    have any of you shot a 22 caliber (LR) pistol? in my opinion its crap u need to use specific rounds (cgi) i think its useless plus its about a 20 pound trigger pull now im no perfect shot but i do ok and i waz about 10 feet away n could not hit anything and on top of all that i had to take the grip off be cause the trigger would not pull. tell me what you all think of the 22 (LR) pistol i have had no luck with them.

    Some .22 handguns are awesome. Could you be a little more vague?

    Ummmm, there's probably about a bazillion folks that would disagree with you - me included. Both my Ruger Mk III and my S&W 617 will shoot about any ammo and neither has a 20# trigger. BTW, if you want to establish any credibility at all, perhaps you could actually write out your post in English as most of us don't read "text talk".

    Since you don't say what brand of pistol you were shooting, it's hard to comment further...

    Both my gsg 1911-22 and bersa thunder 22 feed anything I stick in the magazines. Both have superb triggers and are pretty damn accurate.

    22lr pistols are awesome!

    Could you elaborate on your pistol with a 20lb trigger? I'm curious...

    Exactly which pistols did you own? I love my M22, yeah it required an initial break-in period but well worth it. .22LR is very cheap, fairly accurate, and just has very high fun-factor.

    What kind of pistol are you shooting?
    If all .22 pistols sucked, no one would ever buy them.
    Help us help you, some detailed information would be helpful.

    Well, there's your problem. Jennings 22lr pistols are not known particularly for their functional reliability, compared to other 22lr's, and are cheap, but that's just my nickles worth. YMMV. :cool:

    What gun are you using? Most 22 lr pistol and revolver are pretty accurate.

    If you find a police gun buy back program that would give $100 in a gift card, take it for the Jennings. You will come out ahead. Save your hand and eyesight the gun is junk.

    Jonathan- The Jennings sold for about the same price as a good set of grips for a REAL .22 pistol. It was a very low end mass produced very short range pistol. I have High Standard, Colt, and Ruger automatics that have a trigger pull around 3 pounds, and at 10 meters will put 10 rounds into a single ragged hole if I do my part.

    You are attempting to judge every .22 pistol made on your limited experience with one of the worst that was made. Based on that, all beer is horrible, because I once had an Olde English Malt Liquor- and it was terrible. And all pizza is lousy, becuase to tried a Totino's frozen pizza- and all women are ugly, because I saw Rosie Odonnel.

    The only .22 pistol I have (now) is my PPK/s in .22.

    First trigger pull (double-action) is terrible, but the single-action is sweet.
