So I do know that is extraordinary but a dud per thousand isn't unreliable in my book.

The only thing I've never had a failure in is 12 ga, and I'm sure it'll happen eventually.
It's not unreliable in your gun, but you can't say the same for the gun others own.

I'd much rather prefer one in 9x18mm Makarov.

Literally, we are saying the same thing but opposite. I guess that means your experiences are just as invalid as mine.

You don't have to carry that .22 pistol, you can love a .32 pistol. I really don't see why you felt the need to take my question as anything but an honest question. We both are shooting the same model gun. Is your experience typical or mine. Are we both extraordinary cases of luck, good and bad? Because I've only had good experiences with .22lr and haven't heard anyone else have bad experiences outside of the normal dud round every so often that every caliber and manufacturer has. I haven't been online looking at other peoples experiences and opinions before now.
