If you go to U-tube there are currently quiet a few videos reviewing the Ruger LCPII in 22lr. I don't understand the interest in this gun now since it came out in December 2019. The reviewers always refer to the gun as "new". That aside, the gun is interesting and they always compare it to the LCPII in .380. I have the .380 version of this gun and I agree with the critics that it is not a fun gun to shoot. The recoil is pretty snappy and the grip is not comfortable - for me anyway. Practically all the videos on the .22lr version of this gun seem to be pretty positive. I like the extended mag with a capacity of 10+1 rounds compared to the .380 version with only 6+1 capacity. The manual safety on the .22lr is a bit weird in that it moves horizontally instead of up and down. But while the reviews of this gun are positive and I have no doubt it is a fun gun to shoot, this brings up the question of whether you would carry a .22lr pocket pistol for self-defense. I can see the argument for and against doing so from both sides so I will reserve my opinion for now. But I would love to hear from members who have opinions on this question.
