piggybacking off of Merc's first paragraph: and a .22 with lots of range time is better than any other caliber with no range time for self-defense. yes, i know, even for me a .22 is not my first choice for first defense. but given the choice between no firearm and a .22, i'd tell a friend to get the .22 every time. any caliber is useless unless there is range time!
however, i have strayed way off topic.....
i still like Bugs bra correlation: i mean, ladies, how many of the dang things do we have to try on to find one that fits right?! and then expect a man to pick one out for us?!
same with guns.

Gun Control: "The theory that a woman found dead in an alley, raped and strangled with her own pantyhose, is somehow morally superior to a woman explaining to police how her attacker got that fatal bullet wound."-- as seen on a t-shirt
