    Jake,

    I had looked at one a while back just for shooting. I found it a little blocky/bulky for my liking! I ended up getting a Sig 1911 22 Cal Pistol for around $360.00 which I really like very well and it amazingly accurate. But each person has their own likes and preferences and the way the gun fits them so I am certainly not trying to discourage you. That was only my observation. You know what fits and feels the best to you. Obviously a 22 is not the best personal defense weapon! But great to target shoot and have fun with.

    I have one that often has a Sparrow attached to it. It is accurate and functions well.
    The can gets it dirty quick. The slide fails to lock back after a few dozen rounds.

    I have one that shoots well at this point. Here's my P22 story. I hadn't shot much in about 20 years so I knew I wanted a .22 to start with. A friend had one and loves it, but warned me it took about 1,000 rounds to become what he felt was 100% reliable. Getting back into shooting I thought that a bunch of FTE and FTF issues would be good training at the range. Better there than in the real world with a bad guy. So, I dealt with FTE and FTF with regularity for the first 500 rounds or so. Then it got much better. At that point it started shooting High Velocity rounds 100%, and shooting standard stuff pretty well. At 750-1000 it became pretty darn good. Part of all that is shooting rimfire in a $350 semi auto. I fondled the Walther the Ruger SR22 and a Sig Mosquito. I went with the Walther due to comfort in the hand. IMO the Ruger and the Walther are interchangeable. But the Ruger seems to have a better reputation with reliability and feeding different ammo. I used the P22 as a training device, and used its feeding issues to my benefit.
