    Is it possible to fall head over heels in love on your first date? Well, I think it is and I surely have fallen in love with my Ruger SR22 after putting several hundred rounds through it in the past few days.

    Have any of you purchased the Ruger SR22? How are you liking it? Ammo issues? Favorite ammo?

    I think the Ruger SR22 is an amazingly good little shooter.

    Here's the video.

    Should point out that the slide did not lock back after the last round shot. I'm trying to determine if this is due to how I was holding it, perhaps applying pressure to the slide lock button or not. Will report back.

    I have one and love it! I let my son in law and daughter shoot it, now they have one. It eats everything except federal cheapo bulk stuff until it is almost unrecognizably dirty. Cheap to shoot and FUN!

    Thanks, I think it is a pistol anyone/everyone would enjoy, very much.

    So far, I've only shot CCI through it. I'm thinking I would have problems with the cheapo bulk stuff, heck, I have problems with that junk with my Ruger 10/22 as it is.

    ^ Yeah, neither my 10/22 nor my Mk-II like that stuff. My non-Ruger doesn't, either (it's a Taurus PT-22.)

    I have been wanting a SR-22, though. Been waiting for the prices to come down.. saw them going for $350 at the gun shows, but didn't spring then. Probably should have. Now, in the shops, they're running closer to $430 or so.

    If you can't find a LGS that gives you a way better price than $450, I'd just buy from Bud's Gun Shop. My local fun shop gave me mind for $280, plus tax, of course. Better than Bud's cash price when I figure in the FFL transfer fee. Bud's has them for $339, cash price. Link here. And that is with free shipping.

    Thanks for the tip. Not sure I can justify buying another gun right now, but, maybe if I sell or trade one... hmm.. just musing here; I hate to get rid of any I currently have...

    Oh MedWheeler you need to jump. My problem was not cost, it was finding one available. Best grip feel ever and as far as ammo goes, mine likes Federal Champion, CCI mini-mags, Remington subsonic, Winchester subsonic (really liked this one for accuracy). Haven't found anything that it won't run well (however I never shoot Remington's bulk-packs).

    I've had one for several months and it's a kick in the butt to shoot. I haven't found any ammo that it won't cycle. FWIW, my LGS has them on the shelf every time I drop by and leave money for something I don't really need.

    I thought my LGS were bad. They tend to always be at least $25-$40 higher than what I can find at the gun show. A week ago I priced the SR22 at the LGS and it was listed at $349. After hearing others talk about getting it for under $300 I passed on it planning on waiting til the next gun show. But maybe $349 isn't so bad afterall.

    I've got about 2K through mine. Haven't been shooting lately as they're renovating the club's range. Been shooting it when I can, though. Bought it several months back at a gun show. It's 2" at 25 yards accurate with Federal bulk, about the best shooting ammo, though I got a 1.5" group with it using some old RWS Target I found in my stash. That stuff's expensive, not exactly good plinker ammo do to price. The Federal is fine for that.

    The gun has been jam free with only one or two misfires with the Federal which is less well primed than some. I get misfires occasionally with my other guns as well except for my Rossi revolver which has a round firing pin that makes a bigger dent. Anyway, no gripes from me on the gun, fantastic little field carry when I'm fishing and range plinker. I paid 325 for mine at a gun show.

    As a follow-up to my other post in which I say I see them going for closer to $430; well, I was in the shop again yesterday and saw one listed for $475. :what:

    Granted, they might come down from that a little but, with a gun show scheduled here in town next weekend, I still don't think they can cut a deal (unless they bring it to the show and price it accordingly!)

    Dang. I got mine new three months back for $325 after tax. Didn't notice a jump lately. That sucks.:(

    I bought mine at a show the first or second week they were available, and got it for right around $300. It absolutely refuses to feed Remington Thunderbolt reliably and doesn't do well with Federal Champion or Winchester Wildcat either, but I've had no problems with Federal Spitfire, Remington Subsonic, WWB and any CCI I've tried. I love the gun overall, and if the SR9 had the same or similar grips, I probably would've bought one of those.

    My wife and I love ours. Have shot the bulk Federals and Winchesters with no problems, which makes it fun and economical to shoot. It's really accurate for the short barrel. I got ours last April for $369 at Cabelas. They were hard to find then and maybe harder now. Yo'll love this little gun!:)

    I posted a few days ago that my LGS has the SR22 for $349. Well I went to the gun show today and bought it for $299. This was from the vendor who routinely has the lowest prices at the show. But after I bought it I actually saw another vendor have it for $289... I could've saved $10 but still very satisfied with the purchase. This is why I have bought the majority of my guns at the shows, my LGS are almost always $40-$60 higher on handguns.

    Definitely would not worry about $10, congrats.

    I just bought one online for $299.99 with free shipping & no taxes. My receiving FFL only charges $10.00 for the transfer. I can't wait to get it and check it out :scrutiny:!
