Got a P22 last week. Nice cheap ammo that I can share with my 10/22 and small enough that my wife can learn to shoot without getting scared of recoil. Now I just need to find a good range.

Good for you! The P22 is an awesome little pistol... I think it requires a bit of a break in period, but other than that, I think you're good.

Do you have any other rifles in bigger calibers? Or are you just a .22 man?

Congrats on your first pistol purchase!

I've been debating on buying a P22 for my wife for sometime now.

Right now it's just .22. I've never had a need for anything bigger because all of my friends/family had stuff I could borrow. Now we're 1500 miles away so I'll have to start building a collection of my own.

I've read about the break in period. That shouldn't be a problem as long as I can find a decent range.

Ah, the p-22 one of my favorite handguns out there and I dont even like handguns!

I just got a fake Scilencer for mine and not only does it look great I seem to be able to shoot MUCH better with it! I think it may have to do with the balance of it now.

Congrats on your pistol, the first 200 rounds you will get one or two jams but after that you can use cheap Walmart High vel ammo and it will eat it all day without jams.

Oh, btw Im going to try and cut and paste some p-22 mags to make a 20 round mag here for them soon with a TIG welder, once I get them working il post on here and see if anyone wants to buy some. I did it in welding school with a Marlin .22 10 round mag and it works good. <- Yeah it was after the ban expired.

making this Walther sound gooooooood. might have to get one for plinking. cheep ammo sounds more and more inviting every day.

no to mention they feel great in my hand.

The older ones can be really picky and had some issues, but alot of it has been ironed out by now. They can still be ammo picky and tend to like high velocity ammo more. A WAYYYYY better defense styled 22 than the Sig Mosquito.

Congrats on the first handgun buy. I'm also looking at the P22 since I'm now in the market for a .22 for reason of ammo being much cheaper than .45 or even 9mm for plinking purposes.
