Sportsman Outdoor Superstore is having a Ruger sale. Various models are on sale. Notable models are the 9E, SR22 Blue, and SR22 threaded barrel. I'm lazy so I'm not listing everything but the 9E for $289.99 is a great deal since that's typically Black Friday pricing.

Shipping is free

The SR22 blue is a good price if you don't mind not having a threaded barrel....or owning a blue gun.

I have the threaded barrel SR that I paid about $320? Very easy to shoot and cock it. Easy takedown as well.

thanks op for posting

out of the 5 (and I want a manual safety), thoughts on the best one or two guns on the list ?
blue color I kind of like, and think for a 2nd ccw, wouldn't mind a 22 instead of 2x 9's.
consistent gun, very low rate of misfires/jams of course would be nice as well if you have experience with any of these.

thanks again.

The Walther P22 is basically a less reliable version of the Ruger SR22, you don't want it.

The PPQ is fine, though it lacks changeable grips like the SR22 has.

None of them are great carry guns, as 22 is a demonstrably less effective caliber than anything 380 and larger....I mean it's better than a pointed stick I guess, but if you're going to bother to carry then better to carry something most likely to be effective... there's plenty of small 380 and 9mm guns out there (the LCP and LC9S Pro are in this sale even- though plenty of other good options exist)


You also really do NOT want a manual safety on a carry gun, but that's a whole other discussion that's been rehashed about 9000 times in here, so PM if you want to discuss further rather than derail a nice gun deal.

wish there was a .22 version of the Glock 19 (for cheap practice).

Tactical Solutions makes a 22 conversion kit for the G19 (and most glocks)

I disagree about NOT wanting a thumb safety. I think it's entirely up to the shooter. I prefer a safety. You do not. That's totally cool. Fact is, if a shooter isn't comfortable with a gun, they aren't going to like or carry it. If this is someone's first carry piece then I really see the benefit in having a safety. But different strokes and all.

and in most cases I'd agree with you- but in the case of the person asking- they specifically wanted to be able to train with 22LR in an otherwise identical gun to their carry weapon.

So "another" gun wouldn't work for that poster, because nobody makes that gun in 22.

(and FWIW you can get 22 conversion kits for Glocks for less than $335, IIRC advantage arms makes a little bit cheaper one, don't know if it's as good or not)

I agree people won't carry something they're not comfortable with- the correct fix is to learn how, and why, you should be comfortable without the manual safety...because the only reasons to "feel better" about having one are either you don't understand how the gun really works, or you don't follow basic gun safety rules- both things anyone planning to carry should correct sooner than later.


But like I said, that's a whole other discussion- there's a number of fact-based reasons you really do not want one on a carry gun... ever (a modern carry gun anyway).... including that if you actually follow the basic 4 rules of gun safety it does nothing but make the gun more dangerous than not having one and slow you down if you ever actually need it in an emergency.

Feel free to PM if you'd like to discuss further rather than derailing this thread with yet another debate about it though

Closest you can get to a Glock in 22 would be the ISSC M22....Smilie
