    Ruger 22/45 :coold:

    (looks like the one below, only with a longer slabbed barrel.)

    When I went to the store I was originally looking for a P22, boy was I wrong about that thing. The P22 is freaking TINY, my gorilla hands swallowed the poor thing up when I held it. :rofl:

    Then I looked at the Rugers. They fit my hands much better, plus I loved the sights on the thing. I ended up buying the 22/45 blued for $279. :coold:

    Now I have to wait til Tuesday to pick it up. Stupid Liberal Laws. :mad:

    If you have anything larger than girly hands it will be uncomfortable IMHO. I could fit the p22 in the palm of my hand almost.

    My P99 fits in my hands almost perfectly so yeah p22 will probably feel to small.

    Good purchase!

    I like the full-sized .22LRs a lot better than those P22s. They just feel too small and like a toy in your hand.

    I had the same issue with the P22. Big hands + P22 = the lose.

    You'll love that Ruger (until you need to clean it ;) ) and it will last a lifetime.
