This was my third Phoenix arms HP-22a purchase from Buds. That alone should speak volumes.
In many respects I like this one best of them all. One of the things I like about the HP-22 is the ability to change to a longer barrel.
Longer barrel = longer sight radius and increased accuracy. Now you can mostly only buy the short barrel, then go to the manufacturer and buy the longer barrel and a second
magazine for around 40$. This deluxe kit gives you all that in one package, plus everything you need to clean and maintain the gun in one neat package.
Includes a locking storage case, 2 barrels one long one short, 2 magazines and the frame.
Now please note that I am not saying the Phoenix arms is as accurate as say a Ruger.
But it does not cost as much either. In fact you could buy 2 or 3 for what you would pay for a Ruger.
In the time that I have owned these firearms I have yet to have any significant issues.
In short, they just plain work.
Now I don't carry concealed. But both of my cars have one of these little .22's in a zippered bag. Gun unloaded, but with 2 loaded magazines right there. And a plastic box of
100 rounds of ammo. I have never had to use mine, and hope I never do. But it is better to be prepared and never need something. Than it is to not be prepared, need something
and not have it.
I think of it as a self defense insurance policy. For a fairly modest amount I can if needed defend my wife and myself.
