New Ruger SR22 pistol

    Every gun Ruger's ever made is a mild ripoff of another design. Bill took other people's designs and improved them. Nothing new here. It's not my cup of tea, but I can see where it would be a fun shooter.

    It's a source of great pride for me, that when my name is googled, one finds book titles and not mug shots. Daniel C. Chamberlain

    It looks like a small cheese grater with a large trigger...... and sights!

    1st off I'm a newbie here and want to thank everyone for the honesty here. I will state very boldly that I'm in the process of purchasing the Ruger SR22 at the price of $319.00 and have done an extensive amount of research, the only concern I have is the trigger pull as I know most of you already know thats it's weak point. I am planning on using this as a last ditch survival/protection gun which would be stored in my Maxpedition Fatboy pack. I figure the reliability, weight and ergonomic feel will provide a sense of security if this is the last gun on hand. Again thanks for having me and I hope to learn from you folks.
    Better to be prepared then not prepared at all.

    The trigger is usable. Its not a match trigger, but it's not a match gun either.
    The Ruger will eat just about any ammo.
    I am afraid we forget sometime that the basic and simple things brings us the most pleasure.

    My P-22 is a fun little toy, despite the annoying safety and mag disconnect. It's also a little finicky on the take down/reassemble, and requires high velocity ammo to cycle reliably. If Ruger improves upon any of those things and charges less money for it, that is fine with me, because the Walther is over-priced by at least $50 - $100.

    You responded to a post from late January and early February of this year. Since that post, a few forum members have posted very favorable reviews of this pistol.

    Six-Gun had a glowing review that prompted me to get one and try it out. The following is my favorable range report on this Ruger from March.
