Looking for peer pressure.

Should I get a .22 conversion for my handgun?  Sure the ammo would be A LOT cheaper, but are there other benefits?

Most of the 22 conversion kits out there run about the same as a new 22 pistol, and most have some spotty reliability from what I've read/heard (mostly just reading reviews online and talking to my local gunsmith).

A glock 22 conversion kit runs about 259. Most of the 1911 kits I've seen run over 325. A Ruger 22/45 runs about the $259. So you could buy a whole new gun for the same price as a part for one.

The upside to the conversion kit is that you get the same trigger pull for your carry gun while shooting cheap ammo.

Personally, I went the 22 pistol route, YMMV.

I don't like subcabiler training.

Practice with the gun you want to be good with.
