Yeah. New Toy For Me.
01/09/13 10:14 PM

Brought home a new toy today. A Ruger SR22.

Came with two mags, each with a pinky extension and two flush caps, a suppresor ready threaded barrel (for a .22?), a barrel cap for if you want to remove the threaded barrel cap, a barrel lock, and a soft case. I found almost nothing but great reviews online; most saying they had fired thousands of round without any failures. One guy said he went through 700 rounds right out of the box with no cleaning.

So far it is really comfortable to hold, points well, and is very small and light. I actually tucked it in my waist band and was easily concealed under just a 'wifebeater'. The trigger pull and reset are long in double action, but the trigger break is clean.

It has plenty of safety features with a thumb safety (also acts as a decocker) and a magazine disconnect safety. These are great being that I got it to start teaching my nephew about gun safety and how to handle a gun properly (and maybe a little fun for myself).




Ruger SR22 and magazine with pinky extension.




and for some perspective:



Ruger SR22 next to full size M&P9.




Mike,
Pembroke tomorrow at 6pm. Gonna break it in.

Will update with some range info on how it performed soon.

Nope. We're still going Saturday early on the quest for the holy Shield. You are coming right?

This was Jayson's new purchase disguised as a way to teach his nephew about guns.

I've had mine for about 3 months now. Quite a few fail to fires in the beginning but I blame limp a wrist. I stopped shooting like a queer and only get one failure every so often. 

All in all range little gun is fun! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do mine.

You have to be a weak little girl. 

it hit me when we took Tommy's niece to the range. I ran through 2 magazines with no issues, but when she got to the firing line she had failure after failure.

It was fun. Went through about 400 rounds with only one failure, light primer strike.

Until the cleaning.  Took so much torque to try and get the threaded end cap off that it broke the barrel free. Now its twisted and stuck in the slide.  Guess I get to see how good Ruger's Customer Service is after only one trip to the range.

Nope. Maybe I should just stick to S&W. No problems with that one, and it has more rounds through it than any of them.

didnt you have to replace the firing pin spring on that one?

but yeah, theres nothing wrong with guns needing maintenance from time to time, but it seems like the ppk and especially the ruger should be new enough to not need any yet.

Don't know about the ppk, but the Ruger was probably just bad luck. Pisses me off just the same though.
