-I sold my Ruger SR.22. Reason: I was shooting it more than my other handguns due to the price of ammo. I will not allow myself to get another .22 handgun, at least for the foreseeable future.
I agree this is just crazy. Practice with a .22 transitions over to every other pistol, like others said the fundamentals are all the same. You just gave away your cheapest and best practice tool, not to mention loads of cheap fun.
