Got a Walther P22

While waiting on my Witness 10mm to arrive I decided to get something to plink that had cheap ammo. I can't begin to describe the quality of this weapon. With no adjustment of the sites I could hit center target from 25 yards out. I put 100 rounds in the target in 3 minutes without a single jamb or feed issue.
I highly recommend this firearm over most all .22lr weapons for target and small varmints.

For being the only 22 I own, I like my P22.

That is kind of shocking, to me anyway, considering the weapons that you own.

Very nice weapon, looked at and shot a few. As far as the size was concerned the Walther was the clear winner, at least for our needs. Looked at and shot the Sig Mosquito and had feed as well as misfire problems, could have been the gun or ammo, not sure. The Walther "felt" better, and was priced better I couldn't pass

So what the hell does having five thousand of the fuckers have to do with shooting 250?

Granted, I paid less than $250 for this pistol, but I was hoping to have a reliable platform for suppression. It completely sucked out of the box. I couldn't even get through a mag without jamming. Those with limp wrists had even more trouble.
It's a freakin' .22 LR pistol; can it REALLY have enough recoil to be limp-wristed? Yeah, in theory I see how you could do it, but you'd have to be like 3 years old and have a wrist 1 cm in diameter.
