    Comments about Taurus PT-22 Handgun:

    I've seen several somewhat negative posts about this gun. I bought mine and ran a couple hundred rounds through it. The only casualty was a sore trigger finger. The gun never failed once. It fired off every shot of Winchester and Aguilar? ammo I put into it. The tip-up barrel is GREAT as are the over-sized rosewood grips that mine came with. Yours may be different depending on which model Gander Mountain is currently stocking. This is a double-action ONLY gun and it also includes a safety that is easily operated via your thumb. Another safety feature is the locking mechanism and key that come with the gun. The gun will not fire if the magazine is not completely engaged and the magazine release is easily actuated with your thumb as well.

    Breakdown is a snap. Tip the barrel up, push up on the slide and you're done. Putting it back together entails placing the slide back on the same way it came off. Easy Peasy!

    Don't attempt to use the slide to load the gun. While this is possible, you need gorilla hands to do it. I've done it a few times and believe me, it's TOUGH!

    A "con" is the heavy trigger and long pull. Trigger "reset" is all the way back to the starting point. For the first time I can remember, my trigger finger got tired LOL!

      Comments about Taurus PT-22 Handgun:

      This was like a lot of Taurus products, it depends on the day you buy it. The one I bought was terrible, went back to the factory twice then I got rid of it. The thing with a Taurus is that you can buy the same thing the next day and it could be the best gun you own. I later bought the Ply22 and it's one of the best small guns I own. The question is, do you want to take the chance.

      I own or have owned 4 Taurus pistols and I have been happy with the quality and the operation of the guns. this pistol refuses to feed more than two rounds before it jams. I will think long and hard before I buy another TAURUS.
