I bought the SR22 for my wife to get more trigger time. I have an xd40 and wanted something full size for her to practice with but she didn't like the feel of the m&p and loved the sr22. I may pick up a gsg 1911-22 at some point because she liked that second best and I like 1911s as well.

Btw, the sr22 couldnt be easier to break down and reassemble ... My wife had no problems either.

I have the Walther P22 which is quite similar to the S&W. I have literally thousands upon thousands of rounds through it and have never had to replace anything. My wife and daughter both love shooting it, and my mother (who, best of my recollection, never shoots anything) got one after shooting mine. It'd be hard to find something that has better value (like $325) that can perform so well. I have not personally fired a SR22 but I have recommended it to others

My sis' isn't that easy. It's very difficult to remove the slide and consequentially also hard to get the slide back on properly, you almost have to finesse them on and off. And with any pistol with the barrel that is attached to the frame, it's a tough clean as well. Just my experiences with them.

the M&P is simple, just lock the slide, back flip the switch and slowly release the slide and done.

slight correction. the waltherp22 is similar to the ruger sr22. not the MP22.

not trying to be bossy or disrespectful. perhaps, you and or your sister need to take it apart more often? to be honest i probly take that pistol apart at least once every 2 weeks. perhaps yours just needs more breaking in??

That sounds very bossy! (Kidding). You may be right although the last time at the range the RSO had the same issue we ha with it. It sucks for me because I am the one that ends up dealing with it because my sister is a bit of a wuss when it comes to it. I strip my firearms several times before I even fire them. I'd rather get it all down before it gets dirty plus I have to clean the pistol before I even put anything into it.

I have a couple M&P 22's and really like them. I upgraded the sights with fiber optics and picked up several mags at Grabagun for $24 each. After a short break in they have been perfectly reliable and very accurate. Plus they are a lot of fun. My kids love them too. I looked at the SR22 and thought it was well made, but was way too small for me. Felt like a compact 380. When it comes to Ruger I will just stick with my 22/45 MKIII.
