Default M&P 22 vs Ruger SR 22

Trying to decide between the M&P 22 and the Ruger SR 22. Any preference? I am looking for a good practice pistol and something my wife would feel comfortable shooting. I have read good and bad on both of these, but wanted your opinions.

We own the SR22 and it has performed flawlessly!!! It's a great little pistol that anybody can shoot. You won't regret buying this pistol especially since they are very reasonable in price.

M&P22 is made by Umarex, just like the Walther P22 and the SIG Mosquito.

Unlike those guns, it appears to actually be worth a damn.

M&P22 is full size. Only down side is that it only comes with one magazine.

The SR22 appears to be a great pistol as well, but is smallish. Not picky about ammo though.

Both appear to be great guns. I favor the SR22 because it is cheaper, magazines are cheaper, and it appears to be more reliable. I did see a M&P22 for under $400 the other day though and nearly bought it. I don't think you can go wrong with either.

I don't see a downside to either pistol. The M&P 22 seems like it would be a great understudy pistol for the M&P 9/40.

I purchased the Ruger SR22 for my bride because she said if she didn't go to the range with me she wouldn't see me. She is turning out to be a regular Annie Oakley - Who knew, and she is have fun to boot. My preference was the Ruger over the M&P 22 because it gets along with more brands of 22LR ammo. Given the challenge of getting 22LR ammo these days I wanted to make sure of a broad universe of availability. Still having difficulty getting 22LR ammo.

I went with the Mp22 due to the DA type trigger, all my other handguns are DA so I went with it, if I had all DA/SA I would have went with the SR22

the Ruger SR22 is a compact gun, the M&P 22 is full sized. There are advantages to both. But grip comfort needs to be paramount. My sister owns an SR22 and we shot that and an M&P yesterday. she found the M&P a bit too large for her hands, but she shot it more accurately than her SR22.

It's best to have her shoot them both and see what she favors. Both are great firearms, although their forms are a bit different. I will add that the Ruger is a bit of a tough pistol to field strip when cleaning and the M&P is far more straight forward, but that's just me.

To clarify , it's easy to dissassemble... Harder to assemble.

SR22 (as well as many other Rugers) is a bugger to strip, the M&P however, is quite simple.
