I for one can say that as a man I don't feel bad saying that the PT22 has been my everyday carry firearm. Since I picked it up on Thursday, I've practiced carrying it while waiting for my CCW permit gets in (one of the joys of living in AZ is conceal carry without a permit), and I like the PT22. I got it so both my wife or I could carry it comfortably. I can't wait to take it to the range, but as far as ease and fit and finish. I really like it.
So, I COULD say that I got it just for my wife, but I will happily admit that I enjoy carrying my PT22.
Only had mine for a little while, but it's great. So far no ammo probs, except when I used up a box of old CCI standard velocity. My 22PLY really seems to like hi-vel stuff better. I think after the springs loosen up a bit, it will probably take anything.
