The P22 is an awesome plinker. It is a perfect weapon for women who are wary of handguns. It is almost too fun for teenagers who might begin to view it as a toy since it is small and so easy to wield.
* Small form factor (for smaller hands)
* Unintimidating weapon for new shooters
* Extremely accurate
* Fun, fun, fun for plinking
* Small Form Factor (for larger hands)
* Unintimidating to the bad guys
* Finicky about cheap ammo (Absolutely loves CCI Stingers)
* Tricky reassembly after cleaning
My wife would put 10 well-placed rounds through anybody who try to take this gun from her... I'm pretty sure that she loves it more than me.
