I got a new Ruger SR22 for my birthday and Father's day this summer. I had read lots of good reviews in various gun magazines and websites. I liked the fact that it was reported to be reliable and not ammo picky. I was not disappointed. It has fed my cheaper Winchester 555 bulk .22LR ammo without a problem. My wife and kids enjoy shooting it. I use it to train new shooters. It is well designed and manufactured. The trigger pull is nice. No recoil. There are two things I don't like about the SR22: 1) I don't like how difficult it is to seat a magazine in the magazine well. I can't use it for training magazine changes 2) I don't like all the safeties. It has a magazine safety and manual safety. The manual safety is easy to operate but backwards from most handgun safeties. I think the magazine safety is the culprit for the difficulty in seating magazines. Overall, it's definitely a keeper. Fix the magazine seating problem and remove or fix the safeties and it would be nearly perfect. Just my opinion.
