I just picked up a 1911-22 a couple of weeks ago and I have to say it's a fun little shot. I am newish to shooting and have been using a .45 to practice with and it's a little much for me to get the fundamentals with so the husband suggested a .22. Since I love 1911s, when I saw the Browning it was love at first sight. It fits perfectly in my grip and since there is little recoil I am having a lot more luck with not shooting to the left like I do with my .45. So far I have about 150 rounds down range with it. I had 1 stovepipe, and a couple of failure to feed, but otherwise it has been very good to me. I was hoping to get to the range this weekend but we are expecting snow so I don't know if that will happen. I love the way this gun feels in hand so much I ordered a .380 as well, which should hopefully be in within the next week. Here's a pic of my .22.
