My father bought a Taurus PT-22 yesterday and finally applied for his Georgia Firearms License. Yes, we know the .22LR is a lousy choice for self defense, however its pretty much a necessity in this case. He is missing his left hand index fingertip making it very difficult to shoot from that hand. About 30 years ago, he was in a bike accident and completely shattered his right wrist. So, the .22 is about the only thing he can shoot reliably.
My question is directly at the PT-22 owners. The magazine is rather difficult to remove. While holding down the mag release, you have to get a decent grip on the mag and pull it out. I haven't gotten a chance to break it down and clean it up for him yet but was hoping to get some advance knowledge.
Also, I've read they are rather picky with ammo. Suggestions? I'm guessing your typical higher powered stuff like Stingers and maybe hopefully MiniMags?
