Re: Walther P22 Opinions?

I am a Ruger guy myself. I like the MK2, But I was shooting with a guy that had one a couple weeks ago, after the third mag threw the gun it did very good, it was a brand new gun. He was using the cheap ammo from wal-marts. You will not get the range or accuracy of the longer barrel guns, and I would not recommend any 22 as a carry gun. Not that a well-placed 22 would not drop a bad guy. There are just a lot of guns better suited for protection.

Re: Walther P22 Opinions?

You need too buy what you like. I own several handguns and not just Ruger. If you read enough post you will find someone that will trash it. Over the years I have owned Hand guns by many manufacturers. And if a good name they will perform for years.

Own one..Very dependable and accurate...Has a smaller grip which suits my smaller hands. Likes fast ammo, but never had a problem cycling cheaper loads...

Re: Walther P22 Opinions?

My wife has had one for years it is the one with the extended barrel shroud. Never had any problems with it even when new. Great little gun.

the thrill is not in the kill, but in the experience

Re: Walther P22 Opinions?

My wife has one as well and our children started out with it. I have always heard they like hotter loads, but we've never had a problem with anything through it.

Find the time.....

Re: Walther P22 Opinions?

Be sure to check out the trigger pull on that Ruger....Don't know about the model you're looking at, but they can be pretty stout. Not condusive to accurate pistol shooting...
