I actually rented that Ruger for her at our gun range and she didn't like it at all. Had a lot of fte issue too!

I have the 22lr xchange for my P229. My wife and I go on the occasional date night to the local range and I am introducing her to shooting with this gun. I have the e2 grip and not only is it easy on recoil, but she gets excited on how accurate she can be with it. I highly recommend the kit. Besides you know YOU want it for yourself too.

Well I got my wife started shooting about a year ago and she didn't have much choice in the matter her first shot was with a S&W Sigma 9mm that she carries everyday now!

The Walther P 22 thing. The Sig felt to top heavy and I heard issues because of the spring being to heavy pull wise. I,ve read about the Ruger and it's issues with getting dirty quickly so if I ever got a plinker ,it would be the Walther. I know this is a Sig forum and this won't be taken kindly but , there ya go.

my experience with FTF FTE with .22 calibers is not so much the weapon as the ammo. I use CCI minimags exclusively because my S&W 15/22 hates the WWB

I know its a Sig forum...Check out Browning. They have a reliable one called Buckmark Camper. There is also a new release this year 12 for a 1911. Check it. My Browning will shoot straight and far. Need only get some Firesights by Williams. They also have a Whisper model that has a threaded end on it. (muffler) Must be for shooting quietly in the garage?

i have two p226's and a p220, with .22 cal conversion kits for each. this allows me to take the kids out to the range for a full day of shooting that does not break the bank. they also get to practice with a full sized frame and the same trigger pull, just not the same kick.

i have found that dry firing the conversions will leave a small dimple in the receiver, right where it is hit with the firing pin. hey, it happens. i have had to go in several times with a diamond file to knock that dimple down so that the brass does not hang up. that has taken care of all of my "failure to eject" problems. for "failures to feed," it is usually because the ramp gets dirty. i just take a small pocket knife and clean off all the caked on powder. i can usually get half a box, 250 rounds, before i have to scrape off the crud. a "failure to fire" is handled as any other.

i have been running blue box bulk federal champion and the girls have been having a blast. now i just have to teach them how to clean these afterwards......

I've put a whole brick through my 22/45 Mark III in a single session without cleaning and it was still chugging right along. No hangups, no failures to fire or eject. I have one FTE with CCIs every thousand rounds or so. I've done a lot of work on my piece, too. It's super smooth, now...

Best pistol for an 8 year old, hands down, is the Browning 1911-22. Very easy for smaller shooters to handle, and a lot of fun for bigger folks. Excellent quality, fit and finish, she will enjoy it it the rest of her life.

The Rugers are very nice, but too big and heavy for kids to do well with.
Mosquitos are real nice, but the grips are too thick for little hands.
We have all three..
I love the little Browning. I borrow my brothers whenever I can.

I want one of those Browning 1911 .22s... The compact would be an awesome ccw piece for those carrying .22s. I've packed my 22/45 before, and trust me when I tell you that a 5.5" bull barrel is more than just a bit uncomfortable...

I'm just gonna stick with the Mosquito for her. She's seen pics of it and has been wanting it pretty bad. I'm just curious if there are higher capacity mags available for them.
