We wish Ruger had tried to copy the original PPK 22 pistol instead of Walther's P22. That would have been an original concept, we thought. Still, Ruger did a fine job. Like the Walther, the gun won't fire with the magazine removed. The ambi safely levers drop the hammer, so you can't carry the SR22 cocked and locked. Theres a rail up front for light or laser. Two magazines came with this new Ruger product, and Ruger provided extra finger-extension mag bottoms if you prefer. Like the Walther P22, the Ruger's grip is changeable. The rear sight is fully adjustable, which we liked.
At Gun Tests, our shooters have had no problems with the P320 in terms of reliability and had no malfunctions with it. We gave it a Grade B rating in our first report on it in 2015. Many of our readers have told us they wont buy B-rated guns, especially when there was another handgun in the test a Heckler & Koch VP9 9mm Luger which earned a Grade A rating and was Our Pick.

Sergeant Parkerson posted on the Nextdoor.com app, "Burglary of Motor Vehicle suspects were recently caught breaking into vehicles in what they considered to be an upper-scale apartment complex. Their objective was to locate and steal guns from vehicles they identified on the property. Their method for choosing which vehicles they would break into was to simply locate any vehicle on the property that had some form of Law Enforcement, Fire Department, or Military-style decal on it. From their experience, they [the suspects] have learned that these vehicles would have a higher probability of having a weapon in it that they could then steal." More
From the standpoint of gunowners' rights, will Judge Kavanaugh be "fer us or agin’ us" if he's elevated to the Supreme Court? Or, said another way, will he be a "good guy on guns” or just a so-so one? "Right now, nobody knows for sure how a 'Justice Kavanaugh' might rule on gunowner rights at the SCOTUS level," said Gun Tests Editor Todd Woodard. "But the tea leaves, the entrails, the penumbras suggest he strongly leans our way." More
