I cannot stress how satisfied I am with this purchase.

The HP22A, too often maligned as a "Saturday night special", is an outstanding pistol for the money. The deluxe rangemaster kit has everything you need. I favor the 3" barrel for the feel and less muzzle flip than the 5" barrel. This firearm has little recoil, and works 100% reliably even after 3,000 rounds of inexpensive Blazer ammunition. My girlfriend, who at the time had never fired a gun, immediately fell in love with it. It's not fatiguing to shoot, it's inexpensive, and a terrific pistol especially for beginner shooters.

PROS: Price of the kit, inexpensive to shoot, inexpensive replacement parts on phoenix-arms.com, low recoil, looks like a PPK, reliability

CONS: Taking it apart the first time can be a little tricky (take care not to lose the recoil spring upon dis-assembly... READ THE MANUAL FIRST), the safeties take some getting used to.

Overall: Best in class .22 range toy/backup pistol.

Rating: 5 of 5 Stars! [5 of 5 Stars!]
