My primary shooting buddy and myself have been big advocates of .22lr trainers for a while now. Cheap ammo = more trigger time, and more trigger time is always good.
I definitely agree with mention of not using .22lr handguns for multiple shots on the same target though, I can double-tap with my P22 like a mofo, and that has lead to some frustrating range sessions with the 45.
Another key point in the article is the mention of a new S&W M&P pistol in .22lr. I hope this is true and not a missunderstanding with the rifle. The P22 is fun, but I need something full size with more holster options and not the price of a Sig 226 in .22lr.
