Re: Need Opinions Please
I have very limited experience with Walther's recent design .22 LR pistols. I cannot and do not recommend them; especially the P22 family.
The Bersa .22 LR close copy of a Walther PP is a good pistol for cheap practical pistol (aka self-defense) practice. I have not evaluated the new Ruger pistol designed for this market.
The Ruger 22/45 remains likely the most gun for the least money in a target/utility pistol catergory.
