Just picked up the P22 a few days ago. Ive put 300 rounds through it so far with no problems whatsoever. Its size makes it a bit too small to comfortably fit my hand (though my wife likes it), but its alot of fun to shoot regardless. The 5" barrel may be worth checking out if you plan to target shoot. "

Just got my P22 a couple of days ago and Im loving it. Went through a box of 550 federal rounds from my local walmart with out a single jam or misfire. Would definately recommend this pistol for anyone wanting to learn how to shoot or just want a great plinker to take to the range.

I love this little plinker. I have had more fun shooting this than any of the other handguns I own. I have put over 700 rounds through it and not one single misfire, stovepipe or other malfunction. I may add a 5" barrel to the mix, but the 3.4"" has been a blast. I wish the clips held more rounds, because you can rattle 10 off in less time than it takes to clear the smile off your face. Get one... and have a blast!"

My neighbor let me shoot his P22 at the range last weekend and I had no real problems with it. His was fit with a supressor and it still was very accurate. Im planning on buying one myself for plinking but will take the advice from other comments on this site and will not shoot cheap ammo.

Great fun to fire, but is jams a lot. A nighmare to dissemble, what a crappy design. Take it for what it is, a fun 22 that looks great and is fun.

I get to pick mine up this week, from co-workers that have this very piece they say its great and they really enjoy it. A couple of others have that Sig Misquito which gives them nothing but problems, one already traded his for the P22 and the other is going to do the same soon. When I get a chance to get to the range (hopefully this week), I will post a more detailed review.

Purchased a P22 7/31. $280. Great little plinker. Wife loves it too. Perfect gun to start off with for your wife or kids.

I have a P-22 and one of the little secrets is the inter-changable barrel system on the gun. I bought it with the shorter barrel and have installed the longer barrel which comes with a compensator for the end of it. The P-22 comes with inter-changable sights and a frame adust to change the width of the grip for us guys with fat mits. I have never had the firearm jam throwing all kinds of rounds through it. Except for sub sonics which I run through one at a time.

So I would suggest this is a great design and well made firearm that I would recommend to anyone interested in having some fun being able to change the firearms around without needing a gun smith. Cheers !
