I have a few .22 handguns around the house and would not hesitate to use one.

Not only NO, but Eff You See Kay NO! I dont gamble, especially with my life. There is no reason to use .22 as home defense other than, "I don;t wann hurt the poor home invader."

There might be better tools, but it can do the job. I think a .22 semi auto carbine would be just the ticket for some people intimidated by handguns or larger calibers. Easy to aim and capable of putting out a devastating rate of fire. Good granny gun.

Yup...Consider every instance where some unarmed elderly person or other relatively helpless person was brutalized by home invaders...Now, put a 10/22 in the victim's hands and the ability to use it -- and see how the outcome changes...

Would I use a .22? In a heartbeat - tho I'd prefer a .22mag to a .22lr. I carry a NAA Mini in .22 mag now (BUG) and my wife carries one too. It clips into my pocket like a pocket knife and is at the ready if I need it.

The non threat rifle.

My Daughter is not a gun person, but lives in country, in Florida, I will teach her how to load and fire my 10-22.

Give it to her and show how to shoot people!

.22

During the first riots in Miami in 1980, my cousin loaded his 10-22 and drove to his girlfriend's house to protect her. He still tells that story and he never says,"I wish I had something bigger." He was happy just to be armed. No shots were fired, nor did any rioters show up in the part of town they were in.
True story.

True story.

When confronted by someone armed with a 10/22, the bad guy is more likely to say:

a) "He11 -- it's only a .22...We can take him!"

or

b) "Oh, crap -- he's got a gun!!!"

If the Bad Guy picked A) he would definately win a Darwin Award.

I like what others have said about a "granny gun". I think no one is suggesting that everyone sell off their 1911 and AR because you can do the same thing with a .22lr, but for folks who cannot handle or afford a centerfire handgun or rifle, a 22lr will get the job done.

No one doubts the lethality of a .22. Most victims die from internal bleeding.

The point of a self defense round is to take out your attacker before he takes you out. Stopping power is everything.

Nothing beats a shotgun for home defense. A 20 GA loaded with #1 will do the job well, without a ton of recoil.

If that is all you got

In perspective. I would rather have a larger caliber weapons than a .22lr but if it is all I own then oh well. On the same note that is to say I would rather have a baseball bat than nothing at all. I would rather have a katana than a baseball bat. I don t think you have to worry about one of those jamming on you either.

The twenty two is an awesome round (the smaller the nose, the deeper it goes)

My Uncle Basil in WW11 a couple of days after landing in France took cover in a shell hole, in a field, as the sun rose higher he was targeted by what turned out to be a Hitler Youth (in uniform!) early teen. Weapon was a single shot target rifle.

The sniper was in a tree, about 100yds away (Basil said) the only part of his body that could be seen was his arm, it was shot more than once, the bone of the forearm (right arm) shattered.

He was joined in his crater by a Bren Gunner when the Sun had turned the hole into deep shadow. The LMG gunner worked out the location of the sniper, and a burst of .303 dropped him out of the tree. My cousins told me a swing from dad's false arm was an attention getter.
