I went from owning one .22 to owning 4. It is nice to go out and shoot and only spend $20 instead of $100. Still like my larger cailbers but the lil rimfires are growing on me.

I have many .22s in both pistols and rifles, but just recently did the Ruger 10/22 project. Quite addicting -- I kept it simple and not super-expensive. But a 500 dollar rifle that shots 10 rounds through the SAME hole in the target at 50 yards is just friggin awesome.

And cheap. I take the Walther P22, Buckmark, 10/22, Marlin 60, etc, and can shoot for 3 hours and never get bored. All for less than 15 bucks worth of ammo. I dig it

And back to the point of the thread- The P22 is the wife's gun, and loaded with stingers, gives her peace of mind as a self defense pistol if the /357 revolver is out of reach.

I recall now when you worked on that 10/22 -- even managed to kibbitz a little bit on that thread...

I must say you did some really nice work on that rifle, and the fruit of all your labor was evident in the final product...

Thanks. Taken to heart and much appreciated. Hope to upstage that one here before too long.........

Safe shooting, everyone!

At one time I had a Ruger Mk II with .22 Remington Vipers for protection. I used that round because it has the best penetration.

Anybody shoot the Aguila super hyper velocity round they have out lately? I think its the fastest .22 long rifle in the world right now, faster than the CCI Stinger!

I recently bought a Heritage single/six revolver and only shoot .22 mags in it and use it for home defence with soft nose bullets.
My second and back up is my Ruger PC4.
I would use the Heritage first bacause a handgun is a lot easier handling in the home in an emergencey I'd think.

I think the matter of defense and the .22 depends on the range. Up close, the bad guy may not realize he's been hurt bad until he has hurt you worse. From a distance though, with a scoped rifle, I put a whole bunch of faith in the .22 LR. If you have time and room enough to properly aim, a quick double pop from a .22 rifle can produce a wound channel very similar to that of a 9mm HP. 2 fast rounds to just about anywhere in the neck will take the bad guy out of the fight. If you have time to aim for a major joint, like an ankle, knee or shoulder, the assailant is nullified. 2 fast shots to the groin will likely cause him to wet his pants for the last time.
In the house, my Glock 19 is boss. At any range from 10 to 100 yards, I trust my .22 rifles to prove any ballistic points that may need to be proven.

Interesting perspective -- good food for thought...

I'd take the semi auto carbine over the single action pistol. Our troops clear houses with rifles every day, it just takes training to do it "safely". The carbine will be more accurate even at room sistances, fire several times faster and a hot .22lr out of an 18" barrel is not far off a .22mag from a pistol.

I have a few Heritages I keep loaded up with .22 mags. While my EDC is a Glock 30,21 or 19, I still keep a few of the Heritages in different locations around the house as a "just in case" that may aid in getting me to my larger caliber in an emergency situation.
For roughly $150 I can't see not having a few laying around in the cabinets and end tables.

Is a lighter bullet best when shooting the .22 magnum out of a pistol? Say a 34 grain hollow point load?

No. Your only hope is penetration and perfect shot placement. So as heavy a bullet as you can go and as tough as you can go. Most often any cartridge up to and including .380 ACP needs to use FMJ bullets to have a chance in hell of penetrating enough. Exceptions are the super premium .380 bullets.

.22 Mag is a really bad idea even for a BUG. Better than nothing but still.

I just now caught this thread. As far as a .22LR goes for SD/HD, if it is what you have on hand or can afford, use it. As a newly married student in seminary I worked as a security guard at night in a shipyard. I usually had no real problems getting intruders to leave the property. There was however one particularly bad incident during which several intruders opened fire on me. At the time, I had very little money. I bought and carried a good folding knife and a Ruger Mk. I loaded with HP ammo. I practiced shooting rats behind the work buildings. Since they seldom sat still, it forced me to get used to shooting fast. I got pretty good at hitting the things out to maybe 20-25 yds. Up close I think it would have been very effective on anyone who might have come at me. The pistol was what I planned to use if necessity demanded it. If the Ruger didn't settle things, I figured to use the knife. It is amazing what one can do with a good knife.

Both my wife and my daughters have learned to shoot handguns and rifles. My wife has learned to use even a .45 ACP effectively. She is comfortable with the Glock G-22 that we currently use for HD. My daughters are not wild about handguns, but both of them are extremely capable with a .22 LR revolver or pistol. A .22 LR handgun is not the ultimate SD/HD weapon. But it is a good choice for many who need such a weapon and who for whatever reason find a larger caliber weapon not to be an option. JMHO. Sincerely. Brucev.

I will say this if you do not have a .40 caliber pistol(Which Walmart has a plentiful supply of ammo) say you have a 9mm, 380, 357 magnum or .45 acp Walmarts for many miles in my area have NO ammo to sell. Sure you can pay double price elsewhere, if you can find it but when is the next time you can afford to shoot a centerfire ammo gun? Its a drought out there, so .22's are the only economical ammo anymore...

You cannot buy any .40 at walmarts in south central FL.

It's unreal. .22 is all I shoot anymore.

All we have is oceans of .40 caliber plus some .22's. Ocasionally we get some 9mm or .45 acp and some .38 specials. No .380 to be seen period. Once ammo production gets ramped up further look out! Sales galore I hope...

When I travel out of town my wife prefers my Ruger MKII with Tactical Solutions PAC LITE upper as her primary weapon of choice. It is very accurate and very reliable.

Usually loaded with Stingers, she is very comfortable and capable with this weapon even though she has a .38 snub she shoots quite well. I think the main reason she prefers the .22 is because since we live out in the county there are multiple targets of opportunity that come up, not just bad guys. She is more likely to have to deal with snakes, dogs, coyotes, raccoons, 'possums, and such, and she has dispatched at least one of each at variuos times.

My first gun was given to me in 1982 (I was under 21 years old at that time) by a family member. It was a Colt Trooper in .22LR. I loaded it with .22LR CCI Stingers for my first HD gun.

I am putting money aside to buy .22 revolvers for my daughters (the oldest is 10) I would love for them to have a quality steel DA .22lr revolver with a 3" to 4" barrel like the Colt Trooper, the Ruger SP-101 or the S&W Model 63. Unfortunately all have been discontinued except for the S&W 63 but that only comes in a 5" barrel. S&W also re-introduced the Model 18 with the 4"bbl but at an MSRP of over $1,000 I rather take my chances on the used market. I like them to have something that will last several lifetimes, and they can uses as a trainer, for home defense in a pinch, and something they can hopefully teach my grandkids to shoot with.

Good luck on the second hand search, people hang on to those little gems.
