When it comes to a "defensive" round you want to end the threat NOW, not on the 25th shot, but the first.
We are talking about using a 22 as a defense round, not trying to ask if it can kill. If you are defending using a 22lr for defense over larger calibers, I guess we just cant get through to you. Go ahead and use it. Just be sure and tell that bad guy who is trying to kill you with his 45ACP to stand still so you can pump several rounds into him and wait for the results.
Whoa bro, coming on me a little too strong? I am a 9mm guy and not pushing the .22 agenda here. I am just saying that it could work and if you can unleash a storm of .22, more power to you.
Relax bro, I'm on your side.
