This is a discussion on New LCPII 22LR on the way home. within the General LCP Discussion forums, part of the LCP Pocket category; I get no benefit from shooting Stingers out of short barrel pistols. Fun yes sometimes, but for me not practical....
I get no benefit from shooting Stingers out of short barrel pistols. Fun yes sometimes, but for me not practical.
I went back to the range and shot more. This time I also shot a box of CCI Stinger. Even though the gun was clean to start with, I think I had more FTFeeds and FTRTBs, especially with Stingers. It seemed that the longer case and light bullet do not really work well with this gun. I think my particular LCP-II 22lr seems to work best with 40gr high velocity ammo.
I ordered some Winchester Super X 40gr Hyper Velocity and Power Point ammo. If the 40gr Hyper Velocity ammo works reliably, I will stick with it
Stingers and Winchester don't run well in the lcpII 22.

Well rclark, looks like me and you are the only one's to step up to the Plate on this forum to get the LCP 22cal.
Just ordered one for $299 and free shipping. Was going to wait for a while, but 380 and 9mm is about DONE. I have ordered about 5,000 rds of 22.cal on top of what I have. I have to train with the small Barrel some way. So here we go.
Looks like we are the only two in the LCP 22 club. Really surprised no interest at all of this forum for this gun.

Cannot believe they only ship with one magazine. Rip off. Just ordered two more from EBAY. $37.00 and some change. (two Pack). They are OEM mags in Ruger packaging. That is the good part. Which means magazines are only about 20.00 ea. Training with the LCP22 and the LCR22 will help keep the short barrel pistol skills honed. A MUST IMO if you own one and carry one.

Just went over the 500+ round count with ours and still having no issues. I like this little LCPII22LR and it turned out to be worth it. It does stink they only send one mag but I ordered two twin packs so I now have 5 for the range. I will get more when I can find them on sale. Many people have complained of issues but mine and the other 4 people I know that have one have had good luck with them. Mine cycles well and I keep it cleaned. This is a good gun to practice with for me. Price is high but worth it. With all the crap with the looting and and ammo shortage I am glad I am stocked up. I will train much more now with this one and my other rimfires. Hope you get good results with yours I will be interested in your findings. My knowledge is limited but I get buy. I love shooting all these small guns. Do not have any 380's anymore but love the rimfires, 9mm and my S&W642 38spc. Thinking about getting a LCRx, SP101 or GP in 357 next.
*There are some here on this forum that have them but this forum is really quiet. It would be nice to get more interest sparked but it is what it is.
*Maybe a section on the LCPII22LR would spark more posts?! These guys have been good to me.
I have been shooting the Phoenix 22'cal but they weigh 20oz so not really pocket guns. I also shoot the SR22, but again not a pocket size gun. And again the LCR22 is my favorite.
The days of shooting 200 rds of 380 will have to take a back seat for awhile. I am really hoping the LCR fill that itch and need to keep up my skills.
Last day of decent shooting of a pocket gun below. (380) 200 rds mixed--- I can reload, but believe supplies are going to dry up as well.
Yes ammo and access to firearms around here have taken a dive. I see many people flocking and buying due the mess we are in. I just spent time at the range again today with our wonder 9's, 1911's and kept the ammo count down to conserve.
*I did put another 200 rounds down range with the LCPII22LR. MiniMag RN with some Federal and still had no issues. I also shot my S&W642 and loved every minute of it. Going through the process of selecting grips now on this one.
