Default Been shooting my new Ruger SR22P 22LR

This is definitely my favorite handgun to shoot. Lots of positive online reviews on it. Great for follow-up shots. Will soon purchase CCI Stingers for it--rated at Midway 32 grain bullet going over 1600MV. Am using an Uncle Mike' holster since I already had one for the Shield. It won't fit in the Blackhawk holster made for my Shield.

It has this feature that with the hammer back ready to fire with a cartridge in the chamber, instead of the way an older single action 22 hammer is held while the trigger is pulled gently, I just put the gun on safety and the hammer falls into place and no bullet is fired.

And the magazines are easy to load, nothing like a Mark III where I had to purchase a red plastic helper or else leave my range with a sore thumb.

It is either single or double action.

As just an average shooter, I highly recommend this as either a training gun for women or children or a fun gun for all shooters, or even a passable concealed carry since the high velocity loads to pretty well through FBI jell.

Most have an aluminum barrel but mine is steel.

Check out Target Sports for ammo. If you sign up with them, you get some pretty good deals and shipping is free for everything, not just the "case" orders.

Ive been getting CCI Blazer standard velocity for around $175 a case, and its been accurate and real consistent. Great "blasting" ammo.

Of course, we have to wait til the panic dies down a bit for a lot of stuff, but they will email you when it comes in.

Waiting on them to restock as I type, so I can pick up a couple more cases.

I debated between the Ruger SR22 and the Smith MP .22 compact ,I went with the S&W MP for 2 reasons it was on sale,and I have lot of Rugers but not a S&W.

The SR22 seems to be a great pistol for the money. We've had no problems with the ones in my family.

You won't be getting 1600 fps with those Stingers in the SR22. That's rifle velocities. Probably 1300 +/-. As far as self defense, I'd use solids in it.

Stingers might also give feeding or extraction problems since they are longer than normal.
There won't be any real advantages to using them in a short barrel.

my ruger sr22 shoots any 22lr ammo equally well including cci stingers, which have a bit more recoil oomph even out of its 3.5 barrel.
