Walther P-22

Walther P-22

This is my wife’s Walther P-22. I purchased it at the October 2005 Wanenmacher Gun Show. I went to the show knowing that I might find one at a decent price, so I was going to keep an eye open. Well, 15 minutes into the show I had already found my good deal (best price I’ve seen on these anywhere). So, it’s her Christmas present. Well, I say “her“, but we all know I get to shoot it too.

We haven’t taken it to the range yet, but I’m pretty sure this is what she needs. She can handle my Makarovs alright, but the recoil on them is a little stout and her hands are just at the edge of being too small for it. She has had the opportunity to handle a P-22 before and it seemed to fit her hand well. It’s a .22lr, so I’m not too concerned with recoil or anything like that. In fact, I bet it’s a blast with a suppressor. More to come when there is more to say.
