    My pocket pistol is a Phoenix HP-22. It’s small and very inexpensive. I have put thousands of rounds through it with no jams, FTF, FTE, etc. A lot of people critique them for having two safeties, but it doesn’t bother me. I train with it and it’s easy to develop a technique to hit both safeties at once and be on-target quickly. You shouldn’t shoot high-velocity ammo in it, as the manufacturer recommends standard velocity only. Mine cycles perfectly with Aguilar Super-Extra and CCI standard velocity. They’re just barely over a hundred bucks for one. My wife has one, too. It’s the only gun she likes to shoot.

    Thanks Joel for posting the picture for me. One of my favorite little pocket 22's. I can not believe how much they have gone up in price. Bought this one at one of the gun show's that you can't ever find a deal at, off the table from a dealer.

    Yea, those are cute and prolly work for you men with the little girly hands!! I got full grown ass man hands and those cut nice little stripes on the web betwixt the thumb and pointer finger!! Coarse had I not choked up on the pistol and clamped on the death grip like I was shooting a real gun instead of that little girly toy I prolly would have not had to explain to every Tom, Dick and Harry how I was shooting and got the scratches and not wrestling a pussycat!!! :hey3::mosh::cool:

    I just sold one of these --- owned it for years and <I>tried my best</I> to get thousands of rounds through it. Tried probably 20 different types of ammo of various velocities and it didn't like any of them. Best I could achieve was semi-decent performance with Super-X and CCI in the 1200fps range I think. Sent it back for service once and it didn't get better in the least.

    Not sure if it counts as a "pocket" 22 but my Gen 2 Walter P22 eats literally everything no sweat.
