    S&W 22A - .22 LR or .22 L Ammo

    I am a new gun owner, so this is all new to me as I am learning a lot. I have a S&W 22A. The manual says to use .22 LR ammo, but can also use .22 L and .22 S. I assume the preferred ammo to us is .22LR. Is it safe to use .22L for this gun? Any issues with misfires or jams? Is it better to stick with .22LR? In terms of keeping the gun in tip top shape, does it make a difference if I use .22 LR or .22 L.

    Thanks - this site is great, learning a lot from here.

    You will be able to fire shorts or longs in the gun but they will not feed from the magazine of cycle the slide. Not really worth it, IMO.
