Only way I would carry a 22 would be if I had good shot placement. EVERYTIME. If not, then NO WAY!



Its not a carry caliber in my mind.


.32 is really cutting it close. .38 and above is where I stand on defence weapons.

I don't normally carry a .22 away from home but here in south GA where the heat index hits 110+ on a regular basis you sometimes wear some WalMart shorts and a T shirt. When you got two little pockets in front and an elastic waist band it's hard to carry anything heavy. Below is my NAA mini in .22mag and a holster by GURU.
Guru's philosophy is "I'd rather have a .22 in my pocket than a .357 back in my truck."

Makes sense to me.....

I'm not sure if I would carry one, but I do keep a .22 semi-auto stashed in a secret spot in the house(several guns are stashed).
Figured it might come in handy one day.....

Cute and self defence do not belong in the same sentence together ;)
Amen!

Just be sure they are hidden well. You wouldn't want to have an intruder find one and fight you with your own guns. ;)

As far as a .22 for home defense; I wouldn't have a problem using one of these. :D I would mount it in a second story window. ;)

I am with the Gunny on this. Cute and fun if all you are killing is tree rats. Defense with a .22 will just get you killed.


But of course as an avid gunner you must know that a large number of folks have been killed over the last 100 years with the little 22 cal. All about shot placement! A 22 head shot is lethal!

Probably more deer have been shot and killed with the 22 cal than any other cal. :lol:

But would you trust the lil .22 to stop a raging crackhead charging at you from 5 feet away? You do not always have time to get a bead and place the shot accurately, you have to use the cowboy move and shoot from the hip right out of the holster. And for that I want power :---

Yep, that is why I personaly use the 380 as a min cal and the 45 for other times when I know I am going to wander into a questionable territory.

I don't know how that got turned around but I didn't write that about the .22 Gunny. I would never buy a .22 for protection. I seen the results of a women who was shot 5 times in the face with a .22 and lived to talk about it. Yes she was disfigured but she lived. The .22 has been knowned to bounce off peoples skulls and not penatrate. Yep over the last 100yrs a lot of folks have been killed with a .22 and there's been alot killed with knifes too. A .22 head shot is not always lethal,bloody for sure.
