Default Walther P22 = tons of .22LR fun!

Second outing for the P22. First session was all CCI Mini Mags, per suggestions here and elsewhere. Flawless in all of those. Today was the real test - bulk Winchester 555 ammo.

Got to say - that ammo sucks! Wildly varying powder charges, even though I only had one failure to detonate (and the round subsequently fired when fed into the chamber a second time), and accuracy about what you'd expect from bulk .22. However, this little gun is just fun fun fun! I love it. Makes shooting my 1911 almost like a chore, now!

I got the 3.4 " model off Calguns , You gotta be quick. I picked the 5" model off a local gun store last year. I really like the 3.4" model, Ive got big hands and I still grip this thing perfectly. I keep it cleaned and lubed and I havent had jamming or ftf problems at all.CCI mini mags and remington yellow jackets are all Ive tried , both feed great.

I love mine. Love the mag release lever and since it's so lightweight, it really makes me work on a smooth trigger pull. I am more accurate with my USP .45 than this little guy, lots to work on!!

Ammo brothers in Cerritos. When I went there, they had three kinds - the OD frame one that I bought, one with a silver-colored slide also with the 3.5 inch barrel, and an all-black one with the 5.5" barrel. That one was like $500+, though, and in any case, I liked the smaller one anyway.

At first, its light weight and small size threw me off and made me miss the Ruger Mark II that I sold a little while ago, but now that I'm used to it, I'm loving it more every outing.

BTW, not all the holes in the target are from the P22 - I was also shooting my Sig 522 Swat standing offhand at 25 yards.
