I want to get one for my girlfriend. I am trying to slowly condition her to be more comfortable and want to shoot. Her brother screwed it up for me though. The first gun she ever shot was a snub-nose 44 and it scared her. It did permanent emotional damage that I am trying to overcome now.

Thunderbolts suck. And Winchester bulk as well have had some issues with my sisters sr22. CCI mini mags and federal premiums do well with hers.

Just picked up the SR22 today and haven't been out shooting it yet but I really like what I've heard about the gun.

This should help get the wife a little more involved. Nice easy to rack slide and, from what I've heard, almost no noticeable recoil.

Looking forward to getting out to the range, soon.

I will find out how bad they suck(thunderbolts) tomorrow. They will be shot along side some Federal Auto Match......
When My Wife first Handled the SR22 in the GS she didn't like it. Now she does,...

It's been said many times; make sure you clean your barrel well after shooting the thunderbolts. And make sure not to shoot copper plated ammo after shooting them...until you've cleaned the barrel.

Thanks....I generally take all Rimfire ammo to Produce more "Fouling" then centerfire,...so I basically clean the 22's Before & After each range session. Good thing is I only bought one brick...Better thing is we have 7 Other Bricks, incl. 2 of Auto Match...plus 200+ of them loose....After the Next Session they'll Be used up,...so we'll be back on Either Winchester Super X's Or The Federal RN's... Also have a few of the Sniper Sub Sonics, so I can Rent their suppressed 22 as well.

Well Doc...how did it go with the Thunderbolts? I purchased some befire reading all the reviews and before getting my SR22 (which I have still yet to shoot) so I'm curious as to what turned out for you.
