As footnote: Just hit the 1k/thousand round count with my LCPII22LR and have had little issues to report. These last few range visits I pulled some old ammo stock out to cycle our supplies. I used some Blazer 22LR 38gr. 1235fps. LRN to run and had no issues. No leading. Out of a brick I may have had 2 failed to fire. Keeping it clean and using a good grip for me has worked. Now to start looking at backup parts and replacement parts for emergencies. This Ruger for me is a keeper.
