    Nope. I have a Browning Buck Mark that I like very much.

    I like the LCP .22 concept for woods/hiking. I hope Kel-Tec comes out with a P-22.

    Yes, a gun that big needs a bigger round count, but I'm more on board with a P32-sized .22 with ten rounds.

    That would mean it would have to have a double stack mag which are not as reliable as single stacks when feeding rimfire cartridges.

    Ruger has announced the 10 round LCPII in .22LR, single column magazine. I think 10 .22LR will fit in the space of 7 .32 ACP rounds.

    I kind of gave up on rimfire during the ammo shortage, sold the couple I had. But yes I may be buying this one for GSSF.

    I'm not one to beta test a new Glock.

    I've been shooting .22 LR I bought in 1995.

    I usually have a couple thousand rounds of 9mm on hand. But I’m not really interested in storing a lot of ammo. Plus .22 just not as interesting to me as when I was a kid. But if I can use it in GSSF I might buy one,

    I wonder if regular magazine quick loaders will work on the magazine?

    Probably, just waiting till potential bugs are worked out and the price drops. My kid would love shooting something like that!

    Yes, and I am excited about it. It isn't that I need it for a training pistol, G19 is great and I can load 9mm pretty cost effectively. I just like it for what it is, a Glock 22LR semi-auto pistol. The Glock trigger system has always treated me well and having that in a 22LR that is all Glock looks great. The review I watched talked about how Glock has spent a lot of time making sure it will feed most anything you throw at it. I also like that you could use it to intro new people into shooting with the Glock platform, then transition them to centerfire.

    Got mine ordered. No. 7 on the list. I've been shooting the Wrangler a lot lately. (The latest rimfire challenge is coming along too!) I like shooting .22's. I like new GLOCKs. Didn't get much for Christmas, that's about to change!

    No need. You grasp the follower assist tabs that stick out the sides of the mag. You just lower the follower against spring tension. Lower a little, insert cartridge, lower a little, insert cartridge, lower a little, insert cartridge, lower a li.....on and on. It's easy to load.
    The gun writers show using a table top to set the mag base on, then just work the follower down. A first grader could do it.

    I'm sold on the Uplula magazine loaders for Rimfire and Centerfire. Even "Tough" magzines like the 13 shot G21 and the 13 shot Hellcat are a breeze. I don't like the side buttons on the Rimfire magazines.

    I have the Maglula Uploader for my centerfire handguns and also one for my rimfire handguns.

    I’ve just received a MacFadden Ultimate Cliploader for my Rimfires and it just blows the others away. After some adjustments and getting familiar with it I could load 6 magazines well under 2 minutes. I tried timing my old loader and I quit after 2 magazines. No comparison.

    That's what I thought when I bought my Colt 1911 22. There's still blood on some of the magazines. Get a dedicated speedloader.

    The mags for a High Standard Military Model H-D will disabuse you of that. Hardest to load 22 caliber mag I have ever seen.
