Not sure if people missed these, but just in case..... 1. The great state of Kalifornia has classified the Walther/S&W P22 as an assault weapon apparently and requires them to be sent to the factory to be modified. The threaded barrel is a no no and you need to have the threads removed by S&W. 2. Sig is releasing a P229 style .22 called the Mosquito. They claim it's identical in exterior design but is 7/8 the size of a full sized P229. Retail is around 350 bucks. I have been holding off on a .22 pistol, but damnit, a SIG would be a sweet addition.
