It would be a great first handgun for my wife.

Cool little pistol, but have no use for a 22, would buy one in a good center fire round for conceal carry.
I don't understand where Ruger is going with all these 22's they introduced in the last year, not any fun to shoot a 22.
Why not put the production space to better use making a SR1911 45acp compact instead?

I have many handguns, from 17 through 500. I like them all, but if I ever had to pare down to just one handgun, it would be a 22.

It’s very tempting, since I’ve always had the inkling to purchase a Walther P22 just for the compact size.
I’m thinking Ruger’s version will be much more reliable than the Walther.

If I had to pare down it would be a 357mag at the smallest.

I agree! You just MUST have a 22 handgun! My "last to go" would be a Single Six in 4 5/8".

I enjoy all my .22s but none would be my only handgun. This new one looks nice but I won't be getting one anytime soon. 8)

well I disagree, we can do that here right? a 22 is about a much fun as shooting a cap gun.

Ha ha ha.... That's funny! I can't shoot my cap gun at 100 yards! A skilled hand gunner can do quite a bit with a 22 revolver!

Several comments:

#1) Even with various auto and revolver center fires available, we find shooting our .22 LR pistols to be more enjoyable. You can uncover various flaws in technique faster (the limited recoil does not hide anything) and practice for far less money with a .22 LR. Just my opintion I love my .22s and usually spend more range time with them than anything else.

#2) I have to admit I am a little disappointed in this offering. I would have hoped (keeping in line with the above reasoning) that the SR22 would be a .22 LR version of the SRXXX line. I would be real nice to have the option to practice with a .22LR with all the same controls, grip, etc as the SR family of center fires. Again, just my opinion.

IF it's made of better stuff than the Walther P22, I'll give one a try.

If it's the same Zamak-type stuff as the Walther, I'll pass.

The Bersa is a well-built alternative that has been reliable for me.
