    People have made comments about the fit, finish, and reliability about this little gun, but my first experience has been a great one. I used the .36gr hp bulk pack from Walmart and not one FTF, FTE or any other kind of malfunction. It's not THE most accurate .22 on the market, but I would take it out any and all day for lots of plinking fun.

    I used to have a p22, never had issues with it, it was a neat little gun. I got a Mk iii and after shooting it I sold the p22 right away. I'm not bashing the p22 at all, it's a great gun.

    Mine has worked well, I only shoot CCI mini mags, no ammo issues..
    My only complaint is the rear sight has too wide of a notch, thus accuracy issues..

    I have one of those too.... most accurate on the market? Seriously??? Compared to what? Have you tried the fixed barrel 22's? Buckmark, or whatever that thing Ruger makes, will out-perform the P22 in the accuracy department.

    ?? What the OP said was, "It's not THE most accurate .22 on the market...."

    Thanks for the video.

    Love shooting my P22 as a warm-up. I have AA kits for my Glocks but most of the time I shoot DA/SA pistols ant the P22 is an easier transition.

    The P22 is a fun gun to shoot. I have major issues shooting bulk .22 ammo (tried Federal and Remmington) in mine. I have been buying CCI Mini Mags and they shoot fine.

    Fun little gun. I have personally put over 30,000 rounds through mine over the years and still enjoy shooting it.

    My wife just got one of those for "her" gun. I tried to talk her out of it & into the Ruger, but she like the Walther better. It is kind of addicting. She shoot well with it, and so far it is 100% with CCI Blazers. Good choice! I was wrong & she is happy!

    .....why would that not be different than firing any other firearm? Wearing safety glasses while shooting is common sense.
