch of FTE and FTF issues would be good training at the range. Better there than in the real world with a bad guy. So, I dealt with FTE and FTF with regularity for the first 500 rounds or so. Then it got much better. At that point it started shooting High Velocity rounds 100%, and shooting standard stuff pretty well. At 750-1000 it became pretty darn good. Part of all that is shooting rimfire in a $350 semi auto. I fondled the Walther the Ruger SR22 and a Sig Mosquito. I went with the Walther due to comfort in the hand. IMO the Ruger and the Walther are interchangeable. But the Ruger seems to have a better reputation with reliability and feeding different ammo. I used the P22 as a training device, and used its feeding issues to my benefit.
