    Unless I find any reason not to, i'll most likely be picking up a P22 tomorrow. Anyone here have any experience with them??? Thoughts?? Suggestions??? I just need a .22 for cheap practice.

    meh. i have one and it was alright at first.

    its very picky about ammo, some ammo it doesn't cycle well at all. some ammo it won't hold the slide back after the last shot.

    I didn't like the feel of it in my hands. I opted for the sig mosquito, but, to each their own.

    I love mine. More I shoot it, better it gets. Was a little picky at first, now it'll shoot just about anything. Love the feel of it, love the way it shoots. Had to swap out the front sight on it, but it's great now. If I had to do it again, only thing I'd do different is get the model with the threaded barrel.

    I had a P22 and sold it. It's too small and mine was bitchy about ammo.

    I replaced it with a Mark III 22/45, this fucker has never missed a beat with about 5k rounds of cheap ass bulk ammo through it. Ruger > * for .22's.

    Went to the range with a buddy of mine, he has a ruger MkII, I was shooting my neos & mosquito. I'll still take my mosquito every time. I wouldn't mind picking up a MkII, but it won't replace the mosquito for when I want to do some fun shooting.

    are you planning on buying a new P22? They did a revision, and changed the things that caused ammo problems. The slide was catching on the hammer and causing too much resistance. They rounded the end of the hammer, and did some changing to the surface on the slide that the hammer interfaces with. These are the exact mods that P22 owners have been doing for a long time, and it results in much greater reliability.

    I've shot a P22 and I've found them to be OK. Fun little target practice guns.

    Because you'd want to conceal the P22 for some reason?

    P22's are retarded fun, but finicky. I have no experiance with any of the others mentioned.

    Some things I don't like about the P22 that I've shot is that you have to fiddle with the mag to get the rounds to seat right (not sure if that's an old model problem or not) and I hate the location of the mag release button. It's at the bottom rear of the trigger guard, you have to push down on it. I find it rather ackward to use.

    Maybe not the CA p22's, but I've got the 5" and the short barreled, and both are threaded.

    I'm having second thoughts :o . I have until 4:30 to make my call. I just think i'm so anxious about getting a .22 that i'm rushing into it. Deep down i don't think the P22 is the right choice for me but the look and price are appealing to me :rolleyes:. I wouldn't mind a mosquito but they are pushin $450-$500 around here.

    My P22 is great. The first thing I did when I got it was take it apart and clean all the lube off, then spray a little dry lube and wipe most of it off. It hasnt had a single problem, I've shot both cheap remington golden bullets and CCI mini mags
