Why didn't you guys tell me how fun it is to shoot this pistol?! Bought a used SR22 last week and finally got it out to shoot it, sad that I forget how fun it is to shoot a 22. Ammo shortage be ****ed, I'm tapping into my stock. It has a threaded barrel and 3 mags, and the previous owner even threw in some ammo. I shot some of my own remington standard vel stuff and was pleased that it stayed subsonic (absolutely giggle quiet through a suppressor). It's just a fun little plinking gun and I'm tickled to finally have one. Sorry to anyone who has one and it doesn't cooperate for them, but I'm sold - one of my best gun purchases!

Ah, another happy rimfire experience. This is the kind of shooting joy that keeps us all shooting rimfires.

I must admit that I don't have an SR22, but I have been tempted. However, whenever I shoot my CZ Kadet, I get the same feeling as you expressed, sambull, from shooting your SR22.

I think most of us quit trying to convince people to buy an SR 22 a long time ago. I tired of the back and forth comments anytime someone tried to defend the SR back when it was first released and had a few issues.

Instead I just enjoy shooting my SR every chance I get and letting others try it out at the range. Over 6,000 rounds and fired by a dozen or more individuals. Its a pure pleasure, extremely safe, easy to clean, pretty darn accurate pistol.

Congrats on your SR. Try some steel shooting with it. That is a blast!

Yup, lots of fun to shoot.

Took mine out yesterday and shoot a couple hundred rounds through it.

don't tell anyone....

if everyone knows how good the SR22 really is, it will make the price go up.

I wonder why the guy sold it (used) to you? Maybe needed some quick cash, but I would never sell mine unless I was desparate. Excellent little pistols

Love this pistol. When my wife puts it down long enough for me to shoot.

First pistol my daughter ever shot and her first trip to an indoor range. She put 400 rounds through it and loved it. Her arms were sore the next day, not from recoil but from holding her arms up for an hour and a half. Ours usually goes to the range every time and the only real problem was the broken take down lever that let the slide fly downrange. Ruger repaired that and there have been no problems since.

You should check out the Wingman Bumpers we offer. The Wingman adds +5 Capacity to your mag, extends the bottom of the mag for bigger grip. And Installation is a snap

Added these to All my mags. Love the 5 extra rounds they provide. Very well. Made and simple to install. The slight extension is perfect for my Large hands too.

I don't have one yet, but it's on my wish list. Don't think I've read a bad review on it yet. It's competitors from Walther and SIG consistently get slammed in forums for being jam-o-matics. The Ruger comes with two magazines while most competitors only include one (and extras are often expensive and hard to find).

I gotta agree with you. The only thing I can see those doing, is to line somebodies pockets, and waste "hard-to-find" .22 rimfire ammunition. I'll save my extra $$$$$ and buy a couple more magazines.
