OK. I'm not trying to be a smart-ass. But "Why?"

(with some training under your belt, many people think that you'd be much better off with a contact weapon than a .22, I guess I'm one of them)

I am also thinking WHY are you looking for a really really small weapon or do you just shoot a .22 really good? I think if you can put a bunch of rounds into a bad guys head at 10 or so yards under pressure then you might be ok with the .22.

i have a S&W 422 and its fast light concealable and I can drill the head of a sillouette at 15yards but still I would rather have a bigger more reliable round than a rimfire 22.

Seriously, I wouldn't consider anything less than a .380 for carry. And even that is borderline.

Glock 22?

I think the answer to that would be "a .45"

Carry a real gun, unless it's for assination purposes. A .22 would be a great contact weapon, then.

i think I would rather have a accurate 22lr than a 380.

My first thought is "Why?" but hey, that's your decision. A .22 is better than say, a sharp stick so if that's what you want then go for it.


So to answer your question, I would vote for a Walther P22. It's a 3/4 size frame similar in design to P99. It ends up being just slightly larger than a Glock 27. Good shooter, and they can be had for about $250.

Haemmerli!!! Nice .22!!! 10 rounds! Infinitely accurate (Guy hit a grape on the moon from Texas with 1 shot and a 50,000,000x scope)

All the badasses in Switzerland and all the neonazis in Germany use it! Proven service record!



Get in in red, yellow, blue, or black: (This is the short version).




Go for the long barrel version OR maybe this special model:



Then again you could go for the special SIG P210's in 9mm:













Ouch the above ^ hurt my eyes!!! PURPLE????



OR: get this .22LR:!!!!! YEAH BABY!!!

I've ALWAYS wanted one of those.. now what they're going for by any chance? How much extra are the hardwood grips?

I remember when they first came out that the trigger pull was something like 15-16 pounds???? Know if that's gotten any lighter?

RE: the S&W 317 Airweight.
New over $400. Used from 325 to 375.
Mine is the 3" with target sights. Makes a great bicycle gun. It thinks it's a 6" target pistol. Loads of fun. Double action pull is 7-8 lbs. Single action 4-5lbs. Never noticed a problem with the trigger
