Once, an officer said, The .22 makes small holes." I replied, "I have a 30 round magazine, it will make a lot of small holes."
So how quick did you end the fight when you shot a suspect with your 10-22.
Please give details. Shot placement, rounds fired, number of hits etc. would be helpful for those of us that think going after a bad guy with a 10-22 is a really bad idea, regardless of the penetration issues.
Would also be nice to know which department gave you their blessing to use a 10-22 for the scenario you explained.
