    I remember many, many years ago a friend and I would go out shooting 22 rifles. Mine held 9 rounds. His held something like 20. Needless to say, he had more fun while I was reloading.

    I'd say if you're gonna shoot a few hundred rounds and only have to reload the magazine half as often, that would be more fun. Your mileage may vary.

    I hope to have a "shoot off" soon with my .22 semi-autos... The Taurus TX22, the Colt 1911-22, the Ruger SR22, the Ruger MKIII 22/45 lite, and the KelTec PMR30 (.22wmr)

    I like them all... Each different and each enjoyable for their own reasons

    Took it to the outdoor range and tried her out at 30'

    The lrn CCI std velocity had trouble cycling the slide (always ejected spent round but didn't give this blowback enough "umph" to put the next one in the chamber... Hence a few failure to feed)

    The high velocity ammo (CI) copper plated did just fine... No hiccups

    Groups of 10 you see marked were while I held the gun (supported) on top of a wooden box

    The trigger is a little heavy at 6.0lbs

    Pleased so far... Hoping trigger will smooth out

    A fun fun shooter!

    Not exactly a bullseye shooter, is it? I suppose its niche is practice gun for a 1911 carry. But, that's one load. I always try a multitude of loads when I get a new .22. Some loads are lucky to hit paper in a given gun while others are tack drivers. .22s are odd.
