    Which should I get?
    I love the p22.
    Pros
    It's small, fits in my hand well, ammo is CHEAP, looks great, is fairly cheap in price, aftermarket is pretty good.

    Cons
    hate the safety. Ammo is weak, HATE the magazine slot (it never wants to slide all the way up, and feel funny - or my skin gets caught in it)

    P99 - 9 or 40 (have not shot that much so don't know that much about it)

    Pros
    a little bit bigger, fits well in hand, looks great, aftermarket is good, somewhat cheap in price, better magazine design then the p22

    con
    ammo price is a little bit more expensive

    P99 in 9mm. Ammo isn't that expensive and it can be used as a defense gun.

    Fuck the P22.

    If your too cheap to even buy 9mm ammo then don't buy a gun.

    Why not check out some other .22 handguns that you might like the feel of better? Maybe something that's larger more like a normal full-sized handgun. Those P22s are small.

    I like the .22LRs because you can go out and shoot awhile for a box of $7 ammo. If you just want to punch holes in paper, then I'd go with the .22lr.

    If you're wanting to use it more for defensive purposes, then go with the 9mm but ammo is more expensive. Sure, $11 for 100 rounds but 100 rounds goes quick.

    Yeah, after you reload and shoot enough to make up for $300+ initial investment for the reloading equipment (assuming you buy good equipment). Reloading is only cheap if you shoot ALOT, shoot expensive ammo, or don't buy the equipment yourself.

    What do you plan on using the pistol for? If it's anything involving self defense the P22 should automatically be ruled out.

    reloading for the p99 isn't a good idea, AFAIK its a composite gun, reloads may work fine on all metal guns, but a single overpowered round can blow and plastic gun apart, there are a lot of pictures on the internet that show glocks that have shattered due to overpowered rounds

    That all really depends on how accurately and consistently you reload.

    I don't see how ammo being weak is a con because anything you do with a .22 shouldnt require any real power :hsugh:

    Did it do this right when you got it or did it start after you were using it awhile?

    blkgs4 has the same issues.
     
  19. I liked the looks of the P22 but read a little about them and supposedly they're not the most reliable out there. Ended up with a Beretta Neos and I'm perfectly happy with it. Doesn't like Aguilla ammo though.
