The "Walther" company is legendary for making the "P-38" and James Bond's "PPK". But now, they've really done it!!! And "it" being "The WALTHER P-22." This gun is without a doubt the funnest pistol I've ever fired. It's comfortable, reliable and very accurate. To make a long story short, I never in my wildest dreams thought I'd have a girlfriend that actually liked shooting as much as I do. I truly believe this gun made that possible. Firing the small .22 caliber rim fire cartridge, the "P-22" is very controllable and inviting to people with medium to smaller size hands. And although the .22 caliber bullet is not widely known for being a defense round, you can find some very high energy bullets that would make it suitable for just that. And seeing a 14inch flame appear when fired during the bright daylight sun shine, one could argue it's probably one of the best personal carry weapons anywhere. The laser sight mounted below adds another layer of accuracy and deterrence.
Oh yeah, there's always a few yahoo's at the shooting range that uninvitedly express their lack of confidence in a .22 caliber pistol, and yet for some silly reason no one will let me shoot them in the leg with it. hmmmmmmmmmmm what's up with that????
Anyways, If you are a gun owner or currently considering it, I highly recommend this model.
Also I'll post some fun shooting range tips at a later date
FYI I'm not a dealer and do not own stock in the company...
