The only times this has ever happened to me is when I have to buy Remington ammo. Never had a problem with Winchester, CCI, or Federal.

I have a Ruger 10/22 Stainless and only had issues with inferior 25-30 round mags
(Ram line). No problems with Ruger rotary
Mag or their fabulous new Ruger BX-25 25 round magazines.

My Ruger 22/45 works flawlessly with the exception of when I use CCI Quiet .22 LR at
800 fps, but that is for extra quiet shooting And all you do is hand cycle the slide for every shot.
Subsonic cycles fine as does standard velocity.

No jams.

Sure they can jam occasionally, but .22s are for plinking. If EVERY magazine you fire jams at least once on you in a Ruger 10/22 or .22/45, you are doing something wrong (or you have a bad magazine or crappy ammo). IMHO

Since I live in compliant state NJ only shoot 10 round mags, MP15-22 with 2000 rounds maybe 3-5 miss fires, also have Sig 1911 with the same about of rounds twice as many FTF's, this gun picky with ammo Remington Golden Bullet hollow point the best by far. MP15-22 no issues with factory recommend ammo.

When training I want misfires and stove pipes as that gives the trainee an example of what can happen. For that reason I buy a lot of cheap ammo.

Now if I'm in a timed shoot I want performance and I go with high quality ammo and better forearms.

If you never experience something out of the ordinary in training and you go to the real world you will not know what to do. I want to have a student leave with more knowledge than how to hit a target. I never had a NVA wait till I could figure out how to clear a weapon - - - in the real world stuff happens and you need to be trained for it.

I used my brothers Walther p22 for my CCW test and I scored 2nd highest in the class. The only other guy that beat me was using a competition 22. I believe he was a law enforcement student too. I don't know what problems you guys had, but I love that pistol.

I have seen negative comments about the P22 on here before. I have had one since they first came out and have never had any problems. It's not my favorite gun but it's not junk. But this is not the only gun which some are great some are not.I also own a raven 25acp which has never failed and I'm sure I had it for 30 years and a few hundred rounds so go figure
